His Best Album | Posted November 01, 2010
This is by far Matthew West's album. His song "Only Grace" is so powerful. I love listening to this song when it comes on the radio or my ipod. The song "History", the title track, is the song that got me into Matthew West. I love that song. It is such a call for the Church to stand up and make a difference in this world. Highly recommend this album.

Next Thing You Know | Posted March 24, 2010
I'm not a real big fan of Matthew West, but when this CD came out in 2004, I found I had more respect for him and his music.

His song "Next Thing You Know" is I beleive a very good song. It's the first song I've heard form this CD. So I went and bought the CD and ended up listing to the other songs now I enjoy his music.

History is also a good song. I would recommend this CD.

Bringing the Family Together! | Posted October 31, 2009
My mom and I don't always agree on music, but we definitely agree on Matthew West! Especially his song, Next Thing Ya Know. I don't mind talking to my mom in car because she has this playing a lot of times! I love the song History too! It really speaks a lot about my life! :D Keep singing!

Matthew West | Posted October 13, 2009
The catchy song, "Next Thing You Know", that I heard on the radio made me want to look up this Matthew West guy. I ended up buying this album - I loved the songs. However, I played it so much that I just got tired of it; I stopped listening to it. However, a couple months ago I saw the case sitting on my stereo and recalled hearing Matthew's new single, "Motions", on the radio, and decided to pop it in. I was once again taken by the is really good. "Only Grace" is one of my all time favorite songs. All but one or two of the songs are worth listening to over and over again...and by now, this album should be cheap. Go buy it!

Right when I started liking Matthew West | Posted September 30, 2009
This CD was what really got me started on liking Christian music. From "Only Grace" to "History" to "Next Thing You Know", I was encouraged to further realize all that Christian music had to offer. God truly touched me and He is continuing to impact me through music honoring Him.

His Best | Posted September 03, 2009
History is by far his best album..I love the title track - it's so true and it's lyrics aren't in cliche CCM form- the next thing you know is another good song that is really fun to listen to- only grace is an awesome reminder about how awesome our GOD IS.
