Jeremy Camp [Reckless]| Posted February 05, 2013 Jeremy Camp has experienced the depth of God's mercy after losing his first wife Melissa to cancer. Over ten years ago, his debut album Stay featured songs expressing Jeremy's reliance on God including “I Still Believe” and “Walk By Faith” which hooked me immediately because they are so personal and biblical. Jeremy has gone on to become a best-selling artist with hit songs “Take You Back,” “Let It Fade,” “There Will Be A Day” and his cover of “Overcome” written by Jon Egan of Desperation Band. Up to Speaking Louder Than Before, each album has improved on telling that personal faith journey that Jeremy is walking, particularly since marriage to his wife Adrienne, also an accomplished artist formerly in the band The Benjamin Gate who released two great albums of her own, Don't Wait and Just You & Me.
Camp's newest album Reckless has a cohesiveness and spiritual maturity that I can hear in every song. The opener “Reckless” has a catchy and engaging feel and the theme is a great reminder and challenge to be reckless for Christ in our worldly culture and society. It is one of the best songs Jeremy has ever recorded with these sincere lyrics: “I will lose my life and just let go, because I know this world is not my home, with fearless faith, I won’t be moved, unshakeable inside Your truth, You laid down Your life, and gave it up, so I’ll give it up.” The song has already made an impact on Christian radio charts and if you like Jeremy’s previous hit songs of worship, then you’ll also enjoy this song and album. The album includes several more songs of personal worship which struck me, especially “The Way You Love Me,” “Free” and “Without You.” I especially love the confession in “The Way You Love Me” where Jeremy praises God for His grace and mercy for still loving us while we are still sinners with the great bridge—“Because of all the love You’ve shown, I will give my life away, give it all away.”
There are several signature style personal songs by Jeremy with very biblical lyrics and a personal calling out to God in faithfulness, such as in “Paradise” which acknowledges that this world is not our permanent home. Jeremy understands about living for eternity as he proclaims “On my knees, I will glorify, in Paradise, One day, I know I will be with You in Paradise, until that day I will surrender all my life, we’ll sing Hallelujah, Hallelujah, every knee will bow and say, Hallelujah, we’ll bring glory to Your name.” Amen to that! Bookending his personal commitment to walk with Christ, the album closes with another standout song “Without You,” which ends with the sincere words “I won’t make a move without You.”
Filled with passionate songs birthed in the furnace of worship, prayer and intercession, Jeremy Camp’s new studio album Recklessis a powerful experience calling the body of Christ to a revival and restoration in Christ with eleven brand new original songs. The highlights are “Reckless,” “The Way You Love Me,”“Free,” “Paradise,” “We Must Remember” and “Without You.” The songs all have strong messages. There are several reflective songs for times of worship and adoration. There really aren’t any rockers like “Take My Life,” “Lay Down My Pride” or “Tonight,” and this album displays a softer adult contemporary musical style. The album is filled with messages of hope, confession and worship to our great God and Savior. Jeremy Camp’s enthusiastic and reverent style of writing and singing praise and worship songs has consistently been a draw for me. Camp’s prayerful sentiments are consistently filled with his personal adoration of God. Reckless is no exception.
The Heart of the Artist| Posted February 18, 2013
I feel the heart of Jeremy in his songs, To call us out to be the Christians we should be and the wonderings of how that can really happen. Jeremy's music turns my ears and heart toward God's plan. As a fan of Jeremy's music I am always surprised at how fresh and challenging each new song is. Love It.
He strikes once again| Posted February 15, 2013
Jeremy Camp has been among my favourite Christian artists for a long time. His heartfelt lyrics that get to the core of an issue and challenge you in your faith.
I had read some early reviews of it and they had criticized his lack of diversity. For me that was not the case. So after reading those reviews I went into this CD with low expectations...but boy was my mind blown. Jeremy Camp, while offering no rockers as in past albums, delievers some of his best music and best writing. From the powerful "Reckless" to realizing the hope that we have in Jesus Christ in "Paradis".
Jeremy Camp's reckless ablum might not be not be as groundbreaking as some of his past work but he still offers some original stuff and has endeavored on his latest, and what might be his best work lyrically to date
Reckless: A CAMPerís Take on Jeremy Campís Latest CD| Posted February 14, 2013
February 12, 2009 I became a CAMPer. Four years later I hold in my hands Reckless, the latest CD from Jeremy Camp. The CD confirms why I became a CAMPer in the first place. Four weeks ago I tweeted Jeremy letting him know that I was trying to have the song “Reckless” as a prayer for my life. Listening to the other 10 tracks on the album, many of them have lyrics that also resonate deeply and are becoming prayers for my life. With each album, I have seen how Jeremy has grown in his relationship with God learning about Him, learning about himself, and seeing parts of what God had planned because of what Jeremy has gone through. Reckless stirs the soul and moves the spirit to a deeper bolder relationship with God. I see a spiritual maturity in Jeremy and his music with this album that was visibly a work in progress before.
Reckless has so much worship built into it that the only thing that keeps it from being a worship album is the album’s classification by Jeremy’s record label. I would say that someone forgot to tell him that this was not going to be a worship album (and we the listeners benefit). I listen to all 11 tracks and want to raise my hands in worship while totally rocking out. I have described Jeremy’s music as rockin’ worship. This album is no exception. As much as I think all of Jeremy’s albums are great, this is Jeremy’s best album yet.
