Sealed| Posted November 01, 2012
This is the album that sealed the deal, making Todd Agnew my all time favorite christian male vocalist. His voice is beyond raw and original. It is so deep and rich. The music is so very "New Orleans" blues/jazz/rock. And lyrically he is spot on in terms of theology. Todd doesn't just sing words that make the song rhyme and flow,he sings the hard truths that often are ignored by other artists. My favorite song on the album....really it is too hard to concretely decide on such a thing with theses songs all being so good...is "New Name".
Updated Review| Posted December 04, 2009
I've Been Listening to "Reflection of Something" and there are some highlights to this CD.
One of My Favorite Songs of This Album Is "My Jesus" Because it just tells what needs to be said. "Pretty blue eyes / and curly brown hair / and a clear complexion / Is how you see Him as He dies for your sins / But the Word says He was battered and scarred." Those Are Powerful Lyrics; You Just Don't See That In Christian Music Today.
Another Song Is "Unchanging One" Because It Is About How No Matter What We Do, Good Or Bad, He Is The Only Unchanging One. You know when I wake, when I rise, when I pray, when I curse You
And You love me the same. And You know when I stumble and fall and You’re there through it all
The only unchanging one

The Last Highlight Is The Very Energetic Song (And One Of My Favorites) is "Where Were You" because it goes back to the book of "JOB" in the BIBLE. How God Was Talking To Job And Said "Were You There When I Laid The Foundations Of The Earth And Set Its Boundaries", Were You There When I Created The Fist Man And Woman", and Job responds "I Will Just Shut Up, I Know Nothing!
That Is Basically What The Chorus Says
"Where were you when I split the sky and sea?
Where were you when I taught the lion to roar?
Where were you when I made electricity?
Fall from the sky in the middle of a thunderstorm
Where were you?
Then There Are The Songs I Could Just Ignore "Something Beautiful" "New Name" "Isaiah 6"
the bonus track "It Is Well", "Blood On My Hands"
and "Always There"
The Songs I Liked On the Album Were "My Jesus" "Unchanging One" "Where Were You" "The Wonder of It All" & "In The Middle Of Me"
This cd is truly something beautiful!| Posted February 22, 2009
Todd's humble worshipper's heart really shows in this album. This one starts off with "Something Beautiful", a real edgy tune that rocks! Other songs like "Blood On My Hands", "Isaiah 6" and "Always There" are beautifully written. All of the other songs are great too, but the one that really hits home is the hit single "My Jesus". That song should really hit home with any Christian who needs to know where they stand with their Saviour. Let me share with you a part of that song: "Cause my Jesus would never be accepted in my church. The blood and dirt on His feet might stain the carpet. But He reaches for the hurting and despises the proud, I think He’d prefer Beale St. to the stained glass crowd, And I know that He can hear me if I cry out loud, 'I want to be like my Jesus'"
That song will truly bless you.
His rendition of "It Is Well" serves as the hidden track to wrap up this excellent album.

This is Todd Agnew followup to his debut and it just doesnt grab you like his first CD does. Dont get me wrong it still has the powerful lyrics and Agnew unique voice but it just isnt the same. Songs that are great though are "My Jesus" which shows us the real Jesus and how he is portrayed. "In the middle of me" is just a fun sing along song. "Isaih 6" and "Unchanging One" are also standout songs. If your a fan then this is a must buy but If you can then buy a few of the songs not the whole album
Good album| Posted July 15, 2008
Arguably Todd Agnews best album. Then Again Todd Agnew hasn't ever made a bad one and you could argue any of them realy good. I like his different arangements of old hymns and origanal songs equally and both are a very high quality of music.
