Richly Blessed | Posted May 05, 2009
I recently was sent this Cd and asked to give my review on this site. Here goes
Newcomer Jason Allen Rich has put out his first CD titled A Beautiful Life.I will say that Jason is an excellent singer/songwriter. His voice is easy to listen to.The opening tract,"Taste and See" is a good song.It is a good reminder of what it is to be a servant of the Lord. My favorite song on the CD is "Redefine".On this song,Jason sounds a lot like Phil Wickham to me.
(this is very good- right Wookie).The chorus of this song really spoke to me."For all of my life
I will trust you with all of my life.You alone can satisfy me.With your love you redefine me".
This is how I feel about the Lord. I must say I got choked up the first few times I heard this song.It is now definitely one of my favorites.
"Lamb of Glory" and "A Million Angels" are also very good songs.
My only complaint about this Cd is there are only 6 songs on it. I would love to hear more songs from Jason. I for one cannot wait for his next release.

I really liked this | Posted April 29, 2009
I listened to the CD twice, once in the living room of my house, once in my room with headphones. Here's what I thought:

Taste And See- My favorite song on this CD. I really liked the beat of this one and the flute(?, or whatever that was) added a nice touch. It starts off slow and picks up by the chorus. The word choices ("reservoirs" for example) were interesting.

Take Us Away- A song of longing for the rapture, it's comforting in that while we hurt now, there is yet hope for the future. The song is medium tempo and the verses are not disjointed; they segue well into each other.

Arms Open Wide- Desribes the day the narrator came to Jesus, and all the good things God is. Speaks of the trust we should have in God. It's a very upbeat song and the guitar-playing is great. Ends off quietly.

Redefined- Another trust in God song; also proclaims the singer has been made new. The chorus is unusually high-pitched. Could have done without background Jason-computer voice.

Lamb of Glory- Repeating the same verse for first and second really drives the point home about Jesus' sarcifice. The simple piano and strings background really works for this song; it makes it more of a slow, quiet, worshipful moment. However, it ends too abruptly.

A Million Angels- Thanks God for caring, asks the question that so many have wondered; "Why does God love me?". Expresses his dedication to God. Not sure if I liked it or not, but why does his voice go from one pitch to another in each part of each verse?

Final Verdict- A great first CD, I'd love to see more out of him.

(My mom listened with me the first time and she likes it too. Except she thinks that the instruments drown him out sometimes.)

Soon to be a popular ccm name | Posted April 18, 2009
Jason Allen Rich's debut album/EP definitely has the sound for a contemporary christian worship artist. On some songs I would compare him a little bit to Jeremy Camp and even somewhat to MercyMe.

Musically the album isn't anything astounding but with "Lamb of Glory" there is a nice piano backing that shows that Jason Allen Rich isn't just a one trick pony. Vocally, he sounds like a cross between Chris Daughtry and Jeremy Camp, which in my opinion is a pretty good thing.

The lyrics will definitely fit in with other ccm artists. With lines like "Oh Lord, come back to us. How long will you delay? Satisfy with love and take us away." (Take Us Away), Jason seems to follow in the typical CCM lyrical format.

My favorites on this album are Take Us Away, Arms Open Wide, and Lamb of Glory. This album isn't groundbreaking or even very original with many of the songs sounding similar to various other CCM artists, but Jason Allen Rich is on his way to making a name for himself in the CCM world.
