Of course I'm gonna have to say it's great. I really like it. There's a lot of really great songs on here. With one's like "The Great Adventure", "That's Paradise", and "Maria" just to name a few, you've got a great collection!
Favorite Song: "Got To B Tru". It's funny and another of my favorite groups, DC Talk dropped by for a visit to help out Steven(Tobymac has a solo). I really like it a lot.

This is a really fun cd. I love how Steven Curtis Chapman always has songs that are beautiful and slow or fun and full of energy, yet always full of the sound only he can give.
His first shift| Posted October 26, 2007
This album marked SCC's first shift in image and music, but still keeping to his roots and his strengths. I remember the outcry from fans on his cutting his hair--isn't that funny? This was a fun album, though.
