A Very Good Change

Fans of The Benjamin Gate were not only stunned, but also delighted to hear that in 2006, after a brief period away from music, former Ben Gate lead singer Adrienne Liesching-Camp would be releasing her first solo project after the disbanding of the group in late 2003. After the ending of the band, Adrienne (now going by ‘Adie’) focused on her new life as wife to then up and comer Jeremy Camp and growing their family with the addition of their two daughters in 2004 and 2006. With all that change, it was bound to happen that Adie’s sound, known as rock at best, would change and become, yes, MUCH softer.

‘Don’t Wait’ opens with the raging acoustics on the first track ‘Your Way’, the change from The Benjamin Gate to this album is evident right away…this isn’t the same style anymore and while most fans may not want to embrace that, many loyalists would find it refreshing and a great change of pace. ‘When It’s Over’ and ‘Sufficient’ follow suit with spot on piano throughout. ‘don’t Wait (Lazy Day)’ is one of the most pop driven songs on the album while ‘Overwhelm Me’ takes on a soulful edge with clever lyrics to boot, about needing God’s love to overwhelm us and set us free.

‘Time’ is the standout track on this album, a very soft moment of worship about not wasting the God given time that we are given. ‘If I’ll Ever’ brings back the upbeat pop that this album carries so well while ‘What Have I Done’ another moment of worship on the album is sure to touch your Spirit. A moment of asking God ‘what have I done to deserve Your endless love?’ and then with the realization of ‘You’ve made me worthy of You’. a very powerful moment on the album. ‘Broken’ is driven by acoustic guitar and a shirt cameo by husband Jeremy Camp on this track is sure to make fans of both artists very happy. The album closes with Adie’s rendition of the 60’s favorite ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’ (taken out of the book of Ecclesiastes), the most rock driven song on the album, THIS is the one that most Benjamin Gate fans were waiting to hear on this album and it doesn’t disappoint.

Fans of Jeremy’s style of music are sure to become fans of Adie’s right away, and while it might take TBG fans a but to get used to Adie’s new style of music, in the end they are sure to see that it is the game girl writing the same God loving, passion driven lyrics--just with a different sound. And it’s a very good change.
