A Great Addition To An Already GREAT Album!

Matthew West's 2008 release 'Something To Say' is something to remember all on it's own--a fantasic album WELL worth the money you spend to hear it, but this 2009 Christmas season, Matthew and record label Sparrow Records have put together 'Something To Say: Christmas Edition'.
This album is a fine idea...basically the entire 'Something To Say' album with a few other Christmas songs and some acoustic takes on favorites are tacked onto the end of the album. There is 'Christmas Makes Me Cry', which was featured on Mandisa's 'It's Christmas' album a few years back, as well as the new song on the album, a duet with Amy Grant titled 'Give This Christmas Away'...a song that changes people's perspective on what December 25th really is and a challenge for followers of Christ to truly understand that it is 'better to give'...a wonderful song and well worth the re-release alone. There are acoustic versions of 'The Motions' and the moving 'Save A Place For Me' that are sure to leave anyone a fan of Matthew.
While people migt say that this re-release was un-nessasary, I COMPLETLY dissagree. This is a fantastic way to gift Matthew's album to family and friends this Christmas season, and to make fans of people who have never heard his music or ministry.
I am thankful that they have released the last few tracks to iTunes for those of us who already own the original version of the album, but believe me when I say, it would be well worth buying the whole thing again to get this extended version.
