Leaving Eden presents a new Brandon Heath. This isn't actually good. Heath leaves his traditional songwriting which was good, and aims for a more spiritual writing focusing on inner turmoil.
For instance Leaving Eden, the title track, says he feels like he is leaving Eden. Were never in Eden. So honestly I can understand maybe figuratively as in the comforts of our home. But still this is never explain. I feel that Heath leaves out his incredible skills to write about exterior turmoil. This album seems to leave out hope. Only a couple songs speak of a real hope, the one we find in Christ. Yet the album seems to dwell on the trouble of this world. I would like to see Brandon focus on God and stories more than trouble.
Overall Heath takes a step backward in an album that should've been better.
