Love Has Come For Me
Posted June 24, 2013
Colton Dixon made an incredible first album. The rock is amazing and the vocals are blended perfectly. With a mix of piano and electric guitar, fast and slow songs, 'A Messenger' has got it all.
The 'Intro' builds up excitment as we dive headfirst into 'Noise'. In a world with so many distractions, we need to listen for God's voice.
Moving on, we hear 'I'll Be The Light'. It's a little slower than the previous song, but still just as pasionate.
Colton's first radio single, 'You Are' is a beautiful worship song. It's very meaningful and full of emotion.
'Never Gone' is one of my favorites. "I'm still standing here, No I didn't disapear. Now the lights are on, See I was never gone. I let go of your hand, To help you understand. With you all along, Oh, I was never gone." It talks about God being there for you. Always. He'll never leave you, or forsake you, he'll always be there even when we can't find him. This song is so full.
Next we see 'Love Has Come For Me'. The best line has got to be "I'm never gonna get it all together. So what's left to do but surrender". I find it so amazing how true the song can be for me.
'Scars' is simply touching. All those things we wish we could change, all those things we regret. "Scars remind us who we are". The bridge is incredibly powerful. It's a desperate cry out to God. I love how at the end of the song it changes from 'Our scars' to 'Your scars' . It's so amazing to think of Jesus dying for us, and what it took. 'Scars' hits so many key points. It's beautiful.
'Rise' and 'Where My Heart Goes' perfectly follow the past songs. I personally love the bridge of 'Where My Heart Goes'. "Runs to, cligns to, Jesus, I so need You. I want You to be where my heart goes". Mix that with the killer vocals, and you're 'wowed'.
'This Is Who I Am' is rocking. It's excelent and exciting.
The most exhilerating song on the album is 'In and Out of Time'. It's fast pace, builds to a climax, and crazy. It's just awesome!
The final song on the album is 'Let Them See You' . Colton considered it the album's missing piece, but now it ties together everything perfectly. It's the only exclusivly piano song on the album, and it's also the prettiest.
The vocals on this album are huge. They're so cool. The instruments are amazing. The lyrics are gripping. This album is literally invigerating. It's one of my all time favorites. It will touch your life.
