This CD arrived during breakfast and so I put it on to play without looking at the artist. (It was an advance copy without a cover.) The first track woke us all up, being reminiscent of Degarmo And Key. Obviously, because when we looked at the CD we discovered it is a solo album by Dana Key. It is a brilliant album and we have played it a lot, I think I may become a favourite. The vocals are in Dana Key's distinctive style and the lyrics are interesting. The musical style is more acoustic than Degarmo And Key's more rocky sound. It is difficult to pick favourite tracks when you like them all but three that stand out are the title track, the third track and the guitar style on the last track, which presents the gospel message. This CD has all that an album should have; it is musically varied, the lyrics are interesting and you can hear what the singer is saying. I will have to play this a lot this evening because I have a friend waiting to listen to it!

Who would know the title would ring loud and true 15 years later. The tribute song for Eric Clapton was first song I heard on ccm airwaves, very touching: no doubt this is the cd stand out song.
Containing over 1 hour of great 90's ccm songs, this cd comes highly recommended; the title song kicks off the list, top notch ccm I love it! "Invisible Kingdom" is another that speaks about the invisible GOD; great ccm: this song entwines with "That's What Love is All
About" a song teaching about love.
I love "Rain On"; "Lunatic, Liar or LORD" gives the listener an earful to take in, very thought provoking.
"Mary" an old song for double live Degarmo & Key recorded in 1981 released in 1982 ends the song set in great acoustic style another top favorite on cd.
We lost a great man of faith who was not ashamed to sing about JESUS; Heaven has gained another.
GOD Bless! -don
