"Jesus loves me, this I know - for the Bible tells me so." At two and a half years of age, they were the first words that Sandi Patty ever sang. Five Grammy awards, three dozen Dove awards and 11 million albums later, they are STILL the words that resonate in the depths of her soul. 'These Days' is her first studio album release for three years and what a comeback it is. There are so many good songs but, for me, the pick has to be "Solo El Amor" (Only Love). Dueting with Latin singing sensation Miguel Angel Guerra, it's a tremendous song that tells of the time when God impacts the life of a person and makes them perfectly whole. "All This Time" was co-written by Sandi and her friend Cindy Morgan as a touching tribute to her daughter, with her vocals caressing each word as only a mother speaking to her child can. It's an album that will appeal to a wide age range because, although pop orientated, there's plenty of different styles contained within. "Go Without Knowing" has a Celtic tinge to it, while "One More Song For You" is very reminiscent of the Carpenters.
