Over the years Brandon Heath has developed to become one of CCM's finest singer/songwriters and this latest set, with its laid back Americana tinges and its masterly production from Dan Muckala, is already being identified as possibly Brandon's best. The three standout tracks are the opener "The Harvester", "Dyin' Day", which, as one reviewer described, "lets everything out in one big loud breath," and the poignant closer "Love Does". Brandon's reflections on what he feels about life, love, hurt and everything in between is elegantly executed and if you rated Brandon's previous releases like 'Don't Get Comfortable' and 'What If We' you will find Brandon's blend of lyrical introspection and songwriting savvy irresistible.
