This 'Deluxe Gold Edition' of the American songwriter and worship leader's successful 2004 album includes the 12 tracks found on the original release plus two self-penned new songs, and two cover versions of familiar worship songs, "Hungry" and "Let Everything That Has Breath". The latter is the weakest track here, adding nothing new to a well-loved song while his take of the Vineyard UK classic is more successful. Of the new songs, "Burden Me" is an excellent rock anthem, while "Stand By" has an infectious chorus. If you already own 'Restored' you will have to decide whether two new songs are worth the extra outlay. However, for listeners new to Jeremy Camp, the new material makes for an extremely good value for money package. This is a quality album, though the lyrics are fairly general - any Christian can relate to them. It would be nice to hear some more personal reflections. The album encompasses stadium anthems, powerful rock and orchestral ballads. Initially it seems nothing sparklingly original with a generic pop rock sound, but it repays repeated listening.

Jeremy is a nice welcomed addition to the ccm genre for the millenium years. This is actually the first cd that I bought of his; after seeing the video for "I'll Take You Back": just loved it, made a connection.
The cd explodes off with the starter title song; the music lifts you up!His wife Adrienne adds her great vocals to bgvs for title song and others. Kudos to Jeremy's songwriting talent! I really like Jeremy's liner notes for the songs, nice extra reading material. "Even 'When" has same theme as "I'll Take You Back"; great song! I luv "My Desire". Jeremy's strong vocals shine on every song, wtg Jeremy!
Believers can find a connection with every song on the cd in one way or another. "This Man", wow! what a song for ccm! thanx Jeremy: btw great strings for the song. I like the song "Hungry". This cd is nearly 1 hour of music, nice benefit. GOD Bless! -Don
