This album is in fact a re-release of a set of tracks originally released, without Larry's permission, by a European company under the misleading title 'The Best Of Larry Norman'. Though not really his best it does contain some gems ranging from fairly heavy rock to his more contemplative ballads. Some of these tracks are about his radical faith, others are pure love songs like the catchy rock and roll number "I'm Going To Write A Song About You For The Radio". These two themes are combined with the classic "Woman Of God" (based on that famed passage in Proverbs 31). I love the sounds on the introduction of "Messiah" even though I'm not sure where this stirring apocalyptic imagery is going. Listening to these songs just confirms that Larry Norman is a giant of Christian rock who deserves his reputation amongst the cognoscente.
