This is the same CD currently being marketed in the US and overseas as 'Just Come In'. Don't ask me why, but Kingsway are using a different name! I'd hate to bestow the kiss-of-death title 'Queen of CCM', so I won't. Margaret Becker has been a prolific and highly respected artist on the scene for the last two decades, and she's showing no signs of tapering off as she hits her 40s. This CD brings together some of her personal favourite tracks and she (together with a high class list of collaborators) re-interprets them here with a pared down, acoustic feel. The result is that the songs, stripped of the strictly transitory trappings of pop, charm anew. A breath of unfiltered fresh air. Standouts? "Feel It All"and "All I Ever Wanted."
