A very acceptable album from a lass who's been getting herself noticed over the last few years by opening gigs for people like Jeni Varnadeau and Satellite Soul and by being featured on the website of Margaret Becker, no less; apparently, Robin is Maggie B's favourite indie artist. Her songwriting style is Jennifer Knapp/Sarah Masen, but at a fraction of the budget, and her songs are intelligent, inspiring and totally Scriptural. This is her second album, and fave track on first listening is "All The Grace In The World", with the arresting thought that "We'll never do anything for God until we're convinced he's done everything for us", but if Admiral Cummings will let me keep the CD for a while longer, I'll doubtless find more to massage my shell-likes. Production is excellent (Chris Omartian, son of Michael, is involved, so it's no surprise), and I can recommend this one as worth seeking out.
