Reviewed by Pauline Cooke

This debut album from the latest artist to be signed by Rocketown (Michael W Smith) has enough variety for even the most wide-ranging taste; from the mournful but appropriately upbeat ballad about death, "Last Notes", to the acoustic/rock thrash mix of "Should I Tell Them" and "Move Me". The US Christian radio turntable hit "Welcome Home" is wonderful, the lyrics a quirky antidote to home decorating, the focus on changing hearts rather than changing rooms! The whole album has good, well balanced musical arrangements. The lyrics, clearly centred in honest worship but with plenty to make one pause for reflection. Atmospheric and vulnerable.

I have this debut cd by Shaun, just great!! I was watching pre-dawn gospel videos(TBN I believe); songs to picture scenes all around the world, with scripture quotes. If you have never caught a glimpse of these, I would urge you STRONGLY to get up early, or stay up late and see a few. The scenes are simply beautiful, and awesome to see!! The song I heard by Shaun Groves was "Welcome Home"; I just luved it immediately!! great song by a new ccm artist. Another favorite song on the cd is "After the Music Fades". Welcome aboard the ccm train Shaun!!
GOD Bless! -Don
