This is a reflective, contemplative Susan Ashton, proclaiming a heartfelt desire to return to 'square one' with our Heavenly Father. Unfortunately, this bout of post-marriage introspection borders on the melancholy leaving scant room for the more joyful pop pronouncements of previous albums. Track after track blur into musical anonymity leaving this listener with a sense of drowsy disappointment. Only "Hold The Intangible" and "Waiting For Your Love To Come Down" risk leaving the obscurity of this 10 track offering. Still, devotees will surely add this to ' their Ashton collection but, I fear, only to gather dust in the CD rack. Marriage has clearly fostered a more ruminative Ashton. Hopefully, future albums will express this new-found maturity in less dreary style.

Susan's 3rd project produced by the talented Wayne Kirkpatrick. I immedately luved and connected with the beautiful "Waiting for YOUR Love to Come Down". It's like the perfect song for Susan to sing!! kudos to the songwriters Jeff & Gayla Borders. I luv the intro to cd opener "Summer Solstice";great song!! "Remember Not" has that great quality of a pop classic ccm song! I also like "Hold the Intangible"; great harmony on "Call of the Wild". What a cd closer, the beautiful "A Rose is a Rose";JD Cunningham's harmony is just amazing and wonderful:great job on the song. GOD Bless! -Don
