"Glory All Around", by Selah Member Amy Perry, Contains No Surprises ~ #FamilyChristian

We love music at our house and were thrilled to be able to review the newest CD from Amy Perry! My husband, Rick, was kind enough to write the review of this wonderful CD.

. That's a good thing. Selah, before and during Perry's participation, has received seven Dove awards and demonstrated a consistent dedication to songs which honor God and encourage an attitude of praise and adoration. This solo project, with music set firmly within the Christian contemporary mold, continues that effort. It is, in fact, the theme of the song "Letting Go", and the underlying subtext of every track. By the way, "Letting Go" may be the only song I've heard which contains the word "subtext" in the lyrics. 

Many Christian artists produce projects which avoid overtly Christians terms, never mentioning God in more than vague terms. An entire "Christian" album with no direct reference to Jesus, Lord, Savior, etc is tantamount to "having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof". This album stands squarely against that trend; the songs "Fervor of the King" and "When I Speak Your Name" boldly proclaim God's unique love and majesty, and show the link between the adoration of God and the hopeful Christian life.

"Glory All Around" is is an excellent choice as an introduction to Amy Perry or for anyone who enjoys the music of Selah.

[PS While both Amy Perry and fellow band member Alan Hall released solo albums in 2014, both continue to be members of Selah and will be on tour this spring.]

This is one CD our whole family enjoys! You can purchase your own HERE at Family Christian Stores!

I received a sample of the CD to review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed are those of the author.
