What a great surprise!

When I first heard of this album, I was a little weary of getting it. Michael's my favorite singer, but the thought of him doing original holiday tunes didn't sound real appealing to me.

What a nice surprise I got when I finally did hear this album. This contains some of his best songwriting ever! In fact, I think a lot of the stuff on here sounds like some of his Doobie Brothers' music. This is really a good thing. Even though I've enjoyed most of his solo albums, most of his solo stuff hasn't sounded like his Doobies' stuff.

It sounds like Michael was very inspired in his writing and singing on this album. There's a lot of passion to be heard on this one. It's definitely one of his best albums.

Love it!!

Michael W. Smith is an amazing artist and worship leader. This cd includes many of my favorite worship songs. They are all beautiful and full of power. I always want to cry when he sings "Breathe." I could tell the the reason I love each song, but I won't do that. I'll simply say that this is a wonderful collection of what I call the contemporary classics. I haven't regretted this purchase for a second. I only regret that I didn't get to make it to the Worship tour!

Not at all impressed.....

Perhaps I anticipated too much this time, but I was very dissappointed. As many other reviewers have stated, I have been around since Gish and turned a number of friends on to the band. This perhaps was too much of a departure. I have always liked the "slower" tunes, but this was too slow and dark. I will continue to listen to Adore, searching for what many of the other reviewers have raved about...the interesting search continues.

Madonna's Music

Well Ive been a madonna fan for a few years now.... And I must say - she's turning to the wrong side of music. Yes the song is wonderful - but she has strayed. Or could it be perhaps that she knows she can never out do her ray of light album and has turned to dance and rap music? I dont know. But this song is absoloutly garbage compared to RAY OF LIGHT, FROZEN and THE POWER OF GOODBYE, and so fourth. These song's were utterly amazing, and she will never be able to out do herself now.
The song is nice to listen to loud, to annoy the neighbours. Its nice to dance do...and to do the housework to. I live in Australia and here we were lucky to recieve a 2- CD single containing 14 remixes, the video and a computer screensaver. If your a madonna fan - get it ! If you enjoy dance music, get it! But if you're expecting something similar to ray of light it will dissapoint you. Hopefully her next few singles will be better. I have heard 'Paradise', and it seems OK.
Hope this helps.
