I love music, and I listen to a lot of it. That being said, there are two artists whose music I always return to. Chances are if I don’t know what to listen to, I’ll put in Steven Curtis Chapman or Andrew Peterson. Every time I listen to their songs I am reminded of the season of life I was in when that music first became meaningful to me. Listening back through their respective discographies is like a walk through memory lane, spiritually speaking!
That’s why I was so excited to hear that Andrew Peterson had a new album–a “best of” collection coming out. With so many awesome tracks to choose from, I’m sure he had a difficult time narrowing down the final list! There are some great favorites on here, a few new songs, and some re-recordings of old tunes that are very well done. I especially love the new version of “After the Last Tear Falls.” If you listen closely, you’ll hear traces of “Carry the Fire,” one of my favorites that didn’t make it onto this cd.
I’m certainly biased, since I own all of Peterson’s cds and listen to them constantly, but this is a great addition to any collection or a great way to begin discovering all this artist has to offer!
