This CD is filled with original splendor, words of praise, and a definite commitment to advancing the grace of Jesus Christ for the blessed listener. I bought this CD because I could never hear “I Can’t Do This” enough when it was played on our local Christian radio station. I was hoping the rest of the CD would be just as good. I was not disappointed.
Let’s take a look at what PUMB has to offer:
Track #1 BLUSH – Talk about a song that any husband would love to have dedicated to him…this is it. What makes this song so amazing is PLUMB’s beautiful voice on the chorus parts. When we first love God, we are able to love our significant other with that unbelievable love Hollywood spends billions to recreate on the silver screen. This kind of love causes humans to blush with purity and commitment.
Track #2 I CAN’T DO THIS – This is a song that sounds like Evanescence gone Gospel! I absolutely love this song, the music behind the vocals, the message, and PLUMB’s ability to create such a powerful tune. Have I mentioned I really like this song?
Track #3 REAL LIFE FAIRY TALE – Can life really be like a fairy tale? I believe it can be. When people love from the top down and the bottom up, we experience amazing happiness and joy – a joy that seems unexplainable. Happy endings do happen – this song is about that possibility and that reality.
Track #4 BETTER – Evanescence with Jesus returns…I’m only joking, PLUMB, so please don’t be angry. Wow, I believe this song is about overcoming evil with good and the Jesus-character such battles can buildup in our hearts. This CD is turning out to be homerun after homerun…good thing for me, since I purchased it!
Track #5 MANIC – The first confusing song on the CD, but even it has that spiritual tug-o-war between good and evil feel to it. There’s just no stopping PLUMB’s ability to compile great music on a CD!
Track #6 CUT – All I can tell you is this – just hearing PLUMB sing “I AM NOT ALONE” out loud the way she does in this song was worth the entire cost of the CD! What a fantastic voice!!!!!!!!!
Track #7 BITTERSWEET – Great start, unique style, and there is just no guessing where this song is going to go as you listen to it. It is indeed a great thing to have the power of grace pour over you – and this song is about that feeling of love we feel when we embrace the greatest love of all…
Track #8 GOOD BEHAVIOR – I have to admit, I have no idea where this song is coming from or going to, but it is catchy and exciting. So PLUMB is still riding a perfect wave on this CD.
Track # 9 MOTION – PLUMB has morphed into Lindsay Lohan and created the perfect dance song! Seriously, I could really see me dancing to this tune…as long as no one could see…
Track # 10 I HAVE NOTHING – A rocking good tune that accurately describes the way we come into this world and the way we leave it. Without the salvation God has brought us, we truly have not a thing. Good rock song and message and addition to this spectacular CD!
Track # 11 JEKYLL & HYDE – “You remind me of a cigarette”…not quite sure even a Saturday Night Live skit would start off a song spoof with such an amazing stretch of the imagination. Quite frankly, this is the only song that didn’t cause me to celebrate my amazing purchase. This is the only song on the CD I have ever skipped over.
Track # 12 SLEEP – Anyone who cannot relate to this song has led a sheltered life. Everyone has a day where they just aren’t sure they want to get out of bed in the morning. This song is about our dazed and confused (without drugs) times in life. Nice pace to this song. It’s like PLUMB is just telling us a story with a little bit of background music. Another homerun!!!!
#13 DAMAGED – Freaky start to this one. This is also one of those songs that seems so original and unique it is hard to explain. We are all damaged – and this song reminds me that no matter how hard we try, we cannot rely on anything than the forgiveness Jesus has brought us! We can never make ourselves undamaged with our own works.
#14 PRAY FOR ME – Fast-paced reminder of what we need to do for each other. Pray for me…and I need to pray for you…and so the story goes. Man, I love this song!
Before I finish this review, I must point out that I wish I had more time and space to continue on about how good this CD is, but I don’t. So, please consider that I could write for another 24 hours about what a pleasure this CD has been in my life. Add it to your CD collection – you won’t be sorry!
See ya next review!
