While carefully and passionately crafted art is highly sought after by this reviewer and music lover, there has to be more, much more to make it special. Music to be lasting and to truly take root must have something deeper. The music by itself or the music with vocals must speak to a longing or a need within me, acknowledged or suppressed.
The music that touches me the deepest is that which speaks of longing, seeking and most important: the revealing and unraveling of one broken life to another.
Hey, we're all a mess and need help from each other and from God. We can't go through this alone; we need the light cast dimly from one another to see the path before us and guide us to the true light.
