"Saying Grace", Geoff Moore - CD Review
As it is with many singers/songwriters, our inspiration comes from the journeys we walk in life. Never has this been truer for 25 year Compassion advocate, Grammy Nominated and Dove Award Winning artist - Geoff Moore. After a 4 year hiatus from recording, Moore is back with a new album, Saying Grace. From the beginning this album will embrace the listeners’ heart with Moore's familiar storytelling way and raw melodic tones.
The album opens with a song entitled "Believe". It begins as a reflective piece which continuously builds instrumentally throughout the song. The message of the song will offer hope and assurance to all who at one time or another are faced with struggles and trials in life. Easily an anthem song for this album.
The title track "Saying Grace" gives the feeling as though you're sitting down with the family for a time of prayer. This song has a slight country feel with harmonies and mandolin playing in the background throughout. "The Wonder of Kindness" is another track with a country feel. Pure harmonies, tight acoustic work, tambourines and mandolin give this song a reflective feel. With words like "The wonder of Your kindness is something I can't earn," reminds the listener of God's great love for his children.
"Overwhelming Love" - a favorite of mine on this album. With lyrics that tear at your heart such as, "Let us be ruined by your overwhelming love", and "if we could see just one glimpse of who you are than we would be undone". The song styling is driven by a contemporary rock beat with great guitar work throughout. This song truly speaks the heart of Moore when he states, "'Saying Grace' is an album about thankfulness. The last few years God has let me walk some hard roads with people I love. These songs were born of those journeys. My prayer is that they will be good traveling companions. I wrote them to encourage all our hearts that we are loved, and cared for. That on our best, or hardest, days we would be overwhelmed by God's great love for us."
Saying Grace released in August 2011. Certainly an album I would highly recommend.
