This is a great CD! I got this at an Avalon concert when they performed at a local baseball stadium. Excellent playback

CD Reviews

My favorite Avalon release -- it lives in my CD changer!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Avalon is Michael Passons, Jody McBrayer, Janna Potter and new soprano Cherie Paliotta (former soprano Nikki Hassman departed the group with a Sony general market deal). "In A Different Light" is Avalon's third release; its first with Paliotta. One of the most enjoyable things about listening to Avalon is the unusual beauty of each individual's voice; together their talents are gorgeous and compelling. "In A Different Light", with producer Brown Bannister at the helm, is great contemporary pop music filled with the messages of God's love and mercy.In the 14 months since the release of "A Maze of Grace", the group has grown individually and collectively. The excellent yet uneven "Maze" has been replaced with a polished cohesiveness evidenced in energetic yet mature vocal performances, even more impressive considering the incorporation of Paliotta. My favorite cuts: "Can't Live A Day", a power ballad of living faith that showcases the underappreciated Janna Potter, and "If My People Pray", a tightly produced pop anthem testifying to the power of prayer and the overflowing grace of God. Another song, "First Love", is an honest introspective questioning our failures to keep God first with the distractions of daily life. Despite my apparent emphasis on their voices, Avalon's faithfulness to their calling to touch others in the name of the Lord is immediately apparent in every note of every song. "In A Different Light" is some of the most listenable inspiration you'll ever hear."
Most spirtually mature with the best music Avalon CD yet!

"When I first heard that this CD was coming out, back in July, I remember thinking, "There is no way they could top their last one," but Avalon has gone and amazed me again. This release is my favorite for various reasons. Their words are so intensely honest, and their Euro Pop sound sets them apart from any other artist on the Christian music scene, but I'd really like to concetrate on their lyrics. It's obvious that Avalon spent a large amount of time in prayer over these songs. The words are not sugar-coated like lots of Christian songs are becoming, but rather they expose the bare truth, that we are supposed to be "In the World Not of It," and that we "Can't Live a Day" without Him, and when we lose our "First Love" we can "Hide Our(My) Soul" in Jesus.With Brown Bannister in charge this group's music has soared to new heights. Avalon's harmony is very tight, and all four of their soulful, yet uniquely diverse, voices are incredably powerful on their solos.Come take on this challenge with Avalon to view life "In a Different Light.""
