Great collection of songs from a great songwriter. Never heard of Charlie before, this is a great way of getting introduced to his music. Stand out tracks are "Personal Revolution" "Down in the Lowlands" and "One man gets around."
The Enigma of Charlie Peacock
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you surfed into this site then you did so most likely on purpose. You have already heard of Charlie and everthing on his mind. The enigma or mystery is why just you and I know about him. You already know that Charlie Peacock is probably the most unique and gifted songwriter of this age, yet very few have even heard of him or his music. You know that his music is so cutting edge that his musical stylings predated and predicted the Minneapolis sound made popular by Prince in the 80s and the alternapop sound of so many bands that we hear in the 90s. His lyrics are thoughtful and intelligent. His songcraft is impeccable and is reminiscent of Sting drawing on many musical styles and influences. First and foremost his music centers on the human existence and "the thirst to be made whole". He is as close as this generation will ever get to C.S. Lewis. Charlie's music is proof that "Christian" music can be creative, different, thought provoking, evangelical, yet not filled with formula, cliches, and victory speeches. His music bears witness to authentic Christianity. This "best of" compilation is a good introduction for anyone who has ears to hear."
Talk about Talent!

"Charlie Peacock is musically awesome, and produces many well known artists. In the Light was a #1 hit twice. First by Charlie then by DC Talk. This is a great album although I would have chose other songs to have put on a 'best of' collection. 'Love Life' the great discontinued album should be in production again! I'd buy it!"
