The remarkable maturity of Jaci Velasquez's voice, so well displayed on her 1996 debut release, continues on this self-titled second offering. Here, the prodigious 19-year-old rising star has recorded pop gems by the likes of Chris Eaton, producer Mark Heimermann, singer/songwriter deluxe Michelle Tumes, and DC Talk's Toby McKeehan. "God So Loved the World," "You," "Look What Love Has Done," and "Sweet Surrender" are all magnificent examples of topflight writing, production, and singing. Velasquez even shows a gritty side on "Child of Mine" and "Show You Love," revealing a raw power beyond her more tempered efforts. No doubt Miss Velasquez has raised the bar with this outstanding release, widely believed to have helped her win the 1999 Dove Award for best female vocalist. --Michael Lyttle

I would say that this CD is very relaxing.
The songs go together so well. This is one CD that I like to just sit back and listen to the whole thing.
The whole album is great. :)

Jaci's best yet (as of October 2001)

"The opening song is the wonderfully melodic God so loved, and the final tune is the spanish version. In-between, this is a masterpiece. God so loved-as aboveShow you love- an upbeat and cheerful pop tune, Little Voice inside-steady rhythm and good vocals make this a terrific songYou- Good piano and violin accompanimentLook what love has done-pop ballad with great lyricsChild of mine- A pop-rock song; powerful vocals by Jaci; percussion-drivenSpeak to me-slow, driving rhythm and good vocalsGlory- the worst song on this album, but that's not a huge insult. It is a bit boringSweet surrender- Same as 'speak to me'; good lyricsPaper tigers-Great percussion; see aboveMade my world- same as 'show you love'Al mundo Dios amo- spanish version of 'God so loved'"
Making a name for itself

"No sophomore slump here, as Jaci Velasquez actually improves upon her excellent debut CD with this effort. Possibly the most beautiful song I've ever heard is contained on this disc: "God So Loved". Some of the CD's best moments are in its rousing, upbeat tracks like "Show You Love", "Made My World" and "Glory". Other highlights are the simple but majestic "You", and "Paper Tigers", which plays like a lullaby. A Spanish version of "God So Loved" that closes the album hints at her burgeoning Latin career. For an album with no name, this one sure makes a name for itself."
