Don't look for the patented sophomore slump on This Mystery, Nichole Nordeman's second studio release, because the bright young songwriter builds on the momentum she established with her pleasing 1998 debut, Wide Eyed. Mystery contains a basketful of midtempo, self-reflective songs, painting the portrait of a young artist struggling with faith. At times the lines of both are blurred, and Nordeman deals with this frankly in tunes such as "Fool for You" and the title track. The moving, contemplative "Small Enough" is one of the release's finest songwriting moments, while the uptempo "Home" also shines brightly. Like her Heaven & Earth colleagues Michelle Tumes and Jennifer Knapp, Nordeman is part of a growing group of female songwriters in contemporary Christian music who have a lot to say and know just how to say it. --Michael Lyttle

Not one of my favorite releases from Nichole, but defiantly a good one.

This was the first CD I ever bought with my own money (I was in middle school at the time). I still love this CD, and Nichole Nordeman, and would highly recommend this album to everyone.
Nichole Nordeman is incredible!

"If I could give this cd or any of Nichole's music more than 5 stars I would. I've never listened to such annointed music. I am 24 and there are so many of her songs that have deeply ministered to me and my church family. Highly recommended!"
Great soothing vocals with insightful, poetic, dense lyrics

"Nichole is probably my favorite Christian female artist.
She does remind me of a sarah maclachlan vocally, albeit with a lighter and more delicate tone. And of course the organic piano playing sounds similar.
Nichole's lyrics and writing skills are what set her apart from most of her peers. you really do have to take the time to listen to her songs. none of the songs have heavy overhanded production so that words always come through clearly. She writes about personal struggles, from a humanist point of view.
This CD, along with Wide Eyed and Woven and Spun are purchases that you won't regret, whether you are a Christian or not."
