Good-but not tops for Phil
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Phil is awesome--maybe the best guitar player ever. This album, however, is well crafted and performed pop--nothing wrong with that, but I don't find myself going back to it often--and his guitar work is very understated. That shows how amazingly ego-less this guy is, but doesn't address the needs of my jones : ). For his albums with bands and lyrics (how many artists do you have to make that distinction about?), I like Crimson & Blue and Find Me In These Fields better."
What a find!

"I just got home from a Phil Keaggy concert and was blown away by his talent and guitar virtuosity. Every word I think of to describe him seems like an understatement. His CDs can never replicate what you see and hear live. But once you've seen him in concert, it makes experience of listening to the CDs that much richer. I would recommend this CD, especially if you are new to Phil's work, although I can't say it's better than his others (they are all so good!). "Premium Jams" - a new release - is a must-have if you enjoy his rockin' electric guitar style."
Very Versatile Phil does it again

"From the opening cut to the last few notes this CD treats the listener to some of Phil Keaggy's best songwriting in years!! Phil has a well deserved reputation throughout the music world as one of the best living guitar players. However, his vocal music has never received as much attention. This CD is a great place to start mending that fence. This is not a rockin' Phil album. Instead, the song is the thing here. And there are several jewels on this album. From the great groove of 'A Sign Came Through the Window', to the Celtic influence on 'Above All Things', to the tenderness of 'Quite Suddenly', Phil covers a wide variety styles on this album. Phil's vocals have never been better, and the quality of the lyrics are the best on any of Phil's albums in recent memory. Personally, I feel this is one of Phils best vocal albums, right up there with 'Find Me in These Fields' and 'Crimson and Blue'. The disc demands repeated listenings to really sink in, so pick it up...put it on....and enjoy!!!"
