There's a beauty to the rawness of Rebecca St. James. While her contemporaries in the Christian market ply their formulaic-sounding wares, St. James continues to go where few artists, if any, have gone before. On Pray, her fourth album, the young Australian singer meshes Euro-industrial with charismatic Christian for a mind-bending (if not soul-bending) experience. Producer Tedd T. offers the right blend of programming, melodic rock, and St. James's powerful vocals on the opening title track as well as the brilliant "Come Quickly Lord" and "Peace." While the covers of Rich Mullins's "Hold Me Jesus" and Keith Green's "Lord You're Beautiful" provide new treatments to old standards, it is the numbers penned by St. James and Tedd T. that stand out. Don't miss the haunting final number, "Omega," or the mystery track beyond. --Michael Lyttle

"I did not used to be a big fan of her music. Pray changed all that.Her music is stunning, life changing, tear jerking, and thrilling.Who can sing lyrics better then their author? RSJ created a brilliant CD with brilliant music.Pray is faultless. the type of song that makes you fall on your knees and think of Jesus, all he's done, and how he can change you.The song Give Myself Away is similar. I cried listening to it. It has a big beat, and a big message. I love this song. I'll Carry You always brings tears to my eyes. I think about all the struggles I've had in my life, and how my family, and Jesus lifted me up, and this song is a perfect expression of agape love, unending love for someone and that willingness to help someone.Peace blew me off my feet. This song rocked me for quite some time. The words "Be Still and Know, You Are God" are rather soothing. In a way, this is the best song on the CD. It mixes rock and that stuff I call perfect words and makes an incredible blend.This CD has to be one of the best I've ever heard. Along with Michelle Tumes, this CD is top five on my list. I am not a rock girl. But this CD is not Rock. IT IS PURE WORSHIP TO JESUS CHRIST! Thank-you. Now, buy this CD. Maybe it will change your life. Maybe it will strengthen your relationship with Jesus. Or maybe it will just fill you with the urge to go outside and. . . pray."
The best Contemporary Christian CD ever made?

"This latest CD by Rebecca St James is full of Christian commitment and Spiritual encouragement - along with some dazzling music tracks and RSJ's absolutely superb vocal ability. I actually consider this album to be one of best music CD's (of any kind) that I ever heard. The music is fast (- 'very fast' by Christian music norm) but the message is strong, pure, and wonderful. The love and commitment for Jesus Christ that Rebecca St.James expresses on this album are so palpable, I often have tears welling up in my eyes when I listen to her songs. (And I have listened to this album many, many, many times. )"
