Amazing talent, powerful poetry

"I have every one of his albums, I admit. But if you can only buy one or two, you should probably start with this one. The songs are so powerful and true. This is the album that has meant the most to me out of all of them...I made it through some difficult times singing in tears to, "Bound to Come Some Trouble." "Hope to Carry On" still picks me up everytime I listen. This music has a way of touching you where you hurt and helping you heal. I don't know of another artist who does this without resorting to cliches or sickening sweetness. These songs remind me of God's love and truth that will always sustain. What means a lot to me is that Rich didn't cover up poor musical abilities with "God-lyrics." He combined amazing talent and skill with powerful poetry and gave us beauty."
As good as any of them

"Rich Mullins' music grew out of a heart that earnestly sought to be God's. Rich saw them largely as Christian entertainment. Yet as Jesus said, we know a tree by its fruit--and much fruit has come from the music of this remarkable man. Never Picture Perfect contains some of Rich's greatest songs. "First Family" was a song Rich wrote for his Mom and Dad on their anniversary. If it does not move you, nothing will. "The Love of God" is possibly the greatest song Rich ever wrote. "Somewhere" and "Bound to Come Some Trouble" are also up there in the pantheon of Rich's songs. Rich Mullins made some remarkable CDs in his time. Never Picture Perfect is as good as any of them. The greatest thing I can think to say about Rich or this disc is that he, like his parents, "worked to give faith hands and feet--and somehow gave it wings.""
