Still Wonderful After All These Years

"Isn't it funny how some songs come to represent a time in our lives? For me, this entire CD always brings back memories of summer 1994. I bought the CD in May of that year and listened to it almost non-stop going to and from my summer job. To this day, every time I stick it in, I'm transported back to that summer.Fortunately, that was a good summer because I still love this CD. Susan Ashton had a way of picking songs that spoke directly to me and still seem to do so.The CD opens with the only song she co-wrote, the wonderful "Here in My Heart" reminding us that God is patiently waiting for us no matter what is happening in our lives. "Grand Canyon" was another classic from this album that made an analogy about the distance that can seem to develop between us and God. A personal favorite is the tug of war captured so eloquently in "Innocence Lost." The power of gossip is tackled in "Started as a Whisper." Susan Ashton loved to pick songs with literary illusions in the title and that continued on this CD with "Alice in Wonderland," talking about facing the difficulties in life even if we don't want to. "Walk on by" is a fun warning about giving into temptation. And I always loved the closing ballad "Let Me Go."Even after 10 years, I still pull this CD out on a regular basis, and the songs seem as fresh now as they did then. While I love Susan's other CD's, this is still my favorite. A definite classic of Christian music from the early 90's."
Bigger beat for Ashton's sophomore CD

"Although it won't be mistaken for rock, Ashton adds some new flavour to her sonics this time out, letting electric guitar play a bigger part than on her debut. It also landed 4 chart hits with "Here in My Heart" (#3),"Grand Canyon"(#17),"Hunger and Thirst"(#20), and "Walk on By" (#6).
Best cuts this time out are pop-rocker "Here in my Heart" (covered by country singer Martina McBride on the "Evolution" album, ASIN:B000002X49), the "God big, us small" ballad "Grand Canyon" (covered later by country singer Kathy Mattea on her "Walking Away a Winner" CD, ASIN:B000001E2L), the scathing diatribe against holier than thou types of "Started with a Whisper", world-weary lament "When are You Coming Back?", acceptance that life isn't clearcut even when you walk with Jesus (the Billy Sprague co-penned "Alice in Wonderland") and the dark side of growing older. ("Innocence Lost")
The only weak tune on here is "Let me Go", which is pleasant but not really memorable.
A big step forward for Ashton......."
