"For me it was a blessing. Hear how God can reshape our lives and be the Artist of our soul... it's so beatiful. Know God loves "Always" and in the finish, the Doxology, simply you can fell the glory of God through this music and Sandi's voice."
Totally awesome - every song is wonderful!

"I got this Sandi Patty CD based on the strength of the reviews I read about it on the Amazon Web site. What a great decision! I just love this CD - every song is so uplifting and inspirational. I feel like I've been in worship after listening to it. When things are tense at work, I will pop it into my CD player and put on the headphones. The music is soothing and reminds me who the Artist of my soul is, Who is molding and shaping my life, ... and the things I'm dealing with don't seem so hard to deal with anymore. This CD is different than Sandi Patty's previous anthem-heavy ones and she doesn't hit as many of her famous high notes. The music is more intimate and worshipful, though, and it's still the wonderful Sandi Patty voice you know and love - and don't worry ... she does hit some great high notes too. If you're a Sandi Patty fan, this is a "must have". If you're not, then this is a good CD for discovering her!"

"Artist of My Soul by Sandi PattyLast week, a good friend, Ms. Persis Taylor handed to me a copy of Artist of My Soul. She mistakenly picked this up instead of Finest Moments. And, I'm glad she did. For anyone unfamiliar with Sandi Patty, unfamiliar with the world revolving around the sometimes-burdensome title of Contemporary Christian Artist, you're in for a treat. Ms. Patti has a gem in Artist that is extremely difficult to describe except to those who have broader musical tastes. Her classically trained voice, together with a collection of personally reflective love-songs is quietly intense, a tempest felt just above an approving whisper. Sandi Patty is a polished performer. Period. Usually, opting to hone (hide?) her craft for her (wider) audience but, Ms. Patty doesn't seem to be resting on her laurels any longer; this album is a very intriguing statement and one, which invites a closer look into what she hopes to re-define herself as simply, Sandi Patty, Artist.There's the positive- yearning to be held- known-dreaming about never ending sunsets- that Carole King spoke so eloquently about in Tapestry, in this album. Love songs sometimes reflects a writer's infatuation with reminiscing, but sometimes it's a plea not to give up: the best is yet to come, this seems the case in "Always." ("When you're feeling down/ When you?re friends are gone/ No more sadness will find us/ We'll be together and we'll be going home/ to sing about the miracle of grace") In "You Set Me Free," she seems to have redeemed the promise ("You set me free/ to run through fields of laughter/and to sing as though/ I have no yesterdays/ You set me free/ from my befores and afters... You give me wings to fly") If Ms. Patty was in the doldrums, Artist signals her resurrection. Ms. Patty extends her hands to the faithful with "Breathe On Me," and perhaps the album's best, "You Alone." Such combinations don?t always work with everyone, but when one goes through the first 7 songs of implied and explicit spiritual commentary without sounding discordant it is a mark of a successful album. It's impossible for Sandi Patty to make a bad album and if she continues to tread new waters, she'll be in the select cadre of performers whose work is justified solely by name alone."
