Somewhere Down the Road

AGrant_SomewhereDownTheRoad.jpg

Leaning more towards country-folk than contemporary worship and more towards pensive than preachy, this Christian-pop icon’s Road sounds like advice from an old friend, seasoned by life’s trials, wanderings and triumphs. “Unafraid” offers courage in the face of adversity, while “Come Into My World” suggests focusing on listening to people rather than attempting to fix them. “Overnight,” featuring Amy’s daughter, Sarah Chapman, advises patience when hopes get deferred. These tracks are classic Amy, bringing together her signature introspective lyrics and pop sensibilities. “Find What You’re Looking For” philosophically warns against being judgmental: There’s so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us. The most surprising song choice, the percussive and soulful “Third World Woman,” lays down a challenge to walk in someone else’s shoes. The album does revisit older songs like the title track and “Every Road,” but overall, this well thought out album beautifully bridges a few old favorites with smart risks that will likely pay off somewhere down the road.
