CD REVIEW: Sue Valentine - Strengthen My Heart
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Sue Valentine
Genre: Christian
CD Review:
The first thing that hits you with this album, without knowing the subject matter, is how positive it is. Not only the titles ('Strengthen My Heart By Grace', 'The Spirit and the Bride Say, "Come!"', 'Rejoice Over Me'), not even lyrics of 'call the new thing i'm bringing forth / name the new thing giving birth / speak the liberty you're waiting for / call out the power of the lord' from 'Call the New Thing', but the way it's all presented. The vocals are so clear and enunciated it's nearly the equivalent of seeing your reflection in a still mountain river. Acoustic, with varying rhythms and backing vocals, I will call it positive again. So much so that it should be marketed to children, since it feels fresh like a wet green salad and would be a pretty good role model for up and coming britches of faith.
