Because He Lives!!! (An awesome album for a troubled time)

I must say, like all “one offs” that artists release before their actual album, I was a bit skeptical of Because He Lives (Amen). Keywords “a bit”. The song is SO powerful, so inspiring, so thought provoking, and so worshipful that I continue to loop it on my iPhone for hours on end. Matt Maher, if you have never heard of him before this album, is a crazily gifted song writer from Newfoundland Canada. He’s released 7 studio albums including this one and has written dozens of great classics such as, ‘Your Grace Is Enough”, “White Flag”, “Turn Around”, “Hold Us Together”, “Christ is Risen” and “Lord I Need You”. Honestly, this new single just might be the greatest song he’s ever done; after singing it in church twice I’ve found no substitute for Jesus praising anthems on the radio at all. Honestly, the one song available is so good, I just might be willing to pay $12.99 for it alone. However, knowing Matt Maher and his extremely well done previous albums, I can guarantee you this work of art will be worth every cent.

Little details

Awesome to have 18 tracks. Music is lyrically thought provoking. Love Matt Maher. I was just wanting more from the opening track I wished it was a full song LONGER:(
My reason for not giving the full five stars is the mixing on this album when listening to it in my car at the same volume from track the waiting into because he lives there was a shift in volume and that was not cool for me. Only because the waiting is leading you into Because he lives at a high volume then suddenly drops volume. Not coo. I want it the same volume.
Unfortunately you can't always get what you want.


This album moves my heart!

I can’t decide which song is my favorite. Because He Lives, of course is great! Deliver, Future Not My Own, Rest, Abide with Me, Firelight, Everything is Grace… they all move my heart so much. I want to dance when I hear Borrowed Time! I love them all! Our God is AWESOME & this album reminds me of this fact!
