iTunes Review

A work of unusual subtlety and spiritual power, Audrey Assad’s third album is a departure from the pop/rock approach of her previous releases. The Christian singer/songwriter funded her latest project through Kickstarter with the goal of creating a worship song-cycle for the modern Church. She succeeds brilliantly with contemplative lyrics that seem both deeply personal and timeless in their stately, yearning language. Musically, much of Fortunate Fall has a liturgical feel, framing meditative melodies in simple, finely detailed arrangements. Assad’s silvery vocal tones combine vulnerability with inner strength as she examines the theme of man’s struggle for redemption in a sinful world. She draws joy from melancholy in such poignant tracks as “Help My Unbelief,” “I Shall Not Want," and “Humble.” The quiet, almost medieval grandeur of “O Happy Fault” contrasts with the coffeehouse-folk feel of “Lead Me On” and the bright waltz-time rhythm of “Good for Me.” “You Speak” closes the album with an intimate declaration of belief. Throughout, Assad sings out with gratitude even as she acknowledges the mysteries of faith.

Customer Reviews

Her Best To Date

I was a proud backer of the Kickstarter campaign that funded this release, and I'm so glad it came to fruition. This album is an incredibly prayerful that I have rarely experienced with music. I won't write a track by track review, but suffice it to say that I could talk about it for hours. It's that good. Fans of Audrey's pop style will not find pop here, but will be well compensated with a rich,stunning musical tapestry of faith and trust in Jesus. Pay attention, corporate worship record execs: this is what Christian music REALLY sounds like.

Peaceful and spirit filled

There are only two artists I will purchase music from without first previewing the album and Audrey is one of them - this album does not disappoint. The music is soulful and peaceful, thoughtful and uplifting. Absolutely stunning work of art and a pleasure to listen to while doing bible study. Praise God for gracing you with such an amazing talent, Audrey. Blessings upon you.

Yearnings for holiness and God’s presence

Audrey puts her full passion behind everything she sings, and is an avid reader of Scripture and other faith-based influences, which makes her lyrics even more rooted in Truth. I agree with, and say Amen to every single note of every song on Fortunate Fall. These are great songs to pray along with Audrey and express your own yearnings for holiness and God’s presence. All of the songs on Fortunate Fall are a wonderful companion in my personal prayer and devotion time. “Lead Me On,” “I Shall Not Want” and the single “Good to Me” are among my favorite songs this year, and this is a very soothing album that leads me to the Throne Room of Grace.

Assad continued to hone her craft, writing songs for other performers and touring with Dove Award-winning...
