Editors’ Notes

The success of the inspirational movie Fireproof has raised the profile of John Waller, thanks to the placement of his tune “While I’m Waiting” in the film. The track (first heard on his debut album The Blessing) provides the title for his 2009 sophomore release. Waller’s slow-burning vocal style and Average Guy demeanor give his prayerful lyrics the feel of personal confessions. Songs like “Faith Is Living,” “Quest,” and “Dead Man Walking” come across as both declarations of faith and acts of soul-searching. As a songwriter, Waller draws heavily upon Biblical themes and imagery throughout the album, whether he is recounting Christ’s crucifixion (“Of All the Places”) or meditating upon spiritual contentment (“Perfect Peace).” While I’m Waiting is mostly a tastefully-arranged midtempo affair, though “Quest” spices things up with some astringent guitar riffage and “Our God Reins Here” aims for a brawny arena-rock sound. The title song — heard here in two versions — remains an eloquent invocation of a believer’s walk with Christ.

Customer Reviews

He did it again!

From the title song, to "Our God Reigns Here" and "House of God", Waller shows the power of his music lies in his songs of declaration. Another incredible compilation that breaks from vanilla contemporary Christian style. A must-have album from an artist who is poised for a breakout.

Powerful, authentic and just great music!

This is easily one of the best albums I have heard in a long time and I listen to a lot of music! Lyrically, it is deep, authentic and personal. It is spiritually uplifting, healing and energizing at the same time. That's pretty hard for an artist to do. Musically, it is off the charts good. Of course the song While I'm Waiting has already had a huge influence on many lives and marriages in the movie Fireproof. But don't think this is a one song album. Many of these songs could become big radio hits and others could be anthems of victory that believers will use for many years. Make sure you have time to listen to the whole thing when you first start. It will be hard to quit!

John Waller is Amazing!!!!!

John Waller first found the spotlight as the leader of the late ‘90s Matchbox 20-esque Christian alternative rock band According to John. After going solo, he released THE BLESSING, which smoothed out the rough edges of his former band’s sound, turning down the guitars and refining his melodic pop sense. His second album, WHILE I’M WAITING, benefited from even slicker production and focused more explicitly on themes of praise and worship, drawing comparisons to the shiny CCM of Steven Curtis...
