EDITORS’ NOTES

By the early ’90s, Michael W. Smith had already released a clutch of CCM ballads that shimmer like gemstones. I’ll Lead You Home, from 1995, also delivers the goods, especially the gospel-kissed title cut that yearns for the promised land. But it’s also clear that Smith is bucking expectations: Both “Breakdown,” a moody political number that rides tight funk rock, and “A Little Stronger Everyday,” an inspirational with finger-snapping beats echoing Paul Simon, upend his reputation as a pop balladeer.

A great listen

Smitty has recently gone back to leading worship and producing worship albums, which is great, but this album (along with all of his albums in the 80's and 90's) shows off his talent more than anything he's done of late. I would highly recommend this album to anyone. A great listen.

His Very Best

I grew up listening to this album every time we got in the car, and I never got sick of it. This MWS at his pinnacle. My favorite is Cry for Love, but I always listen to the album straight through.

The best and most amazing album by Michael W. Smith!

I have loved this album since the moment I bought the CD which I got right after it was released in 1995. It is the best album Smitty has done to date, in my opinion!!! The music is great, and the lyrics are simply amazing. I cannot get enough of it! I should also mention, it says a lot when I like every single song on an album because that is so rare, but I absolutely love every song on this album from start to finish. You will not be disappointed at all should you decide to buy this album!
