iTunes Review

It’s no accident that 1988’s I 2 (Eye) became Michael W. Smith’s first gold-certified album. This well-balanced collection of ballads and uptempo tracks reflects his desire to reach beyond the confines of the Christian music world. The songs here (co-written with Wayne Kirkpatrick) speak knowingly of the choices believers face in everyday situations. Sonically, much of I 2 (Eye) is an amalgamation of various ‘80s pop/rock styles, ending up somewhere between REO Speedwagon and George Michael. A touch of synthesizer-draped moodiness adds texture to “Ashton” and “Secret Ambition.” Smitty’s genial yet serious demeanor serves him well, whether he’s gliding along with a sparkling track like “The Throne” or delivering an affecting number like “I Hear Leesha.” I 2 (Eye)’s highly accessible sound provided a template for even more successful releases in the following decade. The album remains one of Smith’s most engaging efforts.

That support group split up after high school, and Smith turned to alcohol, drugs, and wild...
