EDITORS’ NOTES

Michael W. Smith is a Christian and mainstream pop success, and has made excursions into classical orchestration. But never have all those sides of his music blended as seamlessly as on Live the Life—as accessible, energetic, and varied a record as he has ever made. Christian listeners will appreciate “Missing Person,” a quest for childlike faith, and “I Know Your Name,” a stirring reminder of God’s promises. Meanwhile, “Love Me Good” is goofy, addictive pop, and “In My Arms Again”—written for the movie Titanic—swells with appropriate drama.

MIchael W. Smith's greatest album.

This is his best album. It is right before he went into the "worship scene" and right after he gave up on going mainstream. He was heavily influenced by his friend Rich Mullins on this album, as Live the Life comes from St. Francis. Musically it is both a combination of pop and worship. Very good album and the epitome of Smitty.

My favorite....

Once in awhile an album comes along & almost every song is great. This one is it for me. Very moving and emotional for me as my mother-in-law passed Christmas 98' and I listened to these songs a lot . Just saw Smitty a few weeks ago here in Phoenix & he's still got it.
