Album Review

What happened to Warren Barfield? After a season of trials and setbacks that roughed him up in more ways that one, the singer/songwriter unleashed a soulful guitar-pop album, 2006's Reach, that stood in stark contrast to the guy next door charm of his self-titled debut. The disc earned him favorable reviews that compared him to the likes of John Mayer and Marc Broussard — the latter of which makes sense, given Marshall Altman manned both albums' boards. But that's as far as the soulfulness went. Somewhere between that effort and 2008's Worth Fighting For, Barfield must have had another epiphany, one that motivated him to regress to the Steven Curtis Chapman mold of his well-received but ultimately ordinary first album. Nothing wrong with sounding like Chapman — Barfield unabashedly counts him as one of his influences — but in this case it seems like a step back, especially in light of the routine production values from Charlie Peacock, Mark A. Miller, and others whose credentials are in CCM pop, not the AAA pop that Reach favored. Of late, Chapman himself has gotten hipper and more experimental — even rockier — while Worth Fighting For gives the impression Barfield is merely content with pre-Signs of Life Chapman, a countrified brand of pop/rock that's more Sawyer Brown than collegiate alt pop à la Mayer. There's one beacon of light in the form of "Love Is Not a Fight," a thoughtful power ballad that speaks against divorce — a poignant moment that's worth the price of just about the entire album. More daring, personable moves like that prove that Worth Fighting For is something of a hiccup, that there's more depth and soul to Barfield's boyish good looks than meets the eye.

Customer Reviews

I don't really get the hype...

I have been following Warren for a while, and I have a few of his songs from his other albums. While I don't think that this album is bad, I think it strays from his faster music, and leans a little closer to country in some songs. Again, not bad, but not what I was expecting.

Warren B's "Worth Fighting For"

Yay! First to review! It seems like some artists get into this mode of pleasing the crowd somewhere along the road-or they stick to what made them rise to recognition in the first place. Warren seems to have grown since the last album, and I applaud his raw honesty in what I hope to be one of many more CDs by him.

Soulful Contemporary Country Gospel - or - AWESOME!

I don't know what else to call it except AWESOME! And, everything is Gospel. If you know what it is to have a relationship with Jesus Christ aka God Almighty, the lyrics of this music will touch your heart and soul - and isn't that really what Gospel is all about? I highly recommend this CD - it's well worth the price of admission! ;)
