iTunes Review

After 30-plus years in Christian music, Randy Stonehill took a loving look backwards on 2002’s Edge of the World. In the early ‘70s, Stonehill and mentor Larry Norman pioneered what was then called Jesus Music. He explicitly evokes those exciting days in “We Were All So Young,” a nostalgic singalong featuring guest vocals by Norman, Phil Keaggy, Barry McGuire and other old-timers. But this album is as much about contemporary struggles as cherished memories. Stonehill’s persona as a fallible but always-striving believer is expressed with poignancy and humor in “That’s the Way It Goes” and the album’s stirring closer, “Prisoner of Hope.” “Jayney” offers consolation in times of need, while “Take Me Back” (a duet with Christian thrush Sara Groves) describes a family reconciliation. The sweetness of tunes like “Last Song for Michael” gets some balance from the title track, a brooding Delta blues-style number. The album is mostly acoustic-based, with Randy’s folk-rooted guitar and Baron Miller’s tangy drum work defining the sound.

Customer Reviews

A Grandfather of Christian Rock

Props to Randy for producing an album over 30 years after his first. This guy followed up on Larry Norman as one of the founders of Christian rock and this album is peaceful and clear in its message. Props too for not watering down the Message over time. "Hey Pauline" is phenomenal. "Dare to Believe" hits home for me because what it says is what I have begun to experience at the core of the practical excercise of Gospel faith after many years of spiritual struggles and battle after battle.

a True Pioneer of Jesus Music...still going strong!

Larry Norman introduced Randy Stonehill to Jesus. Randy Stonehill introduced Keith Green to Jesus. Keith Green introduced a sleeping church to Jesus. Thank God for Larry Norman. Thank God for Keith Green...and thank God for Randy Stonehill. "Edge of the World" is Randy Stonehill coming full-circle in every way. It doesn't get better than this one. This record is a must-buy!

Edge of the World

This effort from Randy is brilliant. Even after all these years in music, his song writing and voice sound every bit as good as his early 70's material. One of the things I like about this album is that it's not overly produced. It's not trying to be hip or current, but it's not overly stark or barren either - it's just right. Actually, I think I like this album better than anything since Welcome to Paradise and The Sky is Falling. You won't regret purchasing this album.
