5.0 out of 5 stars One of his three GREAT cds Dec 10 2004
By DKDC - Published on Amazon.com
In my opinion - Larry has had many good cds worth buying. But there are three GREAT ones:

Only Visiting This Planet is possibly the best. Rock and Pop and ballads. Amazing!

Second up for pop fans - In Another Land. More pop oriented and the production sounds a bit home made at times, but still excellent.

Second place for blues and hard rock fans - Something New Under the Son. Blues and hard edged (psychadelic at times) blues. Another killer album (if you'll pardon the expression). The song "Watch What You're Doing" impressed Frank Black of the Pixies so much that he named their first album "C'mon Pilgrim" after part of the lyrics of that song. IT IS THAT GOOD!

Other cds worth buying (check out Larry's site at guess where) are Upon This Rock, So Long Ago The Garden, Home At Last, Stranded in Babylon and Tourniquet. I own all these except So Long Ago - I liked the original version better. The one available now is Larry's preference. There may be others that are good or great but I haven't heard them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest, Raw, Humble Songs About Jesus Aug. 25 2005
By A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com - Published on Amazon.com
"In Another Land" is honest, raw and humble. Larry Norman, with this album, showed he was a force to be reckoned with in Christian music.

1972's "Only Visiting the Planet" had already taken root and shook the hallowed doors of CCM. "In Another Land" took it farther, producing the seminal inspiration of musicians who happened to be Christian for over 30 years.

The difference was that these were not songs meant to be played at evangelical colleges, but to be heard outside the church. Many Christians in the early 1970s found Norman to be a welcome voice to syrupy lyrics, while others dismissed Norman as a rebel chasing fame, but doing so in the name of God.

He responds here with "Shot Down."

"They say I'm sinful, backslidden,
That I have left to follow fame.
But here I am, talkin' 'bout Jesus just the same."

Songs like "I Am A Servant" belie the commercialism of today's CCM music scene. Norman himself was not glossy, and, in fact, often appeared as if he lived closer to a homeless shelter than Hollywood or Nashville.

A signature song of Norman's, "U.F.O." talks about Jesus Christ coming soon, surprising people who were spending more time looking for men from Mars.

As rock music replaced the easier sounds of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby on the airwaves, Norman sang "The Rock That Doesn't Roll," a blues-inspired song about focusing on a more spiritual rock.

I fully recommend Larry Norman's masterpiece, "In Another Land."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rock Rolls Feb. 5 2006
By Gord Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
As many listeners know, Larry Norman virtually invented gospel rock, which has little to do with radio ccm, although reviewers often use "ccm" as a blanket term covering both. That's like saying rock has something in common with CHR (Contemporary Hits Radio), Adult Contemporary, Top 40 Pop, and other radio formats formulated specifically to exclude any and all rock, and which are taken as the de facto format standards for so-called contemporary Christian radio stations.

In Another Land was the third album of a trilogy, and the only part of it released on or through a gospel label (Word Records, then owned by ABC). The other parts of the trilogy, Only Visiting This Planet and So Long Ago the Garden were released on Verve/ MGM, so it's only in retrospect that the three albums are viewed as a trilogy. Norman's own re-releases on his Solid Rock label generally include extra tracks, singles and B-sides and alternate versions. Along with Upon This Rock, Street Level, Bootleg, and Something New Under the Son, these three albums make up Norman's seven core albums, and many songs from them have been released on various collections and covered by other artists (see my Amazon list, "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music?"). For more information about these albums see "A Beginner's Guide to Larry Norman" and the Larry Norman interview at alivingdog.com. Hopefully Amazon and Solid Rock can cut some sort of deal to offer these CDs retail, since many of them are being re-released by Solid Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still one of the best Christian albums Nov. 28 2006
By Gontroppo - Published on Amazon.com
I don't own any other Larry Norman albums ... yet. But I've always loved this one, and the remastered version available here is even better, because the sound quality is as good as it could be [and it's pretty good] and the extra tracks are fun, too.

Some of Larry's theology and eschatology is not exactly on the money, but his heart certainly is.

There are so many great tuneful songs on this album. Every time I listen to "Shot Down" lately I think it could be dedicated to Mark Driscoll, who gets a lot of stick, but keeps on "talking 'bout Jesus, just the same."

The Rock That Doesn't Roll is a great conversion song, in the tradition of "I Was Lost, But Jesus Found Me"

Righteous Rocker no 3 is Larry's modern translation of 1 Corinthians 13: I'm sure the apostle Paul would have approved

Every time I hear Look Into Jesus, I get chills, thinking about the wonder of new life in Christ and the loneliness of life without him

I Am A Servant is a great song for singing when seeking to live wholeheartedly for Christ.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest, Raw, Humble Songs About Jesus - Folk Rock At Its Spiritual Best June 20 2006
By A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com - Published on Amazon.com
"In Another Land" is honest, raw and humble. Larry Norman, with this album, showed he was a force to be reckoned with in Christian music.

1972's "Only Visiting the Planet" had already taken root and shook the hallowed doors of CCM. "In Another Land" took it farther, producing the seminal inspiration of musicians who happened to be Christian for over 30 years. Now, as his songs are remade by everyone from DC Talk to Grammatrain to Steve Camp, it is worth looking at the originals. They survive well as rock-folk songs.

The difference was that these were not songs meant to be played at evangelical colleges, but to be heard outside the church. Many Christians in the early 1970s found Norman to be a welcome voice to syrupy lyrics, while others dismissed Norman as a rebel chasing fame, but doing so in the name of God.

He responds here with "Shot Down."

"They say I'm sinful, backslidden,
That I have left to follow fame.
But here I am, talkin' 'bout Jesus just the same."

Songs like "I Am A Servant" belie the commercialism of today's CCM music scene. Norman himself was not glossy, and, in fact, often appeared as if he lived closer to a homeless shelter than Hollywood or Nashville.

A signature song of Norman's, "U.F.O." ("He's an unidentified flying object") talks about Jesus Christ coming soon, surprising people who were spending more time looking for men from Mars.

As rock music replaced the easier sounds of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby on the airwaves, Norman sang "The Rock That Doesn't Roll," a blues-inspired song about focusing on a more spiritual rock.

The complete songlist:
* Tuning (a brief mix of Larry and the band tuning their instruments)
* The Rock That Doesn't Roll
* Top 40 Survey / Radio Airplay (blending into UFO, Larry works through the AM radio, hearing clips of news and music of the era)
* U.F.O.
* I've Searched All Around The World
* Shot Down
* Song For A Small Circle Of Friends (he appeals to friends Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and others to consider Christ)
* The Sun Began To Rain
* Looking For The Footprints
* Six Sixty Six
* Righteous Rocker #3
* If God Is My Father
* Why Don't You Look Into Jesus
* Diamond
* One Way
* I Am A Servant
* Hymn To The Last Generation
* Strong Love, Strange Peace (bonus, not on original LP release)
* I Love You (bonus, not on original LP release)

I fully recommend Larry Norman's masterpiece, "In Another Land."
