5.0 out of 5 stars The Love of God Jan. 18 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Somewhere amidst these ins and these outs, there's a fine line of purpose I follow even now. Through the haze of despair that confuses and hurts us I look to see that You're there; and I run toward Your light "... Rich Mullins sings these lines on the song "Somewhere," which is the tenth track on this remarkable recording. Each song on this disc expresses some aspect of God's light shining down upon us in our everyday lives.
I'll be right up front and tell you that I love all of Rich Mullins' CDs. He is my favorite singer/songwriter type of guy. Now that we've established that fact, let me tell you why you should get a copy of this album...
The songs. Never Picture Perfect is FILLED with good songs. From the opening rendition of the hymn "I Will Sing" to the reprise of "Love the of God" Each of these songs are individually worthy of multiple-nay, repeated listenings (although "The Book of Love" really, really, doesn't fit in sonically). Besides the afore mentioned "Somewhere," three songs really strike me as being particularly great.
The first is "Hope to Carry On." It describes the change that the Love of God brings about in the world. As Rich says in the song: "Love could make a beggar rich, He could set a prisoner free. I know He could do it for you-God knows He did it for me." The most moving part of the song for me is when Rich talks about love causing Peter to put away his sword. This strikes a cord in my life because I am the kind of person who is all too often ready to go to war over every little thing...Yet Jesus has called us to something much higher. Or, as Rich so skillfully notes: "Love has come-and He's given me hope to carry on.

5.0 out of 5 stars as good as any of them April 16 2002
Format:Audio CD
Rich Mullins' music grew out of a heart that earnestly sought to be God's. Rich saw them largely as Christian entertainment. Yet as Jesus said, we know a tree by its fruit--and much fruit has come from the music of this remarkable man. Never Picture Perfect contains some of Rich's greatest songs. "First Family" was a song Rich wrote for his Mom and Dad on their anniversary. If it does not move you, nothing will. "The Love of God" is possibly the greatest song Rich ever wrote. "Somewhere" and "Bound to Come Some Trouble" are also up there in the pantheon of Rich's songs. Rich Mullins made some remarkable CDs in his time. Never Picture Perfect is as good as any of them. The greatest thing I can think to say about Rich or this disc is that he, like his parents, "worked to give faith hands and feet--and somehow gave it wings."

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing talent, powerful poetry Aug. 23 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have every one of his albums, I admit. But if you can only buy one or two, you should probably start with this one. The songs are so powerful and true.
This is the album that has meant the most to me out of all of them...I made it through some difficult times singing in tears to, "Bound to Come Some Trouble." "Hope to Carry On" still picks me up everytime I listen. This music has a way of touching you where you hurt and helping you heal. I don't know of another artist who does this without resorting to cliches or sickening sweetness. These songs remind me of God's love and truth that will always sustain.
What means a lot to me is that Rich didn't cover up poor musical abilities with "God-lyrics." He combined amazing talent and skill with powerful poetry and gave us beauty.
