5.0 out of 5 stars The most emotion ever from Anne ! May 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is without doubt the best Anne Murray recording ever. What a comeback. This tasteful, inspiring album is filled with lots of emotion and will make your spirits soar ! The opening cut, "Lord I hope this day is Good" provides but a glimpse of what is to come. Her powerful performances on "Amazing Grace", "Let it Be", "Put a little Love in your Heart", "The Lord's Prayer", "I Believe in You" and "I can see Clearly Now" among others, leaves no doubt as to why this album went #4 Country, #38 Pop, and #1 Contemporary Christan on the Billboard Charts, having sold well over 1 million copies. Treat yourself-buy it today !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational songs suit Anne well March 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many of these songs will be familiar to you via other versions, though there are a few exceptions, most notably Elijah, written by Gene MacLellan. Anne has recorded several of his songs, most notably Snowbird.
This is not a gospel album, though there are a lot of gospel songs here. Amazing grace, Peace in the valley, The old rugged cross, In the garden, Whispering hope and How great thou art can all be found on plenty of gospel albums.
Lord I hope this day is good was first recorded by Don Williams, who took it to the top of the country charts. Lee Ann Womack has also covered it.
Bridge over troubled water is, of course, a classic song, first recorded by Simon and Garfunkel, which also appeared on LeAnn Rimes' inspirational album. It seems destined to appear on many similar albums. Anne doesn't add anything new to the song, but I was pleased to see it included here.
Other covers include Lean on me (Bill Withers), Let it be (Beatles), What a wonderful world (Louis Armstrong), I can see clearly now (Johnny Nash), You've got a friend (James Taylor) and Put a little love in your heart (Jackie De Shannon).
Anne is in fine voice throughout, and anybody familiar with Anne's music will know what to expect - and get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! - Or Should I Say Wonderful? Nov. 28 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first learned that Anne Murray was going to do an inspirational album for her next release, I'll admit that I was a little skeptical. I thought "not 'Peace In the Valley' and 'The Old Rugged Cross'". Being a long-time fan of Anne's, I just wasn't too sure about this whole idea. Well, I shouldn't have doubted! While completely different from her last studio album (1996's "Anne Murray"), this is an outstanding acheivement for Anne. First off, Anne's voice gets better and better with every album. Second, the arrangements for the songs are great and third, Anne's daughter, Dawn, has a beautiful voice, too. Bottom line: its great music. I especially like "Amazing Grace", "Let It Be" "In The Garden", "You've Got a Friend", "Elijah", "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and, Of course, "Let There Be Love". Oh Yeah, "Peace In The Valley" and "The Old Rugged Cross" are good too. Just buy It!

5.0 out of 5 stars Anne has still got "it" Nov. 19 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anne Murray's pipes are in great working condition on this new CD. Not only are the songs inspirational, but Anne is also an inspiration to all other "older" singers. Over the past decade, Anne has diversified her recording and strayed away from the formulaic same-sound-as-the-last-CD that perpetuates so many younger singers CDs (Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey to name a few). The result is confirmation of her status not only as a great singer but one with artistic integrity. Though many songs on this CD are of the religious variety, there are plenty more contemporary tracks here to satisfy all - including one of the best tracks off of her previous self-titled studio album - "The Other Side" (hopefully the second single). "Let There Be Love" and "Elijah" will please her younger fans. Classy and confident. Good show Anne.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight., Clean and Simple Dec 6 2000
Format:Audio CD
There are not many singers who can take a lyric and really make it their own. In this collection of inspirational pieces, it was good to hear that a Catholic girl could take those old time Methodist hymns and make them her own. This is a great album. I particularly liked the standards like "In the Garden", The Old Rugged Cross" but also enjoyed the solid interpretaion of the Jennifer Warnes' "Song for Bernadette" and "Elijah" the Jackie DeShannon classic "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" and Don Williams" Lord I Hope this Say is Good".

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab This One Fast March 24 2000
Format:Audio CD
A long-time fan of Anne Murray, I was naturally delighted to see this 2 CD set appear. As someone homebound by illness, I've played it frequently to keep up my spirits and keep down the self-pity. I originally bought it for the familiar songs, such as the title tune. I find, however, that I'm even fonder of the new (to me at least) songs. "Elijah" rocks. "The Other Side" carries an important message in its memorable lyrics and melody. If you're a fan of Miss Murray's or songs of inspiration, you'll find this CD money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anne - the anti-Celine Nov. 16 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You radio programmers - play "Let There Be Love" and your audience will thank you for it. And that's not even the highlight of this superb CD. "Elijah", "Song Of Bernadette" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" are standouts. And you reading this review - forgo the upcoming Celine Dion overproduced opus and spend your money on a truly classy package from the "other" voice. The voice is in fine form, there's nothing wrong here. Musically, everything sounds great. The legend continues to grow.
