I have no idea how I missed this one. I have heard a lot of the songs on this CD on the radio so I should have known that this CD was released over a year ago. In case you missed it (like I did), I HIGHLY recommend the CD “Something to Say” by Matthew West. Even more, I recommend the special edition if you can find it. I downloaded the entire collection last week and it has been in constant rotation ever since.
Many of the songs you have probably heard on local radio. “Something to Say”, “You are Everything” and the current number one single “The Motions” are three reasons to download this CD today. However there are several other songs that I think I might like even more than those. Highlighted below are those which I recommend. What I like about Matthew West is his honesty. He has the gift of writing a song that sounds like something he would tell you over coffee.
One song in particular is called “The Moment of Truth”. It speaks to our need to re-visit those moments that meant so much (wedding day, birth of a child, salvation), when we’re about to make a decision that we wonder “what we’ve got to lose”. Such a great reminder that there are always other things at play that we can often forget about in “the moment”. I give “Something to Say” a better-late-than-never 4 out of 5!
