Jon Bauer – The Light in Us

Jon Bauer
The Light in Us
Crossway Records

This new album is just amazing from start to end. It is so full of biblical wisdom and the over-all light tones of the soundtrack are as comforting as the lyrical content. It’s personally uplifting, “You Just Want My Heart,” and challenging, “Where the Sidewalk Ends” all at the same time. The production is really incredible as well. The fullness of songs like “Lord Say Something” really drive home the message. Overall, the production values make the whole CD a joy to listen to from beginning to end. It’s hard to listen to the rousing closer, “Starts with Us,” and not be up lifted.
