Aaron Keyes "Not Guilty Anymore" by Grace Thorson (cmaddict.com) on 2010-08-08 17:15:27
Aaron Keyes is new to the Christian music industry - his debut album Not Guilty Anymore releases this month from Kingsway and EMI CMG Distribution. The genre of the album is modern worship with a hint of rock in it.
All of the songs off the album are unique in their own special way, but by far the one that sticks out the most is “Never Cease To Amaze Me” – it moves fast in its rhythm and words. I would say that this is the rockiest song on this album. “I am Yours” has great lyrics that ring true - “So who will declare the glory of God, So who will cry out, unashamed, “He is glorious.” This is a beautiful song and one of my favorites. “Psalm 62” has a much slower beat but it’s powerful and very peaceful. It starts out quiet but works up to a bigger chorus. The “Like Jesus” track has a rockier sound to it like the first song. Warning! It has a catchy tune and lyrics – which I unavoidably got an earworm from listening to. Three more songs to make note of are: “Nothing Less Than Beautiful”, “Not Guilty Anymore”, and “Blessing and Honour” – which all have great lyrics.
My closing thoughts are that Aaron Keys has a real talent for lyric writing. He sings each song with such passion and emotion. Truly moving! Not Guilty Anymore is the most creative worship album that I’ve come across in a while. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some of Aaron Keys’ songs being printed and sung in churches. I really look forward to seeing what else this talented new singer has planned for his next music project.

A musty odor had been coming from the vicinity of my husband’s man-cave for months. I chalked it up to his old collection of books and memorabilia, but the real cause will force us to tear things up to get to the root of the problem and fix it.
