Jimmy Needham "Nightlights" by Grant Yoder (cmaddict.com) on 2010-05-26 14:06:14
Alright, let’s make a deal. Put your earphones in, push play, and close your eyes. I’ll do the same. We’ll meet around the fire that’s been lit on a beach in the Caribbean. If that’s what you need, then this album will take you there.
There are times that the lyrics are heavy with “christianese” language, which can feel a bit trite. But, overall, you can tell that the writer really tackled the message and took the time to write something special.
One of the best tracks on the record is track 10: “Miss a Thing”. The lyrics paint a picture that’s tough to ignore, and then challenges you to add your own colors to that painting. Very inspiring, very……
Another great track is number 9: “How Sweet It Is”. A classic song brought back to life by Needham.
Overall a very well put together album. It never let’s up. A lot of albums try to catch you on the first song and then by the end of the record you’ve lost interest. This record slowly builds to 60mph as opposed to starting at 60mph and slamming on the brakes.
I’ll admit when I first popped this in I thought “this isn’t really my genre of music”, but Needham changed my mind. I appreciate his passion and that’s what you get from this album…..passion.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness as His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
