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.

As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
