Overview

Sweeping melodies carry eloquent lyrics about the love between God and man to new places on Geoff Moore's Beautiful Sound. Collaborating with such first-rate writers as Audio Adrenaline's Mark Stuart and "God of Wonders" tunesmith Mark Byrd, Moore's second solo project is an inspirational affair, recalling the magical songcraft and acoustic sentiment of Rich Mullins while adding enough of Moore's own dramatic influences to make this project uniquely his own. "Come as You Are" is a yearning, expressive track backed with melodramatic violins and simple piano, but Moore's delivery steers the tune away from the mawkish; elsewhere, the title track uses upbeat guitars and restrained vocals to express the beauty of a relationship with Christ. Moore has never sounded better, and Beautiful Sound is filled with enough solid material to bring this longtime CCM figure some new attention.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven Douglas Losey
A Beautiful Sound is the most intensely personal offering from Geoff Moore over an illustrious two-decade career. Previously heading Geoff Moore & the Distance, this disc is Moore's first solo attempt. Partnering with Joel Hanson (PFR), Marc Byrd (Common Children), Pete Stewart, and Steven Curtis Chapman, amongst others, Moore offers up song after song of poignant lyrics and stirring musicianship. Gone on the disc is the electric edge prominent with Geoff Moore & the Distance, replaced with acoustic guitars, mandolins, piano, and sweet, poetic harmonies. Songs like "Surrounded," co-penned by Byrd, and "Swept Away" are testimony to lyrics brimming with the love of Christ. Both cuts are filled with acoustic nuances that soar to the heavens. "All I Want" is a song featuring subdued, whispered vocals by Moore that pinnacle at the chorus. On the release, Moore seems to be at his best with the mix of acoustic and electric guitars driving the cuts. A Beautiful Sound is Moore's finest work in ten year -- inspiring cut after cut is testimony of it.
