Overview

On his 2000 release, A Different Man, Clay Crosse is clearly just that. He's found his voice as an artist. This is, by far, his most personal release. Crosse had a hand in crafting nearly every song. In the liner notes, he explains that this album is the result of a time repentance and self-examination. He felt that he had lost his way, and this album is the fruit of his journey toward healing. He addresses this time in his life with refreshing honesty. The album opens with "No Fear," an upbeat riff on living life fearlessly. It moves to "Arms of Jesus," one of three songs Crosse considers his "testimony songs" on this album. It has an almost childlike lilt and simplicity to it. "'Til the End of the World" compliments "Arms of Jesus" nicely. It's a departure for Crosse, artistically, with its intense groove and gospel choir-backed sound. These qualities make it the best track of the album. "Memphis" addresses the racial problems of Crosse's hometown with an interesting Southern rock style. A Different Man shows Crosse coming into his own, as a man, as a Christian, and as an artist. Its personal nature makes it both painful and compelling to listen to. Crosse's album of hope and healing is his best project yet.
