Overview

After six independent releases, MercyMe strikes gold with their first national disc, entitled Almost There. While praise & worship music seems to be the trend, MercyMe offers a disc that tends to be the exception and not the norm. While lyrically sending vertical kudos, each cut is geared toward sending praise to the heavens. "I Worship You" kicks off the disc with a grand entrance; falling somewhere between adult contemporary and rock, the cut utilizes a swirling synth and acoustic guitars to weave a potent melody. "How Great Is Your Love" is a cut with an emotionally impressive chorus. Here, vocalist Bart Millard's delivers a compelling performance via effect-laden delays and a poignant delivery. "I Can Only Imagine" is a passionate piano-driven ballad. The tune begs the question what it would be like to be in the presence of God. Delivered with conviction, the song is emotionally compelling. Throughout the release, the guitar nuances of Mike Scheuchzer are reminiscent of U2's Edge, while keyboardist Jim Bryson places intense but subtle keyboard traces within the context of each tune. Almost There is a disc that holds power. It builds framework for the kingdom of God while lifting the souls of listeners along the way.

This Cd is a true blessing. Which includes, what I think is one of the best songs I've heard in a while ,''I Can Only Imagine.'' It will touch anyone who has ever 'imagined' what it will be like when they'll finally stand face to face with the Almighty. It was like Mercy Me came into my soul and found my very words and feelings. This particular song is a peace of heaven for me on earth. This CD is touching and a package of praise; truly a work of art.

Although most of may cds are country or musicals this is one of my all time favorites. I feal this group is truly inspired by God. If you are not a Christian listen anyway the music is great especially "I Can Only Imagine".

Incredible lyrics, incredible music, you will not be disappointed.

The songs are inspiring. For example, "I Can Only Imagine" with its beautiful lyrics makes one think about one's reaction to the the end of time when we'll be judged. The other songs are unique as well. You'll want to listen to them again and again. Enjoy.
