Great Light of the World: The Best of Bebo Norman

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
This greatest-hits package marked the influential singer/songwriter's departure from Essential Records. The collection culls heavily from Bebo Norman's breakthrough 2002 album, Myself When I Am Real, as well as 2006's Between the Dreaming and the Coming True.

Still, the grandeur of Norman's understated vocals and penetrating lyrics is clearly manifested. Strung together between his newer contemporary pop numbers are the worship standards "Nothing Without You," "I Will Lift My Eyes," and the ubiquitous title track. New listeners might be surprised at how these familiar songs seem to resonate.
