All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
How appropriate is it that when this popular CCM vocalist is either praying to or praising God, he hits all the emotional hotspots, yet when he's telling folksy tales about only marginally interesting characters, the songs fall somewhat flat? He could easily have a potential worship standard on his hands with the joyous, country influenced up-tempo rocker "This Good Day," which simply but effectively sees the morning as a gift of the Creator. The simple piano-vocal piece "Pass Me Not" and dramatic, soaring "Beyond the Sky" have an amazing hymn-like quality to them as they explore all the doubts and faith inherent in the Christian life.

How appropriate is it that when this popular CCM vocalist is either praying to or praising God, he hits all the emotional hotspots, yet when he's telling folksy tales about only marginally interesting characters, the songs fall somewhat flat? He could easily have a potential worship standard on his hands with the joyous, country influenced up-tempo rocker "This Good Day," which simply but effectively sees the morning as a gift of the Creator. The simple piano-vocal piece "Pass Me Not" and dramatic, soaring "Beyond the Sky" have an amazing hymn-like quality to them as they explore all the doubts and faith inherent in the Christian life. "No One Else" comes across like a swinging pop Psalm, and a gentle reworking of the African-American plea "Give Me Jesus" is pure and heartfelt. On the other hand, pieces like "Old Girl" that don't reference God are forgettable folk tunes. There are hints here of a Rich Mullins-like writing and vocal style, but with slightly less imagination. Given time, though, Ortega could develop into one of CCM's brightest lights of the new millennium.

    Give Me Jesus

    Wow! I heard ''Give Me Jesus'', the last track from this CD, on the radio while I was in the car. It is so simple and beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. I purchased this CD for that song alone but many of the other songs are good too.

    A worthwhile cd

    Fernando Ortega's sounds are rich and mature. On the same hand, he has a great style, which shifts between pop and hymn. While there are two or three songs on the cd that I don't listen to very often (Old Girl & On the Line), 3 or 4 are top favorites of mine. A great CD, not the alternative or fadish christian cd you'll throw away or forget in a year.
