All Music Guide - Jared Johnson
Josh Wilson's second disc brings to mind the exuberant vocals and understated pop sensibilities of a young Steven Curtis Chapman. The gifted singer/songwriter peels back the surface of subjects that he knows about -- like his devotion to God -- and those that he is still investigating -- such as the reason for suffering in the world. With his resilient curiosity, Wilson dresses his questions in light AC grooves ("Listen," "Right in Front of Me") and standard modern worship ("Sing," "Before the Morning").

The short seven-track album concludes with an instrumental rendition of "Amazing Grace" that is ideal soundtrack fodder, though one wonders how such laudable guitar work could be put to better use on a more obscure tune. This disc is a proper stepping stone to even greater output. With a more distinguishable sound, Wilson could really be onto something here.

    Encouragement

    This CD, for anyone who thinks that they are alone, in their set of
    circumstances, needs to get this Cd. Just find you a set of ear-phones
    and find a quite place and listen to all of it, but especially, "Before The Morning. I had to listen just once on 106.9 the Light, to get the meaning of what Josh Wilson's message was to get peace from and in my situation. I had never known his name, nor heard this song. I'm truly thankful to hear it when I did!
