Myself When I Am Real

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Bebo Norman's third release for Reunion Records proves this former indie artist is in the major leagues for good. Light acoustic folk-rock melodies embellished with delicate arrangements highlight Norman's beautiful lyrics, which, this time around, take a deeply personal spin. Norman wrote or co-wrote all 11 tracks on Myself When I Am Real, which takes its name from a painting. This is an album about needing God: Whether it's the lost angel of "Falling Down," searching for salvation in her Hollywood magazines, or the couple for whom marriage is a struggle on "Long Way Home," Norman offers a gentle Christian perspective on the conflicts that make up daily life. Unlike many...

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Bebo Norman's third release for Reunion Records proves this former indie artist is in the major leagues for good. Light acoustic folk-rock melodies embellished with delicate arrangements highlight Norman's beautiful lyrics, which, this time around, take a deeply personal spin. Norman wrote or co-wrote all 11 tracks on Myself When I Am Real, which takes its name from a painting. This is an album about needing God: Whether it's the lost angel of "Falling Down," searching for salvation in her Hollywood magazines, or the couple for whom marriage is a struggle on "Long Way Home," Norman offers a gentle Christian perspective on the conflicts that make up daily life. Unlike many Christian artists, Norman doesn't present a rosy view of the world but rather softens harsh realities with the knowledge that God is always working on our behalf. A highlight of this collection is "Where the Trees Stand Still," an intimate, hauntingly beautiful song about the joys and loneliness of an itinerant musician. Myself When I Am Real is a candid look at life, but it's also an exquisite one, a triumph for its writer and performer.
All Music Guide - Steven Douglas Losey
With the release of his third national disc, Bebo Norman solidifies himself as an adult contemporary force in the Christian music industry. Myself When I Am Real is an exercise in well-produced, acoustically driven folk-pop that presents itself as a powerful package, eliciting one memorable song after another. Cuts like "Our Mystery" and "Falling Down" are tunes that offer the listener guitar-driven, soulful melodies. On the lighter side, cuts like "Where the Trees Stand Still" and "Long Way Home" deliver the goods via acoustic guitars and melancholy melodies reminiscent of the former Cat Stevens. One of the disc's most poignant offerings comes via the song "Just to look at You." When Norman sings, "I would give my soul just to look at you," it's a believable statement from a vocalist who sings with tenderness and conviction. Myself When I Am Real is the type of disc that offers one powerful melody after another. It's a gift from a powerful performer sharing his talents with the rest of the world.

    Thoughtfully Inspirational!

    Bebo combines his music and lyric in a way that provokes thought and Inspires the heart. The song "Great Light of the World" has got to be my favorite. It has nearly brought me to tears on more than one occasion! Absolutely awesome!

    Excellent

    This is the most beautiful music I have ever heard. It has quickly become my favorite CD. I never tire of it, and I listen to it all the time. Bebo Norman's music is uplifting, emotional, and full of strength.
