Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Is that a sitar ringing on "Sufficiency of Grace," the opening cut of Greg Long's newest release? And a Latin-flavored guitar solo on the gentle ballad "Help Somebody Cry"? The multitalented Long has never been afraid to mix things up a bit, but Now, his first release in two years, shows the artist blending an impressively diverse array of musical elements. Long weaves his uncompromising Christian message throughout the album -- he has never been one to mince words when it comes to lyrics, as evidenced by the title of his 1998 hit, "Jesus Saves." Among the strongest cuts here are the powerful "We Dream of a Kingdom," and a much edgier rock-influenced "The Gospel." Of all ...

Is that a sitar ringing on "Sufficiency of Grace," the opening cut of Greg Long's newest release? And a Latin-flavored guitar solo on the gentle ballad "Help Somebody Cry"? The multitalented Long has never been afraid to mix things up a bit, but Now, his first release in two years, shows the artist blending an impressively diverse array of musical elements. Long weaves his uncompromising Christian message throughout the album -- he has never been one to mince words when it comes to lyrics, as evidenced by the title of his 1998 hit, "Jesus Saves." Among the strongest cuts here are the powerful "We Dream of a Kingdom," and a much edgier rock-influenced "The Gospel." Of all the selections on Now, "The Gospel" is the most reminiscent of Long's "Jesus Saves" days, and a surefire hit in waiting. Let's hope the record company gurus don't wait until, um, later to give this one a shot at radio.
All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Fulfilling his earlier promise as a heavyweight anthemic pop singer/songwriter in contemporary Christian music, Greg Long displays a truer expanse of his artistry on this irresistible collection. Power pop expressions of faith like "Sufficiency of Grace" should help add to his accolades within his genre, which at the time of this album's release included six number one hit singles, two Dove Award nominations including a nod for "Mercy Said No" as Song of the Year, and the number two CCM Song of the Year, "Love the Lord." The only drawback is that a few of the songs tend to be a bit over-synthesized; "I Won't Take You for Granted" is a powerful tale of appreciation, but could benefit from a more stripped down approach. Ditto "Loud and Clear," which takes aim at the electronic approach U2 employed in the late '90s. Fortunately, tender, sparse ballads like the plaintive "In the Waiting" compensate and allow the listener to better appreciate Long's soulful vocals. By far, the best cut is the anthem "We Dream of a Kingdom," which begins gently before stating the ultimate aim of the Christian heart, complete with crunchy guitars and a powerful choir.
