Only a Mountain

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Jason Castro's third studio album, 2013's Only a Mountain, is the singer's second contemporary Christian-themed release and builds nicely upon 2010's Who I Am. Previous to these releases, Castro worked in the realm of secular pop
ock with his 2008 self-titled debut. That release, coming off Castro's run on American Idol, delivered a pleasant, somewhat hippy-dippy sound that moved from strummy ukulele cuts to more strident alt-rock tunes. Who I Am quickly followed that same year, and worked overall to reveal the dreadlocked singer to be a deeper, more thoughtful artist than his time on AmIdol might have shown.

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Jason Castro's third studio album, 2013's Only a Mountain, is the singer's second contemporary Christian-themed release and builds nicely upon 2010's Who I Am. Previous to these releases, Castro worked in the realm of secular pop
ock with his 2008 self-titled debut. That release, coming off Castro's run on American Idol, delivered a pleasant, somewhat hippy-dippy sound that moved from strummy ukulele cuts to more strident alt-rock tunes. Who I Am quickly followed that same year, and worked overall to reveal the dreadlocked singer to be a deeper, more thoughtful artist than his time on AmIdol might have shown. In that spirit, Only a Mountain showcases how much Castro has grown, especially as a vocalist. Tracks like "If It's Love" and the slow-burn ballad "Stay This Way" display Castro's more mature vocal sound, one that falls somewhere between the yearning gravity of OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder and the hushed intensity of Ed Sheeran. These are dynamic piano- and guitar-driven productions that slough off some of his more cherubic tendencies in favor of an adult contemporary soulfulness. It also doesn't hurt that Castro, who married in 2010 and had a daughter in 2011, gets co-writing credit on every song on Only a Mountain. The result is that Only a Mountain is a solid album that leaves you with the impression that Castro is more directly in command of his life, his career, and his music.
