Stayby Jeremy Camp
Newcomer Jeremy Camp delivers one of the most awe-inspiring performances of any debut CCM artist in the past decade. Vocally, musically, and lyrically Stay is a potent mix of one standout cut after another. Leaning heavily on a mix of acoustic and electric guitars and driving basslines, cuts like "Understand" and "All The Time" are painted with a straightforward rock stroke. On tender moments Camp's vulnerabilities and experiences lend themselves to some shining moments. Tunes like "Right Here" lyrically lean on Christ. "Everywhere I go I know you're not far away, Your right here." Also, the acoustically driven "In Your Presence" is an example of a songwriter pouring out the essence of his soul into each word. Turning the tides, Camp sheds the acoustic image in favor of a blasting, distorted electric on the tune "Take My Life." Here the artist ventures into Creed territory with a cut that drives on 18 wheels. What's undeniable about Stay is that it's enduring on many different levels. Some cuts exemplify a millennium artist that writes an eclectic mix of rock-induced contemporary praise and worship while utilizing a vocal style that's strong and listenable. On another level, the mix of effect-laden electrics and steel forged basslines completely deliver the goods.

This is agreat CD. If you like Matchbox 20 you'll love Jeremy Camp. The music rocks and the beats are awesome. WOW! Great to sing along with.
Camp has just made one of the most diverse records that has been out in a long time. He blends hard rock and acoustics into the perfect match. The listener can see the journey that Camp went on making this record. His lyrics are much like Switchfoot, powerful and moving with quick little licks. Undoubtedly THE best new artist this year!!
"Stay" is one of the best rock albums I've heard in quite some time. From his passionate, raw lyrics to his fiery guitar licks, Jeremy Camp will convince you to stay. And if you dig his album, check him out in concert. The man tears up the stage. :) Stand-out Tracks: +Stay +All the Time +Take My Life +Understand
Jeremy Camp's music is very inspirational. Its not exactly what I was looking for but I am extremely happy I made this purchase. The first time I listened to it I wanted to capture every word he said but I think this is the wrong approach. Just listen to the music over a few times and the words will come to you. When they do it makes it even more powerful.
I'm a dedicated Christian and I have been looking for some good Christian artists but haven't found any ones that stand out...then I heard Jeremy Camp. I'm a BIG fan of rock and Jeremy is the PERFECT combination of rock and christian. It doesn't get better then this. My favorite song is "Take My Life"...great to headbang to!
When I got this CD for Christmas a couple years ago I had never really heard Jeremy Camp before, and when I started listening to him I was so amazed by his talent and I couldn't stop listening to it! It's so good that I'm going to buy all of his other CDs too! Jeremy Camp's the best, and anyone that says he isn't is off their rocker.
