Overview

Few artists are as beloved by their fans as veteran Christian singer Sandi Patty. In a career that's spanned over two decades, this multiple Grammy and Dove Award winner has continued to make music that's a heartfelt expression of her faith while continuing to mature as an artist, as These Days demonstrates. Her performances here carry the sense of hard-won wisdom that comes from experiencing life's highs and lows and relating how the artist's faith has helped pull her through. Opening with the lively "Wouldn't Trade It for the World," Patty maintains her trademark adult contemporary sound throughout this tremendously joyful collection, consistently steering clear of the cheese factor.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Charlotte Dillon
Award-winning gospel singer Sandi Patty's album, These Days, is filled with a Christian pop beat and strong, inspirational lyrics. Of course, her voice is beautiful enough to almost gloss over bad songs, but that's not needed here. Fans probably won't find a single track on this album that they care to skip. These songs are quality offerings from production to writing to music. The Christian messages in the tunes on These Days touch hearts without knocking listeners over the head. It makes it easy to see why Patty performs before sold-out crowds so often and has been called on to entertain smaller audiences at places like the White House. During her long career, she has earned a number of Grammy awards and more than two dozen Dove awards. Maybe she is so good at singing words of faith and encouragement because of the life she leads, filled with work for charities and the daily obstacles she runs into as the mother of eight children. A few of the standout songs on this album are "Wings of Peace," "In the Calm," "Go Without Knowing," "Candles," and "Wouldn't Trade It for the World."
