Overview

Bebo Norman is known for framing astute observations about life and faith in a delicate acoustic-pop musicality. It's a winning combination that brought about the emotionally resonant Myself When I Am Real, his most successful release yet. Try, the follow-up, lacks the impassioned lyricism of that previous effort, relying on worship-like litanies and empty clichés. (sample: "Some say home is where the heart is, and my heart is in Your hands, You are all I need...") Norman is a good enough writer to know better: "Standing In Your Silence" and "Borrow Mine," his two singular compositions on Try, are by far the best tracks, buttressing clever wordplay with emotional honesty. Musically, Try fares better. The melodies are familiar, and presented with acoustic-folk-pop instrumentation and delicate harmonies the overall effect is pleasing. One gets the impression that Norman has been purposely steered in a more commercial direction this time around, but Christian music already has one Chris Rice. What we really want is our Bebo Norman.
