From Strength to Strength is the fourth album for Minnesota's folk-rocker Peter Himmelman and his first for Epic Records. Produced by Himmelman and featuring his long-time backing band, he delivers an album full of acoustic-based adult rock with harmonica, organ and violin giving it a typically earthy vibe. The highlight of the record is "Woman with the Strength of 10,000 Men," a stirring song about the perseverance of a paralyzed woman. The track managed to garner a bit of play at adult alternative stations. There's a lot more to appreciate on this solid record which is anchored by strong songwriting by Himmelman which often has spiritual overtones like the gently resilient lyric and melody of "This Too Shall Pass" and the lovely song of devotion "Mission Of My Soul." Insistent and intelligent, From Strength To Strength is worthwhile listening for those who like a little kick to the gray matter.
