Award winning CCM singer/songwriter Phil Wickham's third full-length album continues in the tradition of the California native's previous two releases, offering listeners more of his signature, faith-based blend of atmospheric, Coldplay-inspired Brit-pop and soaring, radio-ready adult alternative rock. Bolstered by the singles "Eden" and "Safe" (the latter is a duet with fellow CCM rocker Bart Millard from MercyMe), Heaven & Earth cements Wickham's reputation as one of contemporary gospel's most original voices, and the perfect tonic for those who feel that modern CCM lacks the artistry of its muse.

There is a lot to be desired in my opinion, with this album, just because Phil uses so many (what sound like) digital sounds from a synthesizer. Most of the introductions to the songs I'm not a fan of, but the meat of the songs is really good, and I find myself singing them out loud whether I'm listening to it or not! So, not my favorite, but definitely a solid collection of songs that rock (once you get past the intro's)... ;)
I received this album from a friend of mine who really loves it, and though I am not as big of a fan of it as he is, I still thought it was really inspiring and relaxing. This is just another title I have acquired on my quest to expand the mix of my music and discover more contemporary music. I am mainly a fan of rock/metal/hardcore stuff, but I have been working toward broadening my horizons some over the past little while, and this is just another good step toward that goal. If you enjoy relaxing/contemporary type music, with good vocals and such, then I recommend this album to you. It's pretty good. Check it out!
All the songs are great! Ceilo, Eden, The Time is Now, Safe should all be hits! I love listening to and singing along to Phil Wickham's music.
