Anyone familiar with the polished adult contemporary tunes previously dished up by Dove Award winner Cheri Keaggy will be pleasantly surprised by Let's Fly. Unlike her past efforts, which leaned more toward highly polished, radio-friendly pop or Sandi Patty-style inspirational gloss, Let's Fly, Keaggy's fifth release, shows her spreading her wings. She wrote all of the songs here as well as producing the disc herself, and the resulting batch of Bible-based songs displays a sense of urgency, one she says came from a recent trip to Israel. Keaggy's little-girl vocals are reminiscent of Sarah Masen or Sixpence None the Richer's Leigh Nash, but they take on a folksy edge on songs like "Let's Fly" and "Save Me a Place." On the lighter side are "I Like," a sunny, effervescent affair with a simple, straightforward lyric, and the sweet "Christ in Me." Keaggy's lyrics don't delve especially deep, but melodically and vocally she takes her adult contemporary pop into edgier territory than on previous outings. As an added bonus, Let's Fly features some stellar guitar work, courtesy of legendary picker (and Cheri's uncle-in-law) Phil Keaggy. Definitely a flight worth catching.
