Shades of Grace

Shades of Grace

by Bob Carlisle



In the spring of 1997, Bob Carlisle unexpectedly had a crossover hit with "Butterfly Kisses," an ode to his love for his daughter which just happened to hit the airwaves around Father's Day. Excited at the prospect of a major hit, the label re-released Carlisle's Shades of Grace under the title Butterfly Kisses, hoping it would lure the mainstream audience. Although their gambit worked, it's unclear how many "Butterfly Kisses" fans will be satisfied with the entire album, because it doesn't have many songs that are equally as catchy. The sound of the record is pleasant enough, since Carlisle has a good voice and the music is smooth and unobtrusive, but there aren't enough strong songs to satisfy pop consumers. Still, Butterfly Kisses [Shades of Grace] demonstrates a leap forward for Carlisle, and its best, hook-laden moments make it his best record yet.
