Nichole Nordeman's "THE UNMAKING"

I listened to a new CD while making dinner tonight. That's not something I usually do. Making dinner can be a tense time when you're trying to get things done quickly. Tonight, however, I felt relaxed as I listened to Nichole Nordeman's new album The Unmaking.
My thoughts:
  • I was not familiar with her prior to listening to this recording.
  • Her voice is pretty. 
  • I like that I can understand the words easily. I don't have to wonder what she's singing about.
  • Honestly, I don't tend to like popular Christian music like one might hear on K-LOVE. Too much percussion for my ears. 
  • It was relaxing but upbeat music. 
  • The words of The Unmaking spoke directly to a situation I am working through in my life.
  • This is an album that I will enjoy playing. Now...if I could only figure out how to load it on my Ipod!
Emily's (17) thoughts:
  • She is a unique artist.
  • I enjoy her voice.
Amy's (14) thoughts:
  • I liked it, but it sort of seemed like she changed her style of singing a tiny bit.
  • Overall, I liked it. 
  • Nichole Nordman's one of my favorite singers.

About the new album The Unmaking:
"Before things in our lives can be resurrected and given new life, certain things must die.  Before beauty blooms in spring, roots must do the hard work under the hard frozen soil of winter.  Before you renovate and re-build, you tear down the parts of the structure that are weak or damaged or dangerous.  Before we make, we must unmake."  Nichole Nordeman

  4. Christian music... I still love Newsboys and Superchick! Also really love hymns done to new music -- Indelible Grace is a group that does a lot of that stuff. I have a pandora radio station full of it! :)
