Carolyn Arends latest CD contains superb writing with a deep literary quality. Her lyrics are profoundly spiritual, the musicianship and production first-rate.

Arends gives insightful commentary on churchgoers pretending to have it all together (Just Pretending), who often end up "dry and foolish and lonely" (The Wasteland). Arends sings of making little room for true faith in our hearts, because we get so full of ourselves by substituting 'things' over relationship with God (What In The World). She herself cries out"what darkness hides within this heart of mine, why do I do what I despise?" echoing Romans 7:19. She proposes a hope not found in this world, where we can "cling to this last bit of rope" (Not Alone). She is grateful to find God's hand in the winter of the "Land Of The Living". The closing tune (I've Got A Hope) calls us to remember that this tainted world we live in "is not our home". By the end of the CD I felt both reverence and dance for the Man of Sorrows she portrays- like worship. For edgy vocals and world-class playing, this CD is a must.
