Usually, when I'm not familiar with an artist, I'd have to listen to the songs a lot to get a feel for my thoughts. Not this one. I quickly enjoyed this album. She made a smart choice to start the album with, "Today". The musical instrument arrangement truly gave me a skip in my step. I liken my peppy frolic to Charlie Chaplin. Simply and immediately brightened my mood.
It's hard to pick a favorite song because all the songs were uplifting in a lively way. The lyrics encouraged me to be happy and get this, I felt happy! That's saying considerably since sometimes Christian songs can be so heartwarming that they sound depressing. This album was a good mix of heartfelt emotion and motivation. The artist was even creative. For example, in her song, "Enlisted", she blended the well know hymn, "Onward Christian Soldiers", to the song. It was incredibly invigorating. Overall, the album selections were vibrant. So if you want to be in a happy mood, listen to this album!
