|Full Product Review|
by Jenny Phillips
“Heal Me” by Jenny Phillips is 11 songs based on the scriptures. All 11 songs are written by Jenny Phillips herself or in collaboration with others. All of the songs are based on stories found in the scriptures. Some songs such as “Be not afraid” and “Heal Me” show us how we can apply the scriptures in our own lives. Other songs, such as “Abinadi” and “Healing Hands” are musical portrayals of the scriptures.
The 11 songs on the album are well written. Sis. Phillips has done a good job at writing songs that accurately portray the stories they represent. She has also been very successful at working in reminders of how we can apply the scriptures in our own lives. While reading the words of the songs you can’t help but be moved by the messages they are portraying. It’s the words on this album that is truly my favorite part. They really made me think.
The musical accompaniment for the song is also nice. It’s not particularly exceptional, however. Truly, it reminds me of the music that is found on so many LDS albums. There’s a nice melody and it’s very sweet but the music just does not jump out at you. It’s very traditional LDS contemporary music. In many ways it reminds me of Jeff Goodrich’s music. The song’s have very good, Christ centered, messages while the music itself is rather ordinary.
I enjoyed the album. When I began listening, I wasn’t so sure I would. However, by the end of the album it began to grow on me. I would not have regretted buying the album had I purchased it myself. On the other hand, this album, musically, is quite similar to many other LDS albums. If you enjoy good LDS music and have some extra cash you will like this album. However, if you are on a limited budget and only can have a few CD’s you might want to wait for something else. So, I’m going to give this album 3 stars because I liked the album but I didn’t love it.
