Editors’ Notes On A Way to See in the Dark, Jason Gray touches on universal themes of Christian worship while making them seem like late-night confessions. Gray’s full-bodied tenor implies inner strength even when he declares his abject weakness; the album’s stirring production reinforces his songs’ resolute spirit. “Remind Me Who I Am” and “The Sound of Our Breathing” are among the tracks that recall Big Country and similar Celtic-influenced rock bands. Tunes like “No Thief Like Fear” and “Fear Is Easy, Love Is Hard” are at once dark-tinged and uplifting, acknowledging the call of darkness while striving toward the light. Gray especially shines on “Without Running Away,” a song examining the urge toward self-destruction with unusual frankness and insight. In the end, A Way to See in the Dark is very much a devotional work, praising God with finely wrought poetic language and evocative, ear-catching music. With this exceptional release, Gray’s well on his way to Christian music stardom.
