10 Songs, 41 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The songs on The Gray Havens’ first full-length release have a visionary quality that’s both playful and enraptured. Fire and Stone frames the vocals of the husband-and-wife duo of Dave and Licia Radford in sparkling acoustic-centered arrangements bolstered by members of Jars of Clay and The Rhett Walker Band. From whimsical parables (“Jack and Jill, Pt. 2”) to dreamy waltzes (“If the Walls Move”) and exalted hosannas (“Far Kingdom”), the album stands out for its imaginative treatment of faith. Those seeking something different in Christian folk-pop will find Fire and Stone a refreshing and inspiring listen.

Redeemed Creativity

People of all walks of life have been waiting for music to be interesting again, easy to follow and singable, lyrically captivating, and a sound distinct from what you are use to in mainstream Christian and secular musicians. Dave and Licia Radford have done it before and here they have done it again. There are no good reasons not to give up a few Starbucks drinks to own this album and share it with your friends.

Beautiful, Creative, and Hopeful

In a world of brokenness, can music offer real beauty, creativity and hope. Yes. And this album represents that masterfully. The creative lyrical storytelling of their first EP "Where Eyes Don't Go" is continued in this great album. If you get a chance to see them live you will hear much more of the stories behind each song and appreciate it even more. I'm excited to see much more from them in the future.

Incredible Album

This album definitely satisfies the desire to have more The Gray Havens created by their first EP. Everything fits together perfectly in Fire and Stone, and the album produces a wonderful arc. Every story in each song is beautifully told and contributes to the overall theme of our Inheritance in the Far Kingdom. No matter how many times you listen to this album it doesn't grow old much like reading a classic piece of literature. It would be very difficult to not enjoy the fantastical metaphors and alliterations packed into these songs. Fire and Stone is full of hope and leaves your ears satisfied.
