EDITORS’ NOTES

It would be easy for Natalie Grant to rely only on her compelling vocal presence, but thankfully she continues her commitment to meaningful lyric content on her 2008 album Relentless. As with her 2005 breakthrough Awaken, Grant applies her formidable pipes to a set of above-average tunes, avoiding glib slogans in favor of darker, more probing expressions. For those with a taste for big, brawny rock tracks, “I Will Not Be Moved” finds her rising to heroic heights amidst roaring volleys of guitar. The billowing R&B of “Perfect People” and the silken electronica of “Wonderful Life” display the softer end of her range to full advantage. Grant shines most of all on the album’s ballads, delivering aching performances against brooding piano and string arrangements. “Safe,””Our Hope Endures,” and “Make a Way” offer stirring expressions of God’s promise of healing and redemption. Serious in intent and near-flawless in execution, Relentless is a classy and often moving work by one of Christian music’s most formidable talents.

Lyrics, Lyrics, Lyrics!

I just can't get over Natalie Grant's lyrics... I have never heard another artist that sings as if she is speaking directly to you. (Maybe because God really is) The words, and melodies are such that they draw you in, anticipating each and every next word. There is a connection to her songs that just can't be found in secular music. If her songs are any indication of her faith, God is looking down and saying "well done, good and faithful servant". Great Performer!, Great Album!, Awesome God!

"Relentless" - Natalie Grant 2008

I loveee Natalie! This album is soooo uplifting and inspiring. My personal favorites would include: In Better Hands Now (of course!), I Will Not Be Moved (BarlowGirl-ish), Back At My Heart and Perfect People. I love the whole album though. It's totally worth the $11.99 and more!
