EDITORS’ NOTES

Playing like classic rock radio refracted through a Christian worldview, Daniel Amos’ second album spends its first side easing into wide-open country-rock—right down to Eagles-style vocal harmonies—before diving into a vaguely psychedelic, prog-rock opera on Side Two. That may sound like a mess, but the group’s tight songcraft helps the whole thing congeal. Keep your ears open for “Praise Song”—its cascading harmonies lifting up the “wonderful Savior and Lord”—and “Father’s Arms,” which rides an addictive little groove resembling that of a much-less-cynical Steely Dan.
