Album DescriptionAs a founding member of the 3.5 million selling group 4HIM, Andy Chrisman has been ONE of the voices that help them garner over 22 hit singles in their illustrious career. Andy's debut effort (aptly entitled ONE) delivers pure pop music inspired by his love of Scripture, his heart for ministry, and his zeal for worship, including his experiences as a worship pastor in a local Orlando, Florida church. Tapping into his passion for the One who created us all, Andy has written songs for this project that carry out Ephesians 5:19, "Be filled with the Spirit by reciting psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs for your own good. Sing and make music to the Lord with your hearts." (GOD'S WORD Translation) While continuing to tour with 4HIM, Andy will also support ONE with numerous concert and promotional appearances.

My taste in music varies from Nickelback and Live, to Third Day and Steven Curtis Chapman. Although this CD may be considered pop style music...I can't stop listening to it!!!
This CD deserves 6 stars Jun 30, 2006
I wish they had 6 stars as an option. I have always loved 4HIM. I have all of their CD's. This is by far the best worship album I have heard!!! Andy's voice is amazing as usual and the songs are wonderful!!!!!
I don't know 4Him, but I like this Andy guy... May 13, 2006
Naivete is often the way you learn about the best things. I know almost nothing about 4Him. Chances are, if you're viewing this review, by now you know he's a member of 4Him. I've only heard about 3 songs by them, and I like them (not love them), and even though I collect any (and every) Christian cd I think looks good, I never really considered buying one of their cds. When I saw this cd on the shelf at my Christian Music store, I thought, "Hey, a new face in Christian music!". How wrong I was. I never even looked at the thank-you's, I just plunged right into the music. Didn't even find out who he was until 4 months after buying it. (I thought he was much younger...he looks a lot younger in the photo shoots for this album...I wonder why that is.) It is moving music. But to be honest, the guy can't rock. Not that it's bad. His music is uplifting and some of the pop anthems are close to fast-paced. And as long as we're being honest, let's just come out and say it: his voice can be annoying. It's an acquired taste, no doubt, like Jody Davis of the Newsboys or Jeromy Deibler of FFH. But I can guarantee, if you love Mark Harris' (also of 4Him) voice, you'll love it. I can't say the lyrics are incredibly thought-provoking, not after you've heard Christian lyric geniuses like Steve Taylor and Toby McKeehan. They are good, but not 5 stars. Besides, they're not all written by Andy himself, so don't blame it all on him. Overall, it's a great cd. Buy it if you like what you hear from 4Him. I'm gonna have to go buy some 4Him stuff now.

***** He's a "ONE" of a kind Christian Singer . . . ***** Jun 16, 2005
As you probably already know, Andy Chrisman is a former member of the group 4Him. I had purchased Andy Chrisman's CD before I got into 4Him, but I really do think I like 4Him better than just Andy Chrisman's solo album. BUT, this review is supposed to be about this CD; so that's just what I'll talk about! It all started when I heard the song "Complete" on my Christian radio station. I really loved that song, and decided it was about time to check into this guy. I didn't know that he WAS a member of 4Him until I did check into him. So I listened to song samples and really enjoyed them. I immediately bought the CD online, and now I'm very glad of it because it IS such a wonderful CD, and I play it a lot! His music is definitely for all ages - I'm only13 and just love it! My favorite songs are Believe, Complete, Atmosphere, Everything, What's Left To Say, and The Word of God. The other ones are OK, but not my very favorites. The lyrics of these songs are so good with so much thought - well of course that comes natural being a former 4Him member! Andy is really serious about God and spreading the word of Him through his fantastic music! I also found out that he is also a full-time Pastor in Orlando, Florida. I really do think that Andy Chrisman is different from other Contemporary Christian Artists out there and I like how, not only him, but 4Him's music is so convincing and outstandingly done. I think you should definitely consider purchasing this CD, and also start looking into 4Him. They're music is a little bit different than Andy Chrisman on his own, but I'm sure you'll love 4Him as much if not more than Andy Chrisman! Another thing I wanted to mention and couldn't possibly leave out . . . Andy Chrisman's voice is just absolutely phenomenal!! I NEVER heard anything like it, and I'm sure I NEVER will! Andy Chrisman brought 4Him to its highest with his amazing vocal talent! So with an absolutely fantastic voice, brilliant artist, and wonderful music - Andy Chrisman makes everything needed to become the outstanding Christian artist he is!! I really do hope my review helps, and thanks for taking the time to read it! If you're interested in 4Him, check out "Best Ones" and "Chapter One . . . A Decade" - they are their very BEST CDs!
