This CD is definitely Avalon's best effort yet. "Wonder Why", my favorite song from them of all time, gets things off to a great, fast-tempo start. This song really shows off the vocals of Jody and Janna. "The Best Thing", another favorite, features the voices of former members Michael Passons and Cherie Adams. This one's catchy without question, as is "Undeniably You". "By Heart, By Soul (With Aaron Neville)" is an AMAZING song with AMAZING voices. Aaron Neville was the perfect guest to sing that song. "I Don't Want To Go" is just flat out good. You probably have heard this one often on your local Christian radio station. "Never Givin' Up" has a really catchy beat to it, a definite highlight. Another highlight is "Make It Last Forever", a song with a rock sound that seems like it would be something that Plus One or a Christian BackStreet Boys would sing. A bit of a departure for Avalon, but this one is still awesome. "The Glory" will definitely do one thing: LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS!! Amazing vocal performance. "Oxygen" slows things down a bit, and tells how God is our oxygen and how we need him every second of every day. "Love Remains" and "Come And Fill My Heart" are both slow songs featuring the guys. "Beyond The Clouds", a COLLECTOR'S EDITION bonus track, closes things out with a faster beat that will get into your head fast. GREAT JOB! Overall, spectacular vocal performance, producing, and song selection. This album is fantastic and I would definitely recommend it to EVERYBODY!!

Favorite Album and Favorite Group Sep 28, 2005
The Christian Pop group Avalon is amazing!! This is my most favorite Christian group ever! I love all thier cd's but still missing thier first album "Avalon" (Talking about main ones) On all the main albums, I have at least one favorite song which most of them are the slower ones. They sing the best slow songs that any Christian I know next to Mercy Me or Casting Crowns. Here are my favorite songs from each album: 1) Avalon 1996- Picture Perfect World 2) A Maze of Grace 1997- Testify to Love, Adonai, Reason Enough 3) In a Different Light (A must have) 1999- Can't live a Day, Always have always will 4) Joy, A Christmas Collection 2000- Don't Save it all for Christmas Day 5)Oxygen 2001 (Favorite one, and definite must have)- I don't want to go, The Glory 6) The Creed 2004- All, You were There 7) Stand 2006- Love Won't Leave You, Orphan of God
If you love Christian music, and have never heard this group, then you are missing out!! Check out this group when you get the chance.
Excellent! The best Avalon CD Jul 23, 2005
I think this is Avalon's best CD, which also includes The Creed. I love every song on here, and they are all upbeat and catchy with FANTASTIC singing!!! Avalon has a way with blending harmony perfectly, and that's what really makes them one of the best. They are at the top of Christian charts for a reason.
