This project landed somewhere between alternative and folk. There are several good messages in the project, not just the same old same old in Christian music. The best songs on the project are "Revolutionaries", "Great Big Mystery", "Move Forward", the hit "All I Need", the Amy Grant cover "Lead Me On", and "A Voice Calling Out".

Bethany #1 Fan Mar 22, 2006
I love Bethany Dillon!I saw her CD in Borders and listened to a clip. I thought it sounded pretty good so my parents bought it for me for my birthday. I fell in love with the CD! I wrote her management and they sent me an autographed picure. I bought a Bethany Dillon shirt at her concert and she signed the back of it.
She has the most touching lyrics! I was going through a rough time and her song "Hallelujah" from Imagination really touched my heart.
An Amazing Voice Aug 21, 2005
This is one teenager with a truly amazing voice. With a voice like this at 15, it will be a real treat to hear it when it has matured a bit. She may be in a category by herself by the time she is twenty.
Bethany has the best super young voice I've heard since Lean Rimes first started singing professionally at twelve or whatever she was at the time.
This CD has a big advantage over even Rimes. Bethany Dillon has meaningful songs with well written Christian lyrics. With those words added to her sound, she has a truly incredible combination.
One interesting thing to me is the first song 'Revolutionaries.' On that song, her voice sounds a lot like Jennifer Knapp, who is one of my favorites. In the rest of the songs, her sound is quite different, but equally good.
Some of the songs that I think are particularly good are: 'Revolutionaries', 'Beautiful', and 'All I Need'. None of the songs on this album is a dud though.
Although I hadn't heard her before, I will definitely be watching for her recordings in the future.
Young and Absolutely Amazing Aug 8, 2005
Not only does Dillon have incredible musical talent, her lyrics are mindblowing. She says what we are thinking. In "Beautiful" it talks about our inner thoughts of wanting to be seen as beautiful, worthy, and lovable. It's amazing that at her young age she is able to express herself so wonderfully to connect with her audience. Her songs can also be very worshipful, as they all recognize God's goodness and point back to Him. I would love to meet this girl someday, no other girl at her age have I seen with such depth.
