Uplifting poetry Jul 26, 2006
... is what this entire album is. Few other Christian artists have such an expressive touch with language, and the way Ortega uses his, in a down-to-earth, deeply lyrical way, when combined with his almost ethereal yet also rooted voice, should be heard by everyone at least once. With elements of country rejuvenated by Ortega's fresh folk outlook, the sound of this album redeems the ideology of rural America. And, also like rural America, his words can take on a nobler theme, rooted in tradition, poetry and history, as in the profoundly moving "City of Sorrows". Everything from the willowy sound of a close-to-nature life to the complex relationships between people, and further to the weighted history embraced by Christians everywhere, all is treated here, and lifted up in gratitude. Profound and peaceful, this album will impress anyone who lends it a serious ear.
Life-changing and stunning music. Listen, then share it with friends Apr 21, 2006
A dear friend gave this CD to me several years ago. I have cabinets full of CDs, but this is my favorite. My son travels by air over 2000 miles to university, and the first time he left home, this CD was playing on the way to the airport. It was dark and spitting snow. The first track, Traveler, touched us profoundly. We have played that song each time he has left home to return to college. He graduates next week. Music is a huge part of our family's life, but this particular CD has changed us forever. This music will change your life. It is that important. Storm is one of the only sure things in this world.

Storm is a great project for a variety of reasons. Musically, it is pure Fernando Ortega! I love the way he brings many different styles together to make a wonderful sound. Content-wise, Storm is good for the world-weary soul. Songs included:
Traveler; Come Ye Sinners- Poor and Needy, a duet with Amy Grant; Light of Heaven (my favorite on this CD); Storm; Cristina's Dream (Instrumental); Our Great God; Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent; This Time Next Year; A Place on the Earth; City of Sorrows; Sing to Jesus; Jesus Paid It All (my favorite of the hymns)
The more I listen to Fernando Ortega the more I love his music. I really connect with his music on many levels. In my opinion, Storm is one of his best projects he has done. You will be enriched every time you listen to this music.

I have this CD too and it is one of my favorites. Fernando Ortega is a great musician, singer, songwriter and arranger. I love every song on it and so do my kids.
