Joy challenges listeners lyrically in the song "Surrender" to daily give every area of their lives to God as they walk in the light of His love. The song "Desperate" urges us to depend on God for everything in life. Another highlight is the song, "I Wonder." Wrapped in a melody and rhythm that screams ¿radio hit,¿ this thought-provoking song asks how God could love us so much that he would actually die for us.

This Caught Me "By Surprise" -- I'm surprised I didn't like it better.  Mar 26, 2007
When Joy Williams first came out, I heard some samples of her music and concluded I really liked her style. This is the second of her projects I heard, and unfortunately I was wrong.

I will say others (see other reviews) liked it better than I did. But I wasn't hooked by this.
Loved it!  Jan 10, 2007
I love all of Joy Williams' music and this CD does not disappoint!

Totally Awesome  May 14, 2005
Ok I bought this CD after hearing her on a wow cd. I love this cd. My all time favorite song is number 8. She takes about the phases of Christ's life and how she wish she could have been there to see it all and that someday she will see him face to face in heaven. Wow talk about emotionally. I still get tears in my eyes. I also like songs 3 and 4. Its an amazing cd.
A "New Day," a new--if incohesive--new sound  Apr 14, 2005
On BY SURPRISE, CCM singer Joy Williams seems to have contracted a serious case of multiple personality disorder.

Williams's eponymous debut album offered a well-organized, unified collection of upbeat pop tunes and soft ballads. Here, Williams seems unable to choose her sound: Should she rock like Sheryl Crow, emote like Celine Dion, or wax ethereal like Norah Jones? Williams never quite answers this question.

Still, it's fun to hear her try. BY SURPRISE roams giddily all over the musical map, delving into rock, pop, heavy-hitter diva balladry, and soft pop music. "New Day" is a whopper of a rock tune, boasting a huge, dynamic chorus and near-tribal drums. "Surrender," too, surrounds a simple declaration of faith with an anthemic refrain and crashing drums/background sounds. Williams ponders the meaning of life in "I Wonder," another fine pop/rock tune, and "By Surprise" sounds like the guitar-heavy ditty Sheryl Crow never recorded.

As she moves into Dion's territory, Williams's vocal pyrotechnics on the orchestral "Every Moment" help the song transcend its somewhat cliched lyrics. "The Love of the Lord Endures" offers another, more successful foray into diva-esque balladry with a passionate declaration of God's power. "Desperate" and "Beautiful Somehow" tread on Norah Jones's coattails with their understated vocals and spare arrangements.

While BY SURPRISE may not seem as singular and unified as her debut, Williams's sophomore album is nonetheless a refreshing stab at trying some new things.

And change, Crow herself sings, "will do you good."
