DON'T buy this if you want to listen to it on your computer Mar 28, 2006
I enjoy Chris' music quite a bit. I won't pretend to be a music critic but his music is simply excellent.
But there's a problem with this CD. When I try to listen to it on my computer, it launches a music video that takes over my screen entirely. You can't listen to the normal songs on the CD. If you try to go back to the work that you were doing before you put the CD in the drive, then the Chris Rice video stops.
That's right, you have no choice but stopping whatever work you were doing and watching the Chris Rice video. You can't just listen to the music while you do your work.
Maybe this is some kind of reaction to copyright infringement. I think it's a shame. I'd be surprised if it were Chris' idea.
But when I listen to it in my car or living room stereo, it's a great CD ! I do wish that Chris would put more new songs on each CD though. Many of these are repeats.
Come to Jesus May 8, 2005
"Untitled hymn (Come to Jesus)" is a great song! Get a taste of the album 'Run the earth...watch the sky' by Chris Rice by hearing about the songs.
Other side of the radio: I don't really like this song much. It's okay though. 1/5 Everything's OK: This song is really encouraging. a nice, upbeat feel to it 3/5 Nonny Nonny: Not so upbeat. Seems softer. Pretty good 3/5 Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus): This is a really good song. I love it so much. it is probably the best song on the album. I love it! 5/5 Smile: This radio single is really good. It's not really a ballad, though it's not that upbeat. It's abotut he longing for Heaven 2/5 8th Grade: An upbeat kind of song. Cool for driving to :-) Good 2/5 My Catherdral: I like the lyrics. It is a nice song. accoustic guitar driven. The echoeing is a nice touch, it makes him sound like he's in a catherdal! A nice tale of his past. I like the strings 3/5 Me and Becky: This is one of the best songs on the album. An upbeat tune. 4/5 Wonder: One of the not so great songs on the album, though it's not that bad. 1 1/2 /5 (That says one and a half out of five) Spare an angel: A nice song. quiter. Chris goes a bit too high in this song..sort of. it's nice. 3/5 Circle Up:I think it's pretty good. Not really a ballad, not really upbeat. It's great. 3/5
From Opposite Sides of the Universe Feb 16, 2005
"Run the Earth, Watch the Sky" is an exquisite set of pop tunes about faith and God. On most CDs, if there are 2 or 3 songs I really like, it's successful. On this disc, there are 6! "Wonder" is a joyful pop nugget with Chris' expressive baritone gently caressing the lyric, "Shall we dance from opposite sides of the universe? And we'll shine the glory behind all our spins & turns as we orbit our way through the sky." What a lovely picturing of man reaching for God and God for man! "My Cathedral" is a sweet acoustic melody about the joys of worshipping outdoors, "Here beneath the blue skies, I ran down to be baptized." "Circle Up" is a sweet melody with a delightful vision of men & angels all joined in worship, "Great & small, angels all & seraphim, grab a hand, twirl a dance, circle up & worship him!" It's a delightful track. "Untitled Hymn" is a comforting melody that starts simple with piano before the strings come in as the song builds from loneliness to joy. "Spare an Angel" is a song that touches a deep chord for those whose hearts are troubled and no human comfort seems to satisfy. It's an elegant statement of compassion. "Me & Becky" is such a perky track that it makes me think it ought to be a TV theme song. While I've cited my favorites, none of the other tracks are weak. This set by Chris Rice is extremely strong with a positive delightful vision. Bravo!
Excellent CD Apr 11, 2004
As usual, Chris Rice doesn't disappoint you. My family and I have enjoyed all his prior releases and this one is up there with the rest. This one in particular brings to mind a fond recollection of my childhood and my family.
I get everything by both Genie and Chris Apr 7, 2004
I got into Chris Rice's music with his former label-mate Genie. Saw them both signing autographs at a show.
I love both Genie and Chris Rice, but I have to admit that my all-time favorite CD is Genie's Higher Than The Heavens CD - I got that one with her awesome this site deal 4 CD set for under 30 clams!
I get everything by both Genie and Chris, and this Chris CD is really great. He and Genie are both so humble and it shows through in their voices.
