Due to the title, "All About Love" and after reading several reviews, I expected this CD to be very mellow and somewhat sappy. When I first played it, I was in a mellow mood and wanted to relax. However, the CD is not what I expected. It is classic SCC, with catchy rhythms and as always, with amazing lyrics. His remake of the Proclaimer's "I'm gonna be (500 miles)" is just as good, if not better, than the original. "We belong together (Tarzan and Jane)" is another upbeat number. The song, "11-6-64" is a touching number about the day his wife was born. Steven has added two songs from previous CD's, "I will be here" and "When love takes you in" which adds themselves nicely to this wonderful CD containing 16 songs. If you are a SCC fan, you definitely need to purchase this CD. At the same time I bought "All About Love," I also purchased Steven's CD entitled "Declaration." In my opinion, "Declaration" is one of the best CD's SCC has ever recorded. So, do yourself a favor - purchase both...You'll be glad you did.
Reviewer Way Off The Mark Dec 13, 2005
OK, folks....I'm an SCC fan from a ways back and I don't understand why this album wouldn't deserve anything but 5 stars. "500 Miles" I could do without and I always skip over it, but that's the ONLY low point on this CD. This one never gets old. The thinking behind "11-6-64" is so smart and FLATTERING to his wife. Wouldn't all women love for a man to write about how our husband's life changed the day we were born? The fact that he's acknowledging God's purpose for marital love is refreshing. And the hauntingly beautiful "When Love Takes You In" (yes, I know it's a re-release) makes the entire CD worthwhile. My sister adopted a little boy from Russia and I plan on framing the lyrics for her for Christmas. Buy this CD, you won't be disappointed.
Steven Curtis Chapman, "All About Love" album Oct 16, 2005
A caring album, genuine with varied styles of songs from upbeat "I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)" to slower songs like "When Love Takes You In". He is speaking from his heart either toward his love toward his wife or singing of the love of Jesus. I enjoy all the songs on the album, I do not skip any of them when listening to it.

This album cannot be compared with other SCC albums. I did not like it much. I couldn't get my ear to appreciate the songs. They were too noisy. "DECLARATION" and "SPEECHLESS" are a lot better albums than this one.
Nice gift to his wife Aug 4, 2005
Steve Curtis Chapman's cd is a very nice celebration of marital love and his wife. It has some great catchy songs, but the last 1/4 is pretty bland.
The first and title song is a nice, danceable tune, and the remake of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" is absolutely wonderful. "Echoes of Eden" sounded oddly familiar, until I realized that it was basically the same tune as "Take My Breath Away" from "Top Gun." I doubt he realized that.
Overall this is pleasant, both lyrically and musically, but not brilliant -- hence the 3 stars. I doubt it will be around in 50 years. Listen to samples or borrow it, and decide for yourself if you want to add it to your collection.
