I really love this cd. I'm obviously not married, and haven't been in a relationship in 2 years, but I still loved it. Every song on here is great. "All About Love" is a great way to start out. As the only kinda-rock song, it's a great beginning. "Your Side of the World" and "How do I Love Her" are awesome also. The cover of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" is much better than the original. I was surprised to hear it on this cd, but I believe it fits nicely. The next three songs are the best on the whole cd. "Echoes of Eden", "Holding a Mystery" and "We Will Dance" are absolutely amazing. I also like the redo of "I Will Be Here". And it really wouldn't have been complete without "When Love Takes You In". The perfect way to end it.

I really like this CD. 500 miles is actually one of my favorite songs on the CD. I don't really know why, I just like it. It's definately a different style than Declaration, but I think it's for the better. I gave him a 7/10.

I gave it a 9. This is a great cd. 500 Miles has always been one of my favorite songs, and he did an excellent job covering it. Also, 11-6-64 is just a really cool song to me for some reason, and "we will dance" is almost up there with "I will be here" although that's still the greatest love song of all time.

In Him,
<>< Stephen

I Will Be Here is a great song, and there are a few good songs, but I still find it to be typical SCC. I give it a 6. And by the way, I completely disliked the 500 miles cover.

This one was a marriage saver!

Contrary to SCC who seems to hit the nail on the head each time, I'm an oaf! I bought the CD for my wife as a Valentine's gift (I think), and the music was such an excellent expression of what I really wanted to say, but didn't know how! My wife like it also

Some people may have complaints about the theme of the CD, because it isn't really for a general audience. However, it's almost impossible to find any Christian music with a romance theme! Romantic secular music sends out the wrong message altogether, and seems to focus on sexual encounters which are totally out of God's plan for us.

Thumbs down Not 'Christian' Enough

Although I think that Steven Curtis Chapman is one of the most talented artists in the CCM world, I would prefer if he stuck to more Christian themes. The title track, All About Love, is the only song I like on the CD besides 500 Miles , because it mentions God.
But I agree with what John Pearce said (twice) in a previous post. There isn't a lot of Christian romantic music, and what SCC has to say can really make a difference in people's lives.

My rating: 7/10

My verdict: Not 'Christian' enough for me, and too slow for my musical tastes. There is some room in this world, however, for a romantic Christian CD, so I guess All About Love fits that bill. If that's what you need, you won't be disappointed. If you're expecting the usual inspired SCC songs, though, look elsewhere.
