I agree with Maestro_dmc. The songs are great. But they've squished the life out of the CD. A good dose of some narrow EQ can fake enough empasis to resurect some life of the tracks but they really did the songs and performance injustice in the mastering of this CD.

This CD is awesome. I got it at the release and it is awesome!! I advise everyone to at least listen to one of the songs on this CD, it can change a person! Chris Tomlin rocks! :whoa:

I thought "Not To Us" was amazing. It had a great guitar driven modern rock feel. "Arriving" has a couple of songs like that, but in general it falls flat. It sounds too produced and too much like everything out of Nashville. I hope that when Chris and the band make the next album they exclude any cliche Nashville-CCM and get back in touch with their genius that lies within.

While I love the songs, the songwriter, the performances, the production and the style, this CD is unlistenable to me. The mastering killed it.

It is so squashed beyond repair that it hurt to listen to (for me)

For those who have no clue what I'm talking about, and are interested, read this link about modern trends in mastering:[url][/url][URL=""][/URL]

[I]Arriving[/I] is a great album...I didn't think anything could compare with [I]Not to Us[/I], but Tomlin has done it again. He just knows how to write powerful songs...that are perfect for worship.
I can't wait for the Passion '06 conference...I wonder if he'll have any new stuff to unveil...

This is not an awesome cd. Holy Is the Lord, Indescribable and How Great is Our God are great songs, but the rest are not. This doesn't have the big guitars, passion, and consistently good songs of "Not to Us." I can leave "Not to Us" in the cd player of my car for a week and not get tired of it. "Arriving" has songs I can't stand to hear all the way through once.

This is an awesome CD. I would highly reccomend it to anyone. Everyone should have this CD. If you really listen to some of the songs, like Indescribable, it really makes you think. It's probably his best CD so far.

What a phenomonal CD. This CD is great from start to finish. If you are ever in a worship mood, this CD is amazing. I like that it has such a variety of styles from upbeat like [i]Holy Is The Lord[/i] to slow down like [i]Unfailing Love[/i]. Great album. 10 out of 10
