Item Description...
Steven Curtis Chapman has done it once again. Raising the bar to stratospheric heights and surpassing even his own lofty perch (see 1999's brilliant Speechless), Chapman has recorded and released a rich pop masterpiece full of insightful and relevant material in the form of All Things New. While not an artistic or stylistic departure, Chapman has surrounded himself this time with a bevy of outstanding L.A. studio musicians. Given that and co-production duties he shares with the outstanding Brown Banister, Chapman's end product is a lushly textured sound that rides an ebb and flow of drama throughout the release's dozen tracks. The title track alone is one of the best songs and best-sounding songs that Chapman has ever recorded, a mini-epic that highlights Chapman's special power and passionate feel for music. A guitarist (and a fine one at that) by nature, Chapman actually bases many of the tracks here on piano while topping them with a lush, string-filled touch such as on "Angels Wish" and "Big Story." As always, Chapman insists on keeping it real when it comes to where spiritual rubber meets the road. "What Now" reminds Christians that how they care for fellow humanity is how they care for their savior. "Last Day on Earth" is another track bound to challenge listeners to consider how well they are living their faith, especially if they knew today was their last. Chapman pulls no punches on All Things New as he issues a powerful and majestic-sounding call to arms for Christians to love the world around them as they love their God. --Michael Lyttle

More About Steven Curtis Chapman

Steven Curtis Chapman Steven Curtis Chapman (born November 21, 1962) is an American Christian music singer-songwriter, record producer, actor, author, and social activist.

After starting his career in the late 1980s as a singer-songwriter of contemporary Christian music, Chapman has since been recognized as one of the most prolific singers in the genre, releasing over 20 albums. Chapman has also won five Grammy awards and 56 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, more than any other artist in history. His seven "Artist of the Year" Dove Awards, his latest in 2009, are also an industry record. As of 2007, Chapman has sold more than 10 million albums and has eight RIAA-certified Gold or Platinum albums.

Chapman is also a vocal advocate for adoption, along with his wife Mary Beth. Together, they have started a charity organization called Show Hope (formerly called Shaohannah's Hope), that mobilizes individuals and communities to care for orphans through its international orphan care work as well as adoption aid grants to help put more orphans from overseas and the U.S. in loving, forever families. In 2009, Show Hope finished building Maria's Big House of Hope, a medical care center in China that provides holistic care to orphans with special needs. He is also a contributor to Compassionart, a charity founded by Martin Smith of British Christian band Delirious?.

Chapman was recognized in the Fall 2010 issue of Wood & Steel discussing the new Taylor 714 Signature Series guitar in honor of his youngest daughter Maria Sue. The guitar features the flower from Maria's picture and the word "SEE" on the 12th fret in Maria's handwriting. In 2003, Chapman starred in the Christian film Christmas Child.

Still solid  Jan 23, 2007
Chapman has really kept his music relevant in whatever decade he's writing music in. I have to say, some of the older stuff I still enjoy--not all of it--but the lyrics are still solid and compelling. All things new is a really refreshing CD, glad it's a bit calmer than the last few CD's that have been a bit loud--but that's where the culture has been lately: LOUD. Chapman is contextualizing well I believe, being true to Scripture, but remaining relevant in the context of culture. Good stuff.

Excellent music, excellent message  Jul 30, 2006
Steven Curtis Chapman is an extremely talented singer and song writer, and on the CD he has with him a group of superb musicians. The musical quality is excellent. For those of us who believe in the Risen Christ, though, even more superb is the content. These songs all carry a marvelous spiritual message soundly grounded in scripture. It is a great blessing to be able to enjoy good music with such content. One often finds that Christian music is not really very good music. This CD is completely the opposite.
It's good but not the best...  Sep 16, 2005
Chapman certainly does sound different. His voice is the same but musically he really took a fine turn. If one looks at all the albums that this man has produced, it really has changed. What makes this artist so great is that as time changes, his music changes too, however, he still manages to bring out his old style(original style) somehow...It just amazes me. There are few songs in this album that i dont really think it's all that great. I want to say that the lyrics are all wonderful(when were his lyrics ever not wonderful?), but some of the songs doesn't really connect with me musically. I just can't get myself to enjoy Big Story. It's cool how he uses Beatles style, but it just doesn't seem to sink in for me. Coming Attraction really caught my attention at first, but it just sounds like a quite heavy song that didn't really turn out too well. Those are the two major ones taht i dont really like much, but the rest..they are wonderful. He still hasn't produced a better CD than Declaration in 2001, that is my favorite hands down. This does come close and i'll probably rank it 4th after Declration, Speechless, and All About Love(in that order).

Chapman really turned away almost completely from orchestra. All of his previous albums were heavy with orchestra(it was great). This album, however, really turned away from it and used more piano and guitar. yea many other recent albums he made contained alot of guitar, but this album contains different style with guitar. Not as country and rocky, still rocky but more mellow(with few exceptions).

Bottom line i would say this album isn't one of those 'OOO SO GREAAAAAT' album by SCC, but it's just a really fun CD to listen to.

Btw: My fav. song on this album has to Much of You...
You make all things new   Aug 2, 2005
Steven weaves a tapestry of music, faith and his love for God. Unlike his other works, this cd is just musically fantastic and a joy to listen to. I find myself in a state of prayer and grace whenever I listen to Steven sing.

If you are a Steven Curtis Chapman fan, this CD is a must have in your Contemporary Christian Music collection.
His finest ever  Jul 12, 2005
Steven Curtis Chapman has been at this for a long time (since 1987) so naming this "All Things New" takes a lot of nerve. In this case, though, it's more than fair.

For the first time, Chapman wrote a lot of songs on piano first rather than his acoustic guitar (He actually plays piano on 5 of these numbers). That, and using top notch mixers Jack Joseph Puig and Chris Lord Alge, have made this an SCC CD that sounds like no others.

Vocally, he's taking more chances, swooping into falsetto and doing arpeggios at times, and the production's using his voice in new ways: filtering it, making it alternately breathy and full-throated. Electronics (drums, scratching) are incorporated as never before to give him another angle to his sound.

I'm going to take issue with those as referring to this as "adult contemporary". That's music with all the edges sanded off to make it "inoffensive"...this is just the opposite. This is Chapman striving to make ART...if you come along, fine...if not, he's not going to dumb it down for you.

The title track begins quietly, just Chapman's piano, before slowly building in intensity and finally bursting into a swirling guitar encased chorus. It's fitting that Chapman's anthem to God's creativity and restorative impulses is married to a tune that speaks of his own willingness to take risks. "Last Day on Earth" is a nudge to "seize the day" from a Christian perspective. ("If this should be my last day on Earth/How then shall I live?") "What Now" reminds us of Jesus' call for us to "do unto the least of these" as He's embodied in first a foreign orphan then a homeless man. ("I know I may not look like what you expected/But if you'll remember/This is right where I said I would be/You found me....what now?") "Coming Attractions" anticipates Christ's coming kingdom, but asks to be a representative until then. ("Let your kingdom come in me/Let your will be done in me/Here on Earth as it is and as it will be in Heaven") A Greek bazouki adds some spice to the sound and a stuttering guitar in the mix recalls Evanescence. "Angels Wish" is a tender ballad that reminds me a bit of Five for Fighting. Here, SCC tries to explain the wonder of God's grace in terms of His kingdom at large by pointing out that despite angels' proximity to God, we as humans have a better experience: that of those who have felt what it's like to be chained and then set free inside by Christ. ("The grace of God has raised me up/To show me things the angels long to look into/And I know things the angels/only wish they knew...")

The lyric to "Please Only You" is fairly gimmicky and a coming of age song to his daughter ("I Believe in You") keep this out of 5 star territory. They're not bad, but they are somewhat cliched.

He's created other fine efforts but I really feel this is raising the bar. The more I hear it, the more I want to hear it. I have the feeling in 3 or 4 years this will be acknowledged critically as his masterpiece. Highly recommended.
