Worth thte Price of Admission  Oct 15, 2006
Not as good as his last two albums, but as the usual Shawm McDonald The Rider on the White Horse is worth the price of admission alone on this album. You do not get any more spiritual than this when you hear this and imagine Jesus on His White horse, riding in a haunting rythmic style that makes you look up at the heavens in the middle of sunset watching and waiting for His return. This song alone and Ramblings of a Beggar are worth the the admission of the CD. Don't miss your chance to be blessed.
Almost as Good...  Sep 18, 2006
Shawn Mcdonalds "Ripen" is an album that soothes the ears and the soul. The lyrics are very real and you can tell he very much draws on personal experience with his songwriting.

I do agree with one other reviewer who claims that Shawns songs all have the same kind of sound. Although, I dont think thats a bad thing. The album isnt all over the place. It gives it a sense of unity. Its a very calm album, with only a couple being more upbeat.

I gave this album 4 stars, which I really think four and a half is a more proper rating. "Simply Nothing" one of Shawns other albums is my favorite of his. However, either album is well worth the money.
From to this  Sep 1, 2006
I first discovered Shawn when his music was posted at and immediately ordered the two cds they had available at the time, Focal Point and Live. They were amazing. I was thrilled when he got a recording contract and have bought each cd released since. This young man has such insight and depth that you just don't see in contemporary music. I've just been blown away by him from the very beginning and continue to be. In my opinion this is as good as Christian music gets, in fact it's about as good as any music gets.
Awesome  Jun 3, 2006
First discovered this artist when I heard the song "Free" on the radio and was obsessed with finding out who sang it. I quickly bought "Live In Seattle" and then this album. Both are now favorites. Shawn McDonald combines complete honesty and compelling simplicity in his vocals and his lyrics. Thought-provoking, faith-building, and Christ-centered. Should appeal to all ages and tastes. This is a young man with talent and wisdom beyond his years. I look forward to more great things from him.
Simply Amazing  Apr 21, 2006
Something seriously lacking in today's music culture is "realness" and "honesty". This is especially true in the Christian market. But, when an artist is able to strip away these bounds, he makes music that makes fans truly attach themselves to in a strong way. This is the beauty of authentic art! Such is the case with Ripen. This collection is as real as it gets. The songs are raw in every sense...from their stark acoustic sound to the raw emotion in each lyric. It is like you are an old friend and Shawn is opening his heart to you.

His vocals are grasping. His pure yet rough voice pushes itself to the edge, at times even breaking, but providing a connection that is almost unnerving in its openness. The lush music is full and rich, while somehow managing to sound simple and bare at the same time.

Before hearing it, I heard one reviewer say he liked it as much as Sufjan Stevens. As crazy as this sounded, I am starting to understand. Ripen is an album that deserves widespread mainstream accolades but will not get it.

It is a great piece of music from an amazing young artist.
