Review by Rich Houghton

Here is my Song

It was the sheer weight of recommendations that prompted me to purchase this album (without having heard any of it), from people undoubtedly gripped by its contagious joy and passion for Jesus. Here is my Song is an excellent album with an incredibly appropriate title – it does exactly what it says on the tin! Each song reflects Kim’s heart for God so unreservedly and passionately; a clear snapshot of her heart’s cry to, and affection for, God.

Kim Walker loves Jesus, this is clear, and for me this is the most inspiring driving force in this album, as she continually expresses this throughout. Here is my Song is brimming with beautifully crafted lyrics, melody and music in memorable hooks and phrases such as: ‘You are all I want, You are all I need, everything my heart could hope for’, and ‘You are good, beyond measure, and my heart longs to give You pleasure’.

 

As a musician, what really appeals to me is the simplicity of songwriting, and yet freshness and purpose in how each song progresses. Throughout the album, each pre-written song is followed by a spontaneous song that flows with Kim’s relentless vocals continuously driving it forward. Chord structures are simple, and facilitate a constant flow of praise, whilst the musicians creatively assist in developing the song.

On an individual level the album is fantastic to play loud in the car (or on your iPod) as you belt out your praise to God. On a corporate level, the songs really catch the heart of hungry people to encounter God together in a fresh way.

Beautifully pure and uncomplicated, relentlessly driving and progressive, and contagiously raw and passionate. Here is my Song really is a breath of Holy Spirit fresh air.

If you like Here is my Song I can also highly recommend any of the Jesus Culture albums, featuring Kim Walker, particularly ‘We Cry Out’ and ‘Your Love Never Fails’. Happy listening!
