Matthew West ~ All In (Review and Giveaway)



Hey, friends! It's been awhile since I've had a review and a GIVEAWAY! :)
What a nice way to start out the Fall Season! 

This time it's Matthew West's new album All In


Here are my quick impressions/what the songs are about,  plus a few bonus videos from Matthew West to give you the real story. :) ~

Track 1: All In 
~ No testing the waters here~ he's all in!
Story behind the song:


Track 2: Broken Things 
~ Encouragement that God can and does use broken things to accomplish mighty things


Story behind this song, too... 



Track 3: Mercy is a Song 
~ More encouragement~ Mercy is a song, and Freedom is a choir singing...

Track 4: Amen 
~ This one is a high energy tune that will be a favorite in my house. ;)

Track 5: The Sound of a Life Changing 
~ Kind of a cool auto-biographical song/looking to the future for other's lives

Track 6: Something Greater 
~ Another song about life~ (And BGV's by Carrie Underwood... :) )

Track 7: Jesus & You 
~ Love song to his Lord and his wife. ;)

Track 8: The Beautiful Things We Miss 
~ Encouragement to slow down and not miss the beautiful things... 
(Teary eyes are a possibility with this song... ;))

Track 9: 1 Song 
~ drilling it down to Hallelujah! Thank You, Lord! Amen, I'm made new! 
(In a style a little reminiscent of Nico and Vinz' "Am I Wrong" ~ I like it. ;) 
~ disclaimer: I know next to nothing about Nico and Vinz beyond that song. ;) )

Track 10: Power Love Sound Mind 
~ not rap, but spoken word with a melodic chorus~ not a spirit of fear...

Track 11: Never Ever Give Up 
~ Up-beat encouragement ~  a good, positive  "amp up" song.

Track 12: Dream Again
~ When the doors (and the World) seem closed and against you
~ an anthem of starting over and giving it up to God
~ letting Him show you how to dream again...

Track 13: Becoming Me (Featuring Lulu West)
~ another family-inspired song that pulls the heart-strings
~ (and Lulu has a very sweet voice)

Track 14: You Are Known 
~ written as a note from the One Who Knows...

Summing up~ the entire album is about being "All In" in relation to the Lord, to family, community, and even to his career as a singer/songwriter. From his liner notes: "... these songs are written in the hopes that they will be arrows straight to your hearts reminding you that the goal is to reach the end with no regrets." Essentially encouraging us to understand our position, and seek to hear "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

The album is now available for purchase. Great gift idea to tuck away for a holiday or special event.

More information...
Matthew’s heart behind the album:
Matthew wrote his new album All In with the goal of encouraging himself and others to get up off the sidelines of their faith and really live it out – to go all in in your time with God, all in with your family, all in with your community, and all in battling your fears that may hold you back from becoming who God made you to be. Along that same theme, Matthew will be launching a 6-week All in Challenge on his social media starting 9/18, and each week Matthew will be challenging his fans to go all in in a different part of their lives. What does it look like when a heart that knows Jesus takes a step and holds nothing back? How can we go All In in the places that mean the most?
