Beautiful hymn | Reviewer: G.R. | 7/27/13
I did not know this hymn until I heard a snippet of in on the radio as part of an interview with Sam Amidon. It was so heart-felt and so melodic that I knew I wanted to hear it all and more of his music. There is a nice syncopation in the melody with a mix of acustic guitar and electronic background that serve to highlight the verses. This and Amidon's terse and off-beat voice provide a simple but very evocative flow to the song, cresting on an electronic 'hill' of sound that reminds of a pilgrimage to a high point where the spirit might be present. Beutiful overall, and part of a very interesting album by this artist.
