As one of the Catholicism's most evangelical singer/songwriters, Maher is equally at home performing at a college or coffeehouse as he is leading worship. Here, the tunesmith spreads the "blue collar gospel" by conveying themes of grace and redemption to the downtrodden. Musically, Maher's a little generic, though he really shines on the gritty acoustic rocker "Turn Around" and the Americana-inspired "Every Little Prison (Deliver Me)," offering comfort to weary. Overall, the project showcases Maher's ability to seamlessly switch between keyboard and guitar.1
