If you think that Amy Grant's Age to Age is her best album, then you will love this one. Straight Ahead has to be the very best of Amy's earlier works. Even though this CD was made in 1984, it possesses upbeat and catchy songs that will stick with you no matter how old it gets. One of the best songs is "Jehovah" which talks about how if God gives birds in the air everything, how much does He give to us. And possibly the most well-known track is the song "Thy Word," written with Michael W. Smith. It is about God's word being a light for us in this crazy world.
But there is a down-point to Straight Ahead, and that is the song "It's Not A Song." Written by Gary Chapman, this song says that a song is not a song until it tears you apart and that our life is our song. The song isn't a complete loss but it isn't up to par with the rest of the project. The title track is about how there are many different paths in life, and you will be able to see God's light to get you through the darkness and into His heart. If you only buy one of Amy's earlier album's, this one has to be it.JFH Reader Review: Review date: 7/23/03, written by Chris Martinez for Jesusfreakhideout.com.
