Contemporary artists always get a lot of play on radio. It's just a fact in Christian music. So it's no surprise if you've already heard some of Brandon Heath's debut album Don't Get Comfortable. With a style that mimics the likes of Matthew West, yet bears a slightly different edge, Heath can definitely hold ground on radio. But is his debut worth more than a few hit singles?
Almost all the songs on Heath's debut could potentially be radio singles, but there are songs that are definite hits. Songs like opener "Steady Now," the catchy title track, or even the worship-fueled "Our God Reigns," are all perfect for radio. Other tracks like "Simple Man," the piano-driven "Red Sky," or the calm, beat driven sounds of "I'm Not Who I Was," make Heath sound like he's been doing music for ages. At the same time, implementing piano into most tracks has an interesting way of making his music very approachable for almost anyone. The only track that could have been worked a little better comes at the end of the record, with "Beauty Divine." It's by far the slowest song on the album, and just seems somewhat out of place for the whole of the record.
Other than a few minor nitpicks, Heath has started off with a great debut. Matthew West fans will have a lot to love here, and so will most other adult contemporary fans. A definite staple has been made, and I'm sure we'll be seeing more of Brandon Heath as years go by.- Review date: 10/10/06, written by Justin Mabee
