JFH Music Review




Michael W. Smith
Go West Young Man



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks: 49 Minutes, 52 Seconds
Street Date: 1990


From the first sound of galloping hooves until the synth ridden "to be continued" at the end, this album is a pop fans dream come true. This album is well produced (maybe a tad to well). The songs are all pop gems. It's such a refreshing album in many ways, Michael W. Smith is really starting to become comfortable as an artist here and isn't afraid to try new things (African children's choir on "Seed To Sow" is proof). The album has a flow to it that will keep you listening from start to finish. But - and there is a but - I could not give an honest review of this album if I were not to note some problems. If you're not a fan of pop music bordering on cheesy pop this might not be the record for you. Heavy on synthesizers and melody, this album is so sweet it should be bad for your teeth. However, in my case, all this only makes me enjoy this album more and more. Just try not to sing along to the quirky "For You." Truly a delight, it made me a Michael W. Smith fan!
