Bebo Norman
Ten Thousand Days



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 12 tracks: 54 minutes, 52 seconds
Street Date: September 14, 1999


For those of you in college reading this right now, understand the anguish that comes along with midterms. If you are anything like myself, you need time to unwind after studying and it seems like Bebo Norman knew that when he made this album it would be around the time when college students needed it.

Ten Thousand Days is a very good acoustic release. The songs on it are very reassuring. "The Hammer Holds," "Deeper Still," and "In Your Hands" are three of these songs. "A Page Is Turned" is a personal favorite of the slower selections on the album. It is so sweetly composed with the cello and various other stringed instruments adding beauty to the song. It seems to flow freely as though pages were being turned in a good book.

"Selwood Farm" has a country feel to it. I love the harmonica and banjo, and the way they mingled with the fiddle, adding a peaceful lightness to song. The song "I'm Alright" poses a question that has run through my head before, "What have I got to live for?..." However, musically, this song tends to become mundane and in need of some furthur rhythm changes.

If you are a fan of Keith Green, you will enjoy "The Man Inside." It sounds as if Keith Green had written it with Norman. The percussion in this song is incredible. At the end, the acoustics change and becomes almost a capella.

"Walk Down this Mountain" paints a picture of Moses' burning bush experience. But my favorite on the album is "Stand" - a great, uplifting song with a moving beat. Ten Thousand Days is the ideal folk, acoustic release to aid in unwinding and drawing closer to our Creator.
