FFH
Voice From Home



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 12 tracks: 53 minutes, 57 seconds
Street Date: December 27, 2005


Jeromy and Jennifer Deibler, Brian Smith, and Michael Boggs have done it again. The still-rising pop band FFH (Far From Home) has produced yet another strong album following their previous releases, entitled Still the Cross and Ready to Fly. Voice from Home, the band's sixth studio recording, features the folk-pop elements that their fans love with an exciting change to it.

Essential Recordings' FFH has seemed to have gravitated more closer to the pop/rock feel than their past acoustic pop/folk sound. Their first single "Worth It All" is an example of both their old and newer sound. FFH's musical talent is progressing more than ever before; the songwriting and vocals are definitely stronger than usual.

The twelve-song album, which draws it's theme from Isaiah 43:1-4, features the dominant vocals of both Jennifer and Jeromy Deibler and an exciting amount of piano ballads, like in "Grand Canyon." Noteworthy on the album is "Great Big Problem," a more upbeat pop/rock song that vocally sounds similar to mainstream secular artist Gavin DeGraw. "Can't Let Go" will excite fans as it draws out the strong vocals of Jennifer Deibler. "Through My Eyes," has a fun pop feeling that makes the listener want to get up and dance; it even features a short and smooth guitar solo.

The album is rather different from other FFH albums and modern worship albums not only because of FFH's newer sound, but the foursome turns worship around to let us hear from God rather than us talking to Him. God has a message for us in this chorus, "…I've got a great big problem / You can't ever get to the bottom of my love / No matter what you do I can't let you go / I've got a great big problem / You cant ever get to the bottom of my love / Can't let yah go" (from "Great Big Problem"). "Well Pleased" lets the listener know that God is there and loves us through everything that we do. The first single off the album, "Worth It All," is a slower worship song that speaks love, peace, and security to the listener with a beautiful chorus, "… You are mine / You are loved / You have always been thought of / When you hurt I feel it every time, every time / You are mine / You are loved and I'm never giving up / Till I've dried all the tears you've cried / Long before you took a breath / I took your pain upon my chest / And knew your name I heard you call / And it was worth it all…" The lyrics present in this album are truly blessed and will speak wonders to FFH's audience.

Voice from Home, when it all comes down to it, is God singing beautiful love songs to His people through FFH. If you enjoyed the works of Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeremy Camp, Caedmon's Call or any other folk influenced pop/rock band in today's Christian music, you will definitely find joy in listening to FFH's newest album, Voice from Home.
