Review of Ginny Owens’s Get In I’m Driving

Ginny Owens - Get In I'm Driving Album CoverI have another CD which I am glad to review for you guys today. This album is from Ginny Owens, three time Dove Award winner! “Get In I’m Driving” just came out earlier this month, on the 13th.

The album has a wide variety of musical styles, each one a completely different style yet the entire album is strung together beautifully. Honestly, I don’t listen to much music like this, but I think that this is a great album. Ginny has a great voice and is extremely talented.

The first song on the album and title track, Get In I’m Driving, has an almost Gospel-music like style to it. It automatically leaves a good first impression on the listener. The next track, Mystery of Grace, has a bit of a similar sound yet still very distinct from it’s predecessor. Before You Fly follows up and continues to impress the listener. It starts off a bit slower, and the beat of the song slowly starts to pick up to something a bit more poppy and energetic.

Rain is a deeper song than the one’s it follows, and has a great piano backing the mood of the song. This is probably my favorite song off the album. Ginny executes the song perfectly, and I’m sure this will be quite popular amongst her fans. The album continues with Joined at the Heart, which sounds like a song one might hear in a typical Church environment. Yet another song which is beautifully written and performed by Ginny Owens. I really enjoyed the lyrics for this song, simply excellent work.

In Better Off Ginny continues to bring musical diversity to the album. It isn’t my favorite song off the album, but it is still quite good nonetheless. Lay It Down brings a blend of Gospel music with a catchy urban beat to the album. This is another great song off the album, it comes in close to Rain as one of my favorites off the album.

With it’s mix of strings and piano, Higher Ground leaves a mark on those who listen to it. It has an almost epic and mysterious sound about it. Daughter of Destiny was a good song with an inspirational message, the lyrics may seem a bit repetitive to some however. Things slow down a good deal with the next track, Better That Way. Ginny performs it greatly, exhibiting her impressive vocal range all throughout the album really. Finally the album ends with the song, The Song. It is an acoustic driven track, wrapping up the album nicely and with grace.

“Get In I’m Driving” is a great album which I would recommend to take a look into sometime. It is great music with a message, something which is hard to come by these days. Ginny Owens is an inspiration to many, and if you haven’t heard of her before, I definitely recommend you read up about her. This was actually my first time hearing her or her music before, and I was left deeply impressed and inspired by her. Overall I give this album 4 stars out of 5.
