Amy Grant makes a u-turn on BEHIND THE EYES. She abandons the glossy production and synthesized sound of her last two albums in favor of a rougher, more acoustic texture and more honest and personal songs. The result is an easy mixture of accessible adult pop and down-to-earth folk-rock which dwells both on broad spirituality and human relationships.
This album is likely to please Grant's more recent fans just as it delights her older ones, who remember her acoustic and Christian-rock roots. Despite the often palpable sadness on BEHIND THE EYES, Grant retains her endless buoyant optimism and faith. On "Somewhere Down the Road," she sings with typical shimmering assurance "Though we cannot see it now/Somewhere down the road/You will find mighty arms reaching for you/And they will hold the answers at the end of the road."
