Lol Zelda!

Timothy really opened his heart and soul when he wrote these songs. When I listen to them I get a sense that I am looking through a window to his private life.

oh yeah you're so right...that's why it's so special to his fans...and I love the fact that he made it all at his home..and had anyone who was going to be on it come to his house to record...I read somewhere where someone (I don't remember who now) wanted to be on it but couldn't make it to his house and Timothy declined to to have the person do the recording elsewhere...he wanted it all done at his house...very intimate...love it....

I think they would. Alison is a local girl who made it big. She is from Champaign, IL, about 35 miles from me. We tried to get tickets the last time she came home to perform, but they were sold out within minutes!

Yesterday was an absolutely GORGEOUS day here, and I actually thought about a certain Sunday almost exactly 3 years ago that I and a couple Borderers made a journey to Chicago to hear this album sung live before it's release 2 days later. I (and I'm pretty sure all the other Borderers who were there) were awestruck but the whole experience and the songs. I know, I sure was.

I remember thinking the 2 songs we had already heard from it, Parachute and White Boy will surely be my favorites he'll play... till I heard Secular Praise. There isn't a bad song on this album and most of it is nothing short of spectacular.

Thank you, Timothy! I love all of your albums but this one is so special to me.

You don't have Expando yet? What are you waiting for? Seriously, I think most of us here would agree, it is, by far, the best TBS album of all. It's all him and it shines through.
