Review: “Wide Open Spaces” by FFH

I recently got a chance to listen to Wide Open Spaces, the new CD from FFH. Most people consider FFH to be a worship band. After listening to Wide Open Spaces, I found something different.

FFH has endured some struggles over the years. The group broke up in 2006 and was basically dead. Wide Open Spaces signifies the rebirth of the group.

This CD was clearly created from a different place than most albums I’ve heard before. This music was written from a very personal place.

In my opinion, this CD does not contain worship songs that would likely be sung around churches across the world. It does contain music that is very reflective.

This is music that speaks to the crossroads in our lives. It speaks to the feelings of confusion, loneliness, and frustration that we have all experienced. When you feel like you are at the end of your rope, this CD can help. When you feel lost, the CD will help you seek God to establish a direction.

The rhythms and instrumentation fit the tone of the lyrics. This CD doesn’t contain heavy guitar and loud drums. I found the rhythms to be smooth and light.

I have something to confess. After initially listening to Wide Open Spaces, I wanted the album to be so much more. I was prepared to criticize the CD for everything that it was not.

After taking time to reflect, I appreciate this CD for what it is. These are songs of joy. These songs illustrate how you can find victory in times of struggle.

Wide Open Spaces by FFH is available on Amazon.com and iTunes. Go grab your copy today.
