The Phantom Tollbooth

Music and more from a Christian perspective

Slow down, and have your change ready

Since 1996

Derek Webb's Democracy Vol. 1 & 2. Very few musicians would put themselves ‘out there’ with their audience to not only perform songs of the audience’s choosing, but also to compose around the original and pull it off with such success.

Derek Webb Feedback. In three movements, the musical offering is ambitious, emotionally moving, artistically generous, and wonderful to listen to (try headphones).

Derek Webb I Was Wrong Im Sorry  I Love You px90Somewhat tuned down, both lyrically and musically, this album is a collection of solid songs of faith.

Derek Webb I Was Wrong Im Sorry  I Love You px90In Keith Green terms, this is his Songs for the Shepherd after No Compromise.

This is a fitting tribute from one artist to another, of kindred spirits, often superior to the many other tributes of Mullins’ songs.

matt-wertz-snow-globe 90For those who love everything about Christmas.

Another hook-filled, hard rock album with an indie, singer/songwriter bend, A Way You’ll Never Be is the distillation of John Wesley’s past projects and a conception of music that is raw and unapologetic.

West has a new life and new focus, but this is a short album of promise not quite fulfilled.

Western Swing Authority All Dolled Up album cover. This is a strong CD for fans of country western music and enough familiarity with certain songs (reference Mancini) for fans of music, period.

Lisa Weyerhaueser Caught In Time And Space as reviewed in Phantom Tollbooth

Caught In Time & Place is just that, a rendering and memorial to a special musician now caught in a time and a place.

Despite the quality guest appearances, there’s not much to excite on this one.
