Be creative or just stop.
“Surrounded (Fight my battles)” what was the process of writing lyrics? “Yeah! Let’s repeat this over and over and over and make it a lead single! It’s so easy to remember, people will love it.”
What a freaking joke. All genres have their artists/bands that are guilty of lazy writing, but Christian artists should be ashamed of theirselves for being ultra lazy.

God's Love Is NOT "Reckless"...
I will probably buy the album, but delete the offensive song. Hebrews 2:2 and John 3:16-17 say enough to disprove the 'reckless' lyric. When this song is sung at church, I sing about God's Precious Love instead...
Thank you Michael for being obedient to the Father in writing such an amazing worship cd.

Such inspirational and music praising God with your whole heart! May you be blessed by using your talents to praise God and to bless SO many people with the gifts God has clearly given you!
Great album. Really enjoy it
Love each song.
THIS IS HOW I FIGHT MY BATTLES!
I am new to Michaels music! I just want to say how inspired I am by him and his love for dad! I once saw him in an interview and he said... that he wanted to never be offended! I was so touched by this, because I could tell that he was very real and genuine!
I have listened to some of his new album and God has really been speaking to me through it! I currently have been facing some difficult times and “surrounded,” has been my battle song for peace and praising God during this not so fun time!
“The word says for the spirit of heaviness put on the garment of praise!! THIS IS HOW I FIGHT MY BATTLES!!!”
Thank you Mr. Smith for your continues praise and honor to our Lord and Savior!!
Exceeded expectations, perhaps his best live album
I went into this album with low expectations. I thought surely this would be mediocre at best, but I have to say that I was wrong. This is a really good album. Perhaps the best of his live recordings. The two best moments on it in my opinion are "Light to You" and "King of My Heart." He even does well with the current "it" song -"Reckless Love" (although the diction and live audio make it sound like he says "Breakfast Love" - once you hear it you can't unhear it). I usually like Smitty's studio stuff better, but compared to the simultaneously released "A Million Lights", this one edges that one out by a mile. My only critique is that his original praise songs on this album tend to be two liners: a verse and a bridge repeated way too much. But even with that, there are some really annointed moments on this record. Give it a try.
I liked Michael's original music. Nowadays he just dilutes the CCM world with his version of other people's original songs.
