The Abbey Road Sessions - Click to view! THE ABBEY ROAD SESSIONS/THE WALK (2005)
In 1997 Steven Curtis Chapman ventured across the pond to the famed Abbey Road Studios to record a couple new versions of songs for his Greatest Hits Vol. 1 album. This EP features the two amazing tracks that were on the hits album plus a couple more favorties from Steven's early career. Also packaged with this release is a DVD of The Walk, an hour-long documentary on Steven's early career that was previously only on VHS.

All Things New - Click to view!
It has often been said that life imitates art. For many songwriters and musicians, this is particularly true with regard to inspiration, where the early years of their trade, much like childhood, hold a sort of intrinsic wonder and excitement by virtue of the fact that most things are being seen and done for the first time. As the years go by and the novelty begins to wear off, though, many artists experience a corresponding decline in the passion and drive that first led them to create. Read full review...

LIVE DVD (2003)
Not much to say here yet... it's just a DVD of a live concert. One of these days, though, we may have a review to cover it in-depth.

All About Love - Click to view!
Ah, Valentine's Day. That special day of the year to celebrate love. The day that couples frolic about holding hands, giving cheap flowers to each other, gorging themselves on chocolate, and doing just about every nauseating "lovey-dovey" thing couples can do. The day that the rest of us bitter, single people throw darts at pictures of our ex's and secretly pray that we find a valentine from some secret admirer in our mailboxes. Yet, as bitter and single as we are, God commands us to love whether we want to or not. Read full review...

[ SPEECHLESS ] (1999)
The humble, never-failing chart-topper and musical mentor Steven Curtis Chapman reexamines his faith and focus for a 13-track journey that has an audio environment all its own.

Signs of Life - Click to view!
One of the absolutely best singer/songwriters in contemporary Christian music is back with not only a new haircut, but a new style of music that redefines what he's all about. Steven Curtis Chapman's new style is self described as "early rock and blues", but I'd say there's at least a little country and pop music on this album.

The Music of Christmas - Click to view!
With revised classic carols (changed to fit his contagious pop sound) and noteworthy new Christmas hits, SCC works like no other on his stirring seasonal release. Never content to be wrapped up in a box, Steven opted to mix in his six originals and musically rejuvenated versions of "O Come, Emmanuel," and many other classic carols. Read full review...

Heaven in the Real World - Click to view!
On the same level as his current hit, [SPEECHLESS], this record took Steven to new levels with rock muscle and hope-filled songs. It begins with some dramatic soundbite splicing of news reports on terrorism and wars, hanging on Steven's friend Chuck Colson asking "Where is the hope?" Steven proceeds with the title track, a pop landmark that turns around Colson's question to say, "He is the hope."

The Great Adventure - Click to view!
Possibly Chapman's defining moment, the title track of this album solidified his status as a Christian music symbol and captured the newly-sheared man a new host of fans.

For the Sake of the Call - Click to view!
Inspired by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and an intense realization of the call of Christ and its accompanying sacrifices, this album is yet another reason why Steven Curtis Chapman has sold so many records to so many fans.

More to this Life - Click to view!
As a landmark CCM album, and as a time of quiet consideration between the more intense projects Real Life Conversations and For the Sake of the Call, Steven's third effort is worth seeking. The passion to question faith and culture on this album inspired many of today's hottest alternative bands...and stands its own musical ground. Read full review...
