My Thoughts:

Out of the Dark might be Mandisa's best album yet. The songs are personal, deep, and moving. If you've ever experienced dark moments in life, you will find the songs encouraging and powerful.

I especially love the songs "Unfinished", "Out of the Dark", "Bleed the Same". TobyMac is another favorite artist of mine, so I love that he is a part of the song "Bleed the Same" -- it's a great song with powerful lyrics.

All in all, I really like this album and am so happy for new Mandisa music! I recommend this CD!
