  • Recorded at The Bennett House, Franklin, Tennessee and Ocean Way Studios, Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Amy Grant's first full-fledged secular album since 1997's BEHIND THE EYES is a masterful amalgam of contemporary country/pop with her Christian sensibility, which underpins most of the material here. In songs such as "Out in the Open" and "Beautiful," SIMPLE THINGS is both a celebration of Grant's new life with her husband Vince Gill and an affirmation of the power of forgiveness.
  • Her 9/11 song, "I Don't Know Why," is a world away from some of the more unsubtle efforts of her contemporaries, with its "All I know is love" refrain, while "Touch" with its insistent guitar loop is a sensual delight. The folksy simplicity of "Innocence Lost" belies the complex emotions lurking beneath its surface--here it's obvious that Grant's faith is very much part of her life, which sometimes costs her dear. SIMPLE THINGS is the sound of one woman trying to reconcile her spirituality with her life, and reaching some kind of understanding with herself.
