BRINGING BACK THE FAITH
The sweet, sophisticated melodies of The Innocence Mission are forever embracing of the human spirit. With this recording, appropriately titled "Befriended", they continue their smile-spreading 'mission'. The 'heaven's calling' track "No Storms Come", a startling moving piece is one of two songs that have a touch of melancholy. Keeping one's head up and looking into the face of adversity with a smile is the message one may receive from "Befriended". "Look For Me As You Go By" is the closing track, its prayerful text leads the listener to a fitting end. The Innocence Mission's music never fails to warm and comfort. Embrace yourself, embrace the world, and let the sun come in.
