Andrew Peterson for Free!


For awhile now, I've been extolling the virtues of NoiseTrade.com, and now they have excelled themselves. Andrew Peterson, who I regard as quite possibly the best Christian songwriter around (almost certainly within the Christian industry), has put up one of this past albums (when he was independent) for free. You are also welcome to make a donation if you want. All you need is an email address.

I can think of only a few reasons why one wouldn't download this album:

1. I don't have internet. In which case, how are you reading this?
2. I already have this album. In which case, you can forward this to someone else.
3. I really prefer bad music. In which case, I have a number of recommendations for you, but will refrain from them in this forum.
4. I think there's a catch somewhere. Unless you consider getting an occasional email from Andrew (which I believe he will use judiciously) a catch, then I swear there is not.
5. I love his music so much that I cry profoundly at its beauty, and thereby become unstable and dysfunctional in my daily living when I listen to it. I have no rebuttal to this.

Haidee gave me the new Andrew Peterson CD for Christmas "Counting Stars" - I'm now a big fan! (especially when I found the LOTR quote in the CD jacket)

Thanks for introducing me to this. I love the song "More." He reminds me of Rich Mullins some.
