Andrew Peterson – Light for the Lost Boy – Centricity Music – Releases 8/28/12
The tired grown-up, a little bit lost in life and maybe a little bit afraid, looks upon a carefree child and longs to go back to that uncorrupted innocence. But is that really a good idea? Innocence cannot know redemption, and we are made to go forward, not back. It is at this paradox that the multi-talented Andrew Peterson offers his seventh studio album.
“Light for the Lost Boy” is Peterson’s finest work. Lyrical gems are expected from this gifted writer, and they are here in abundance. Production has been expanded, and the resulting musical surprises are refreshing. And the remarkably consistent theme is poignant for every sometimes-weary grown-up: the longing for eternity and the glimpses of it in the temporal that bring light to our daily existence. These songs address this human condition spot on, resonating and sympathizing and encouraging. Peterson casts this concept in a strong visual image: “There’s something so beautiful about seeing the little boy inside your grandfather. It’s like, just for a second, he’s old and young at the same time, which I suspect is something like what heaven will be.”
