The lyric for the title track 'Listen', was written by Cindy's father Cova Morgan in the 1970's. It is a plea for people to listen to the Gospel with their ears and their hearts. 'Gravity' concludes that we need God's help to believe in Him and that it is crucial that we believe: "Dear Lord, help us believe now/In the true light, burning tonight/'Cause we won't survive/If we don't believe now."
'The Promise' is a ballad about the pain of divorce. At the other end of the emotional spectrum, 'They Say it's Love ("Stars")' is a jazzy, fun, pop tune about falling in love.
LISTEN is a fine pop album. Impressively, Cindy wrote ten of the twelve tracks alone. Vocally at times she sounds like Tammy Trent. I'm giving this one 84%.
