A true concept album dealing exclusively with the joys, trials and tribulations of marriage, ALL ABOUT LOVE is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished and emotionally complex examinations of monogamous love ever recorded. One of Steven Curtis Chapman's least overtly religious albums, it is nonetheless ranks among his most stirring and spiritual efforts. Musically, Chapman is in absolutely top form, producing a collection of intensely catchy melodies as good as any in his extensive catalog. Though the production is as slick as ever, ALL ABOUT LOVE is never sappy, often recalling the finest work of refined heart-on-the-sleeve secular artists like Crowded House and Steve Winwood. Highlights include the Beatles/Elvis Costello-style workout of "You've Got Me" and Chapman's pounding, New Wave-ish cover of the Proclaimers' classic "I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)". A perfect gift for Valentine's Day or wedding anniversaries, ALL ABOUT LOVE stands apart from other romantic-themed albums as a mature and substantial work which reveals greater insights about its topic with each successive listen.
