One part George Winston, one part J. Crew model, Jim Brickman purveys easy-listening piano ballads with tender themes and upbeat lyrics. On this 2002 release the "love songs" of the title are not solely romantic in nature--they could easily be addressed to a child or even to God. And the "lullabies" are not just for children, but for adults in need of a soothing respite from the world.
With the help of guest vocalist Amy Sky (and musical inspiration from J. S. Bach), lines from I Corinthians:13 become the graceful "Love Never Fails." The traditional children's song "I See the Moon" gets a sweet, lush treatment and a rare vocal turn from Brickman himself. Vocal group All-4-One gives its all on "Beautiful (As You)," a silky ballad that shares a hook with "The Greatest Love of All." The instrumentals--with titles like "Night Prayer," "Dreamland," and "Safe and Sound"--are all mid-tempo hymns of safety and comfort. While Brickman stands firmly in the pop music realm, his music inspires the same sense of wellbeing as many of the most acclaimed new age recordings.
