This album is absolutely amazing!!! I love every song on this album, and I've listened to it every day since I got it! It's really beautiful, and every song shows David Archuleta's power as a singer. I especially love "Somewhere Only We Know", "Beautiful", "Angel", and "Pride". But every song really was gorgeous, I could listen to them all day! I'm so proud of Elder Archuleta that he decided to go on his mission, even though I'm a little sad that he's going to be gone for two years, I love that he's going! And I also am glad that he recorded this album before leaving, it really is one of the best albums I've ever heard, and it portrays him in every song. I love "Begin."!!!

Each and every song on this album was amazing! I especially loved "Beautiful", "Somewhere Only We Know" and "Pride." Of course I will say "Broken" is my favorite! Last but not least, "Be Still, My Soul" really touched me. His voice is so pure and surely shows that he can sing anything. I will be a David Archuleta fan or life! :D
