Michael English's Heaven to Earth is an exquisite album. It's pop music in the best possible sense: for the people, popular. It has an always timely message of forgiveness, compassion, and faithfulness. This album follows a great deal of upheaval in English's life, and his choice of material reflects that. His first track, "Finally Free," is an upbeat song with a tiny hint of country to it. The title song is one of the high points of the album. It's a dramatic song with a lush orchestral sound. The orchestration appears at several points throughout the album, adding depth to an already solid musical work. "To Live On" is a ballad with good pacing; it crescendos nicely into full choral sound. "Always Be There" has an atmospheric, contemporary sound, without being trite. The only truly weak track is "How Grace Feels," a song that tries just too hard to be trendy. Whatever English's past choices were, this album urges forgiveness and compassion, and is well worth it.
