Jennifer Knapp – Letting Go


To be honest, I picked up Jennifer Knapp’s latest album because of the controversy. I’ve never been a huge fan of her music. She’s written songs I’ve enjoy but as a whole, her albums never clicked with me. Letting Go does. A seven year break from music seems to have done Knapp a world of good.

Letting Go is solid from start to finish. The album doesn’t come off as defensive or angry aside from a handful of tracks. Inside, Better Off, and If It Made a Difference are songs where Knapp addresses the controversy of her recent admission of being a lesbian. The rest of the record are songs about a struggle between faith and earthly love and happiness and how to balance them. Letting Go is Knapp’s most complete record to date.

From start to finish Letting Go is a smart and beautiful pop record. The first 4 songs on the album couldn’t be better. You couldn’t have asked for a better record from Knapp after her hiatus. It’s a reintroduction and it’s amazing.
