AllMusic Review by

Speak to Me was welcomed like the voice of an old friend. Geoff Moore created more acoustic adult contemporary pop on this third solo offering. Where buddy Steven Curtis Chapman kept electric guitar at the center of his sound, Moore continued to drift toward a rootsy, acoustic style to share his praise. By this point, no one dared to question the quality of Moore's songwriting. His glorious praise on tracks like "Your Day" and "Every Single One" shines through without requiring interpretation. The only misgiving is the lack of innovation after a five-year hiatus. After two decades of high expectations, listeners might wonder why Moore settled for four cover tracks and never varied the song tempo. Regardless, the album, which works much like a collection of Chapman's lighter hits from the late '90s, still resounds with the touch of a master's craft. Moore's earnestness and testimony make this another proud feather in his cap.
