Time Again... Live is more than a memory piece; it is a shared experience. Returning to Fort Worth's Bass Hall, where she played her first paid gig in 1978, Grant manages to make even her most popular hits accessible on an individual level. The track list reads like a Billboard collection of chart-toppers, to which even those who are the least familiar with CCM's breadth and depth could sing along. Hints abound as to why she has been met with so much crossover success -- admissions of personal love ("Every Heartbeat," "I Will Remember You") juxtaposed with mature reflection ("Oh How the Years Go By") and deeply felt praise & worship ("Thy Word"). It feels like more than a greatest-hits collection due to Grant's constant echoes of thanks to her fans. A supporting band of seasoned road musicians locks every note in the right place.
