Michael Card – The Final Word – 1987

Michael Card was very faithful in putting out an album a year and this is that album for 1987. Nothing really of note on this album it is pretty standard work for him. Standard work for Card in this case included 3 top 10 singles. “The Final Word” and “Celebrate The Child” both made it to #2 and “To The Mystery” made it to #5. It’s a little difficult to write too much about Card but lets let his numbers speak for the album. Definitely an Easy Listening must listen.

One thought on “Michael Card – The Final Word – 1987”

  1. There’s a reason why Michael Card is one of my 4 favorite recording artists. Records like this are a big part of that reason. I’ll have fun listening to this while I prepare my school lesson for tomorrow.
