Go West Young Man [edit]
by Michael W. Smith | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: January 25, 1990
 

Outside of Michael W. Smith's masterpiece, Live the Life, only 1990's Go West Young Man has brought him his deserved commercial success. "Place in This World" was one of the year's top recordings and reached No. 5 on the pop charts, yielding Smitty's first crossover hit. More importantly, it was one of the few contemporary Christian music songs to reach such heights in the secular market. Smitty shows signs of diversity with the gospel-tinged "How Long Will Be Too Long" and the beautiful balladry in "Cross My Heart." "Seed to Sow" showcases an anthemic hook that's hard to ignore. Throughout the release, Smith enhances his signature keyboard sound with horns, choral groups, and hot guitar licks.

Creativity and verity rule the Album | Posted August 11, 2007
Imagine, Michel W. Smith as a rapper, well it could have come to pass, because in his creative Go west young man, he does a verity of things on his CD, including rap.

Go west young man has creative music which includes pop/light rock, with praise and worship and, yes, a little rap. The age of the music is felt, as some parts are over done and songs overly extended. But it is filled with fun songs like "love crusade" and the title track "go west young man". Many other neat songs are in the mix as well, sadly though the song "seed to sow" could have been better than it was.

The lyrics are nothing special, but songs on the album are not as predictable that other Michel W. Smith discs. The song "how long will be too long" is the deepest on the CD, most other are only solid.

Michel W. Smith has creative music that makes Go West Young Man a highlight in his popular career.

Go West Young Man | Posted November 15, 2011
I remember this album because it was the first time I saw MWS featured on the secular music video programs with his single "Place in This World". This is a great CCM pop album and showcased MWS doing what he did best. I have heard this release so many times over the years that it's hard to differentiate what the official singles were that got released for this album. A definite CCM classic.

Of course, any album of Michael's will be fantastic, and this is no exception. I love the song "Agnus Dei."

I like this album. It's a bit more 'pop' music than his recent albums. The title song speaks to me because i think that we are all trying to find our place.
