The Woody Allen quote, "If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans," has proven true for Matthew West. After 2010's The Story of Your Life released, he quit soliciting stories from fans, something meant to be a one-time event to inspire music for that project. But the stories just kept coming, and 10,000 new letters led to Into the Light. West once again proves his songwriting prowess, tackling everything from addiction to overcoming apathy. In the hands of a less adept wordsmith, this power-pop could become cheesy, but West offers up an honest celebration of humanity here.
