Let's face it, some inspirational singers are anything but inspirational. Yeah they have the soaring voices but their choice of bland poppy arrangements become so predictable that.yawn..zzzzz. Not Lianna Klassen! Consistently this most inspirational singer has created touching songs that stir the deepest parts of the listener whilst making music that draws from a variety of places. For this latest album, she has concentrated on a sound which has more of a Celtic flavour than previous albums but is no less diverse for that. "Let All Who Have Breath" is a celebratory opening whilst her duet with fellow Canadian Steve Bell on a Celtic version of "When I Survey" is one of the album's highlights. There are lighter moments like the acoustic "Sing!" and the praise song "You Are God And You Are Wonderful" then heartfelt songs like "Travel With Me", "Song Of Unity" and "Veni Sancte Spiritus" which demonstrate Lianna's range as an artist and singer. Her voice is a beautiful expressive instrument and 'Out Of Borderland' is inspirational music as it should be.
