This is not your average worship album. It is popular worship songs played entirely acoustically, with no vocals heard on the album at all and guitar and piano cover the melody. 'Acoustic Reflections' can be used for chilling out with, maybe as a resource for a more personal and intimate time of worship. But also for those churches or small groups with no worship leaders or struggling to find musicians, it would be easy to follow the arrangements with a congregation. The words are also included so they are obviously keen for you to do so. The whole album is really well recorded and the different audio flavours are really interesting. Guitar, piano and cello feature heavily and they really create a powerful atmosphere together. It's nice to hear something that is meant for a specific purpose like this, but has been treated well in the recording stage. I would imagine a lot of people could really benefit from this resource. Featuring songs such as "Beautiful Saviour", "Lord Reign In Me", "Mighty To Save" and several other popular worship tunes. All credit to Wheeler and team for great production and musicianship.
