CCM hitmaker Holly has gone back to her roots for her second outing on her own record label. The collection of five traditional hymns and spirituals will be instantly recognised and other versions are no doubt in many readers' collections. The opening "How Great Thou Art" and "Amazing Grace" showcase Holly's vocals with laid back contemporary backing tracks and choir accompaniment. "Nothing But The Blood" ups the tempo with almost a skiffle feel which hangs over into "Jesus Loves Me" and the closing "This Little Light Of Mine". 'Audience Of One' sounds great and is a wonderful showcase of Holly's considerable vocal talents, even if there is a feeling that it has all been done before.
