I tried an experiment with this and persuaded one of my more gullible friends that Amy Grant had released a new album and played this to him. He believed me. That tells you a lot about this album. Like many a female American vocalist she's been to the Ms Grant Finishing School Of Breathy Vocal Performances. Amazingly this does not mean that this album is not a pleasurable experience. The excellent production work of John and Dino Elephante guarantees the quality and if you want to feel the width, some of Nashville's best tunesmiths have written the songs. The title song is a huge ballad and that seems to be the place where Kelli is most at home on this album where she is letting the larynx loose. Lyrically, my favourite is "Only His Tomb" with its refrain "Only his tomb is empty/Not the promises he made" and throughout this CD Kellie has much to say about God bringing meaning to life when it seems most confusing. Solid pop, beautiful ballads and poignant lyrics give this album moments of true inspiration.
