Landmark are a vocal trio from the Mid-West of the USA who now are based in Los Angeles, and this 2000 recording is, according to the blurb, "soft rock/country pop influenced by the classic simplicity of the early Beatles and the charming flare (sic) of Shania Twain." Actually this is bland American inspirational music, with dull songs, dull arrangements and painfully bad vocals. At no time during the 45 minutes and 44 seconds of aural torture that masquerades as a CD did the Excitement Factor rise above absolute zero, and any resemblance to either the Beatles or Shania Twain is entirely within the fevered imagination of the author of such hyperbolic twaddle. There’s even some publication in the USA that actually believes that this is really well produced, with talented musicianship and professional arrangements; personally, your well-below-averagely talented church worship group could do better than this!
