Larnelle Harris has been making this kind of album for years, his classy baritone caressing every syllable on of dramatic ballads of faith before building up to towering crescendos. The R&B groove that was introduced on recent albums is missing from this set, instead it's largely lushly orchestrated tunes very much pitched at America's 'insp radio'. I've long suspected that this kind of thing has limited appeal in the UK but the record companies here keep on releasing albums by Steve Green and Larnelle so I must be wrong. Technically excellent singing but one can't help but wonder whether all the histrionics are real.
