With the upsurge of interest in gospel I suspect this release WON'T be one to rise to the top of the pile. The problem is the limitations of Ms Stancil's voice - she sounds shrill and brittle on the lugubrious ballads and shrill and sharp on the up tempo stormers like "Sanctify Me Holy". To make the situation worse, Kevin Stancil who duets with the good lady on the opening ballad "More Like You" is flat. A good choir (the Shaback Fellowship Choir of New Jersey - uncredited on the front sleeve) and some hot piano simply don't compensate for Lorraine's shrilly unmusical shrieking.
