Maybe this isn't her debut album, maybe when she was doing all that touring with her itinerent evangelist parents she banged out 'Bullfrogs And Butterflies'-type LPs. I hope not. For I don't want anything to take away from the impact of this album, a fine, fine set where tender hearted ballads like "Love Sees" have the same kind of poignancy of the best Susan Ashton while the rock-pop "One Voice Now" opener could almost be Amy. There's always a danger that new singers get treated to 'sounds like...' comparisons from reviewers but to me Pam resembles a Christianised Belinda Carlisle. No bad thing while the production, from Robert White Johnson and Bill Cuomo is so top notch. The only dull track here is the cover of the Byrds' "Turn Turn Turn" but at least Pam does it better than Sheila Walsh's limp rendition a decade back.
