This 2011 album from the London-based gospel and reggae gospel singer who is today doing sterling work with a powerful prison ministry. 'Tranquility' starts off big with the theatrical "On My Knees" setting the scene for a collection of tunes which tell the listener about God at every turn. San Mi has a penchant for the dramatic in her songs and, whilst her vocal delivery won't be to everyone's taste due to its over-emoting, but there's no doubting the conviction in her voice. Reggae numbers like "Father's Hands" and "Do You Want To Be Loved" work in a dated sort of way despite some cluttered and clunky lyric writing whilst the acappella "I Was Meant To Worship You" offers up further variety without being particularly memorable. Some scattered spoken word pieces where Sandra delivers some fairly hard-hitting preaching sends this previously accessible release off into a somewhat bullish trajectory whilst an acoustic version of the opening track is included as padding.
