Multi-award-winning US CCM star Chapman makes safe, commercial pop rock which inoffensively sells by the skip-load. His records have just the right mixture of sing-a-long hooks, cheesy ballads and polite soul-bearing that guarantees massive sales Stateside, and no small amount elsewhere. But herein lies the problem. I can't quite see the point of this release (one of a series featuring artists such as dc Talk, Sonicflood and Twila Paris), as anyone who likes this sort of thing doubtless already has these songs, and those who don't most probably don't want to. Taking into consideration the recent karaoke collection one wonders whether there is someone at Sparrow who has either found an as yet untapped market, or simply has too much spare time on their hands.
