At first glance a simple selection of songs written by friends of Trace which she uses her accomplished pop/rock voice to present. However Trace herself shares writing credits on most of the tracks and in spite of the five (count 'em) different production teams the whole thing does hang together as an album. Her voice is more at home with bluesy guitar accompaniment ("Changes") where she is more simply just the singer in a decent r'n'b band but it also stands up to the test of larger, "Lead Me On" ~ like productions as in the opener "Stranger". The lyrics are well thought out with the obligatory scriptural references (does anyone ever look these up?), with one new thought about us being someone else's "Answer To Prayer". Perhaps this album proves that too many cooks don't necessarily spoil the broth.
