EMI CMG have seemingly found a small but (judging from the stream of releases in the 'Open Mic' series) lucrative market for Nashville CCM karaoke. But while it makes sales sense to quickly whisk the original girl group's multi-tracks into the studio to remix songs without the vocals it doesn't exactly make for exciting listening for a reviewer not intending to practice these ditties in front of the mirror or hold sanctified karaoke parties. The songs here, "Dismissed" and "Even If" from 2001's 'Life' and "Feel Alright" and "You Get Me" from 2003's 'Different Kind Of Free' are good with "Even If" and "You Get Me" peppy enough to make the dizzy heights of the Cross Rhythms radio playlist. The production too, by Tedd T, is first class.
