What a great album. I can say it was a bit unexpected how great it was. The album is nicely divided into two blocks. The first 10 songs features more traditional hymns, while the next ten feature more contemporary-Christian with a country bend. I've stopped listening to country because of the bro-ness and general direction and have mostly listened to Christian music the last 5-7years. Most of that tends to be more pop, so this was all a very welcome surprise (following Hillary Scott's also fantastic recent release).
The song breakdowns are great depending on your mood. Reba's powerful voice is very well-suited for the strong Gospel sound, better than most contemporary mainstream artists.
For the non-traditional songs, Hallelujah Amen, Sing it Now, and others are all rockstar songs. This wasn't just a last minute album thrown together. Great stuff!
