Melanie Bomar with Marty Rifkin & Rex Schnelle
A lively album with nice instrumentation and musicainship and strong vocals sung with conviction. Warning for those of delicate sensibilities, while not overtly Christian, the lyrics are mostly quite obvious and tend toward the didactic and anthemic. These are not always bad things, so if you like country rock and folkrock and are not bothered by such things, you will find much to enjoy here. (email@example.com)
