Album Review

More than a Melody is a fairly unremarkable album. It's plagued with a pop sound that never quite showcases Adams' voice the way it should be. There are a few exceptions: "What About the Children" is quite moving, as it came on the heels of the Oklahoma City bombing; "Fly Like an Eagle is a quirky, interesting take on Christians awaiting the rapture; and "Take Away has a rich, classic gospel sound. Overall, though, the album is too long and the sound too bland to live up to expectations.

Who Provided the Album Review?

This album is relevent for its time and the songs showcase the beauty of the artist's voice, which has improved over time. At this point, Yolanda was reaching a pinnacle in her career. She is no less anointed on this album than any before or after. The sound quality and production are great in comparison with some of her earlier releases, which is directly related to her increasing popularity in the Gospel realm. Any fan of Yolanda Adams will already have this release and, if not, this is worthy of inclusion in your library. God bless you, Yolanda. I hope to hear from you again soon.

Love it!

By far, the best Yolanda Adams record recorded!
