CD Review: Paid In Full – No Trace of Rain

February 03, 2010 By: Aaron Category: CD Reviews, Paid In Full, SG Artists, SG Music

Rating: 4 stars

Producers: Woody Wright, David Staton, and Gus Gaches
Label: Song Garden Music Group
Website: www.paidinfull.net

Song List: “Truth Be Told,” “I Go To Jesus,” “This Is The Day,” “Praise Makes The Walls Come Down,” “Lead On,” “My Soul Is Firmly Anchored,” “Waiting For The Morning,” “Light Doesn’t Make A Sound,” “It Takes Faith,” “Faith Moves A Mountain,” and “The Other Side”

Paid In Full is a trio that is steadily making a name for themselves in Southern Gospel music. They won the Horizon Group award in 2007, and this latest effort from them has been two years in the making. After thoroughly listening to the project, it’s safe to say that those two years paid off.

As my co-blogger Jeremy Bell put it, this project starts off like a Phillips, Craig & Dean CD, and is Ponder, Sykes, & Wright the rest of the way. The opening track, “Let The Truth Be Told,” does sound like it came from the PC&D songbook, and is one of the better songs on the CD. Other highlights include “My Soul Is Firmly Anchored,” a song featured on Legacy Five’s latest project that gets a driving country treatment and Gene McDonald on guest bass vocals, “Faith Moved A Mountain,” a touching country ballad, and “The Other Side,” the powerful closing track that has an understated sound that highlights Lance Moore’s smooth vocals. Each member contributes strong solos to the album as well, with Brock White featured on “Faith Moved A Mountain,” and Bradley Littlejohn on “Light Doesn’t Make A Sound.” Several of the tracks come from the pens of the group members.

Bottom line: While the project doesn’t completely bowl me over, it features strong performances and harmonies throughout. On the technical side, it is also very well produced. Paid In Full can be very proud of No Trace of Rain
