Welcome Back! | Posted December 26, 2011 Staff Reviewer
Of all the artists that hit it big around the start of the new decade, I've missed Rachael Lampa the most. Her voice is simply incredible and one of the best in our industry, but as Word Records continued to push her to more and more to an adult, contemporary sound, wanting their next Jaci Velasquez or Nicole C. Mullen, I lost interest. Rachael was a young woman who needed a deeper musical landscape to play in other than ballad, after overpowered balled. And on All We Need, her first new album in seven years, we're getting just that.
For me, I've almost had to be reintroduced to Rachael. After a few albums of not quite getting what I want, I've been taken aback by the fact that this is the album I've been waiting for a long for from Rachael and she delievers wonderfully. The album didn't make my Top 10 but it's defintely in my Top 15 of the year. It's full of emotion, powerful lyrics, amazing vocal runs, and it's just a great pop, youthful album that allows her beautiful voice to simply shine track after track.
Welcome back Rachael! I can't wait to hear what's next.
