Songs of Inspiration

ALA-Inspiration-200.jpg

Alabama has retired from touring, but studio work is still in the cards for the superstar quartet, including this long-in-the-works gospel album. Unfortunately, most of Songs of Inspiration is disappointingly by-the-numbers, featuring pleasant but rote renditions that add nothing new to some exceedingly well-worn songs. But at a few of these moments, Songs of Inspiration springs to life: a bluegrass romp through “I Am the Man Thomas” with Ralph Stanley, and lead singer Randy Owen’s terrific self-penned closing numbers, “One Big Heaven” and “Rain.”
