For Loulita Gill
's second album, Poured Out
, one could draw two types of "pouring out." On one hand, it is God pouring out His grace and mercy on us through Christ. Songs like "If Not for God," "How Beautiful Your Love" and "Through a Billion Voices" highlight this. The other pouring comes in Gill's prayerful expressions for peace in troubled times, as seen on tracks like "I'll Still Believe" and "I Draw Near." Lyrically, the songs don't break much new ground from any other worship album out there. Musically, it fits into the synth-driven pop worship that's popular right now. Gill handles that sound well from danceable tracks like "Spirit of God" to mellower offerings like "Grace and Mercy." Her voice is also a standout, nailing the soaring high notes while infusing the lower register with gravitas. Though not doing much to separate itself from a crowded field, fans of worship music will find Loulita Gill's Poured Out
worth a listen.
