Cece Winans: Alabaster Box (2000)

(As published in the Times of Acadiana ... )

Cece Winans
Alabaster Box
(Wellspring Gospel)

Something in the patience with which Winans swells to a crescendo and the care with which she enunciates a cliché lifts these mundane lyrics and syrupy melodies heavenward. But on the whole the slickness that her four different production teams foist upon the music overcomes her as often as she overcomes it. Rating: Three inevitable Gospel Grammies anyway out of five.
