Pilgrims & Prodigals

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
The members of Annie Moses Band would balk at having a Prince song title used to sum up the tone of their latest album. But something in the water of Pilgrims & Prodigals does not compute. At its heart, this Nashville-based septet is an old-school country-folk band, appearing on the album cover in closely matching outfits, brandishing acoustic instruments. But that translates on this record as a buffed and polished contemporary Christian pop sound. Sometimes, that works quite well, as on the stunning and simple "Love Song." For the rest of the album, though, the trappings of modern post-production do a disservice to the raw beauty of Annie Wolaver's singing, and the fine instrumental prowess of her bandmates. ...

At its heart, this Nashville-based septet is an old-school country-folk band, appearing on the album cover in closely matching outfits, brandishing acoustic instruments. But that translates on this record as a buffed and polished contemporary Christian pop sound. Sometimes, that works quite well, as on the stunning and simple "Love Song." For the rest of the album, though, the trappings of modern post-production do a disservice to the raw beauty of Annie Wolaver's singing, and the fine instrumental prowess of her bandmates. There are glaring examples all over this disc. The instrumental "Blarney Stone" makes a rousing Celtic melody come off like elevator music; their not-so-gentle gender switching "Girl of Constant Sorrow" is turned into bluegrass lite; "Where Do We Go from Here" is an odd, disco-flavored country tune given a weird, flighty vocal turn by Moses. These are early days yet for the band, so hopefully a producer will grasp onto the talent embedded within the group and tease it out. But until then, the Annie Moses Band will remain a buffed and polished work-in-progress. ~ Robert Ham
