Overview

Warm harmonies and bright picking greet the listener on Mountain Heart's 2001 release, The Journey. This bluegrass gospel group has steadily gained fans in both secular and religious communities, due in large part to their impassioned vocal harmonies (at times reminiscent of the Beach Boys in church) and their strong songwriting. While the material on The Journey is almost exclusively religious in nature, the music swings from quiet, introspective numbers to wild and uproarious jumpers, particularly the exuberant classic "What a Time in Heaven" and the Mills Brothers-influenced "Gospel Train." The group shifts from contemporary Southern gospel to more traditional spiritual songs, but all retain the honest authenticity of musicians devoted to their faith and skilled enough to perform a variety of different styles with ease. Highlights include the album opener, "Wings of Love," and the similarly titled "I'll Sail Away (On Wings of Love)," both of which showcase their trademark harmonies and strong musicianship. When the International Bluegrass Music Association awarded Mountain Heart their Emerging Artist of the Year in 1999, they clearly had the right idea, because their debut was strong and their albums keep getting better as they go.
