The sixth release of Winans' gold- and platinum-laden solo career finds her in fine form.
The sixth release of Winans' gold- and platinum-laden solo career finds her in fine form. This collection of 16 worship songs displays her prowess as a singer/songwriter. Highly reverential and introspective, "Throne Room" is clearly near and dear to the artist's heart. The instantly memorable title song, co-written by Winans and gospel legend Andraé Crouch, floats atop crystalline acoustic guitar, percussion and gentle orchestration. "Jesus, You're Beautiful" is mesmerizing, ethereal pop, while "Hallelujah to the King" kicks with a fervent gospel/ funk groove. With each successive release, Winans continues to grow in artistic leaps and bounds.—GE
