4 Stars Out Of 5
This CD is good, but not great, accompaniment.

While the musical instrumentation is there, if you want a great musical backup for this song when you are singing it for your church, then you are going to have to either record your own, or keep looking. While the demonstration portion has the song sung with a full range of background vocals, there is no track offered with background vocals for you. Add to this the problem that the drum track is too prominent, and there seems to be less musical instrumentation, when the song obviously could use a little more, and you end up feeling like you were teased with the demo and given a less thought out accompaniment. It leaves the back-up sounding like you only have one guitar player and a piano, even if there are more instruments. Instrumentally, it just sounds a little on the weak side. But, the biggest problem I have is that lack of a track with background vocals. To me, any accompaniment CD should give you both options - with back-up vocals, or without back-up vocals. That is why I gave this CD a rating of good. Excellent would have addressed these other problems. I can still sing with it, but I will have to record my own back-up singers if I want this to sound fuller.
