AllMusic Review

The husky-voiced Ms. Walker wails out her devotion to the Lord in this earnest and soulful set of pop/R&B/blues-tinged gospel. "Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad" has the sound of late '60s/early '70s soul a la Aretha Franklin, or the pop/gospel interplay of late '90s Robert Cray. "Nobody But You" has a bit of a reggae lilt to it, and "I'm Gonna Serve Him" has the languid, inviting, mellow groove of the best of Al Green's '70s songs. The musical backing is tasteful and understated--a small band featuring keyboards and guitars and a choir works perfectly. For those who like gospel with a touch of classic soul/R&B feel, BLESSING will be just that.
