In a Different Light is simply wonderful. Avalon manages to be sincere without being saccharine; honest without being unfeeling. The four-part harmonies give this album a gospel feel, but the overall sound is unapologetic pop. Brown Bannister does an amazing job producing this album, giving a layered richness to their sound without drowning out the voices or the message. Their sound is infectious and moving, especially in danceable numbers like the title track, "In a Different Light," and torchy numbers like "Can't Live Without You."
