Sacred Music From the Mountains features a variety of songs that evoke responses synonymous with transcendental experiences in mountainous contexts. It's a rather engaging concept, particularly since it's so abstractly executed. Many will be familiar with the songs on this album since they are longtime religious anthems, examples being "Holy, Holy, Holy," "Amazing Grace," and "Old Rugged Cross." However, as wonderfully odd as this album's concept may be, the performances are unfortunately lackluster and perhaps even faceless.
