Another big-voiced triumph for the longtime superstar, with plenty of shining moments as Sandi Patty takes fans on a surprisingly personal journey. It suits this singer well to go back in time and lay down a set of hymns and show tunes that play to her strengths. If nothing else, it shows how times have changed in the CCM landscape. Songs for the Journey is the type of grandiose AC pop that might have scored big in the late '80s/early '90s, back before the worship explosion. In the new millennium, however, though it was an absolute delight to hear her treatment of "Joyful, Joyful" and "Praise to the Lord the Almighty," it stood as more of a niche release.
