Anita Bryant

Those whose preference in religious music runs to portentous chords or evangelical fervor may find this album a little too secular. Adopting the soft rock musical idioms of Godspell and Jesus Christ Superstar, Bryant makes songs like I’ll Be a Friend and I Can Honestly Say sound like love ballads. (The album does not include her long-promised recording of There’s Nothing Like the Love Between a Woman and a Man, however.) Her voice is pleasant, and the mood is relaxed and not hyperdevout. The album is her eighth for Word Records, part of the religious conglomerate that also publishes Billy Graham’s books.
