Lost in Wonder: Voices of Worship continues the Christian pop tradition of trio albums descended from 1994's much lauded Along the Road, which featured the vocals of Susan Ashton, Margaret Becker, and Christine Denté. This project reunites two of the three, with the long-absent Michelle Tumes stepping in for Becker. And Lost in Wonder also takes on a more worshipful tone that more closely resembles recent collaborative projects like 1999's Heaven & Earth (produced by John Hartley like this album) and the Celtic-flavored In Christ Alone from 2002.

Compared to the original songs of Along the Road though, Lost in Wonder is unfortunately saddled with unimaginative arrangements of popular-but-over-covered songs like Matt Redman's "Once Again," Keith Getty's "In Christ Alone," Stuart Towend's "Beautiful Saviour," and the Tim Hughes originals "Here I Am to Worship" and "Beautiful One." The production quality is fine and all three women sing well. Yet assuming most people already have these songs on at least one other CD somewhere, there's just nothing really enticing or compelling beyond who sings lead on a given track. And while the vocalists all have pleasant and distinctive tones, none of them really showcase their abilities with a knockout performance.

Lost in Wonder still delivers some good original material. "Higher Throne" and "I Believe in You" both benefit from sweet and memorable melodies, and the catchy "I Will Never Be the Same" utilizes the unique vocal stylings of all three singers to good effect. Both "Outrageous Grace" and "For You" demonstrate what Tumes needs to do to retain/regain her audience, in contrast to her programmed rendition of "Beautiful One." Some worship services could benefit from the few highlights.

They're Back!!!

"Awesome album. I have been waiting years to hear something from Susan Ashton and finally it's here. I am very glad I bought this album. I have already been hearing this album playing on Christian radio. What would be awesome is if the they would go on a concert tour again. I would be first in line for a ticket. I pray Susan Ashton works on a new Christian album (You have been deeply missed -- in the Christian music realm). Michelle Tumes rocks in Outrageous Grace. You will be blessed by this one that is for sure. I am pumped. Start requesting this thing from your radio station. Get the word out that Susan is back!"
Buy this if for only ONE song: "How Loved Am I"

"I was driving, listening to music, running errands, feeling just fine in life. Nothing spectacular. All of the sudden, my mind was riveted to the song that was playing on the CD, "How Loved Am I". The words to the song - a new way of saying the 23rd Psalm - totally captivated me and totally broke me. I had to pull over to the side of the road, rewind the song to the beginning, and really listen. It blew me away. Christine Dente nailed it, you can even hear the cry in her voice. If ever I doubted that Jesus loved me, this song totally crushed those feelings. I was overcome with emotion by this song, and ended up, sitting along the side of the road in my car, sobbing uncontrollably. I have been in Christian music for over 30 years, and cannot remember a song that has touched me as much as this one. How can I encourage you to purchase this CD JUST to hear this song, and to let you be ministered by it? It is truly divinely inspired."
