Reviewed by Paul Knab

You have to wonder how much has moved on in over 25 years. Although there is massively more technology available and greater sophistication in getting any sound you want, in essence this album can be compared to early Christian recording artists 2nd Chapter Of Acts and Jamie Owens. Perhaps it's the old proverbial of trying to find a new style but ending up as same old same old. Prelude are Amanda, Rachel and Kara, a group of old high school friends who have stuck together and now fulfilled their dream by cutting a pop CD with Amanda's daddy, legendary producer Michael Omartian, being the helmsman. Vocals and interwoven harmonies are the obvious strength of this album with a couple of likeable pop tracks but there's nothing fresh or new to make this stand out from the masses. There are some pleasant moments with airy and breathy vocals, as in the title track but there are far better pop albums around. The slick production shows off some beautiful piano playing but overall there's no real identity, particularly when the girls attempt a more up beat R&B track and trip at the first hurdle. Some of the material is written by the girls but they have no great depth and show near writer's block on "Numbers" and "Green".

A young female pop trio on their debut album.

Prelude is defined as Ďan introductory performance, event or action preceding a more important one.í However, in this case Prelude means three talented young women with a heart to reach the world with a message of hope, grace and love.
Prelude is comprised of Kara Tualatai, Rachel Hockett and Amanda Omartian. Each of these women hails from strong Christian music heritage and has accomplished much on their own as well. Kara is a recognised artist with an established track record while Rachel has been singing since she was nine years old with her mother and father, Billy and Sarah Gaines. Amanda is the daughter of music producer icon Michael Omartian and noted author and speaker Stormie Omartian. Together they have a vocal blend that is unmatched.
Itís very easy to reference Prelude to other groups such as Point Of Grace and Avalon; however, the reference will also be made to Destinyís Child and Alicia Keys. Their first project, 'Learn To Fly' includes songs that uplift listeners as they walk out their faith on a daily basis. The title track is meant to encourage all to soar to new heights during trials, while the real issue of worldly envy is dealt with in 'Green'. 'You Call Me Yours' speaks mainly to women and shows them that they are exactly the way God has made them, and that He loves them and cares for them. The girls of Prelude round out their repertoire with their own rendition of the Beatlesí tune, 'We Can Work It Out'.
