"Uninspiring" is about the only way I can describe Love Out Loud by Jaci Velasquez. Other than the Latin flavored selections Tango and Por Escrito the instrumentation is typical bland adult contemporary styling. Keeping in mind Jaci's mainstream appeal, perhaps I was expecting too much in terms of spiritually thought provoking lyrics but the two overt "God" songs, Jesus (The Way) and My Alleluia came across as trite and cliched. While the vocals are generally pleasant, Jaci's range and vibrance seem lacking this time around. Perhaps being the first project on her own label contributed to this album's weakness. While the colors of the garish cover art blare loudly, Love Out Loud comes across as a mumble amidst the cacophony of a very active Christian music scene.
