After seeing four songs from her debut CD reach number one on all three formats of Christian radio (inspirational, adult contemporary, and hit radio), Rachael is not unaccustomed to musical diversity. But if her first album can be called musically diverse, prepare for even more disparity on this new album...even within the individual songs themselves. Shaken one way, you'll hear signature power ballads like "No Greater Love" and "Give Your Heart Away," with the distinct grand piano of the London Symphony Orchestra. Turn it just right, and you'll hear techno/house funk with deep bass on songs like "For Your Love" and the opening piece, "Savior Song." Just a slight twist and there's Gospel/blues "Beautiful" and "Sanctuary" complete with choirs.
In keeping with the theme, Rachael's vocal styling changes somewhat with each song...you'll hear Mariah Carey-esque histrionics, sprinkles of Whitney Houston's Gospel alto, Christina Aguilera soul, even Britney Spears-style techno/funk (and I mean that in the best way possible). That's not to say Rachael isn't comfortable with her own style...in fact this album shows Rachael is developing a signature style of her own that permeates the entire recording.Read more ›

Overall, this CD was VERY VERY good. I hope Rachael Lampa has more CD's out soon!!!
Anyway, if you love religious music with a lot of pop and some rock beats then you will love this CD. It's excellent and don't let anyone tell you different. My favorite Rachael Lampa CD E-V-E-R~ (but her debut is so close)! xoxo
Rachael's other releases and how I rate them:
"Live For You" (2000) -- Beautiful. 4.8 stars.
"Blur" (2002) -- A mixed bag of cool and weird tunes. 3.5 stars.
"Rachael Lampa (2004) -- My first exp. with Rachael. Love it. 4.4 stars.
"All We Need" (2011) -- A complete disappointment in vocals and material. 3 stars.
This release = 4.8 stars.

I have a couple other Rachael Lampa albums and this is my favorite, the vocals seem stronger, but I'm not music expert, I just like it.Published on September 24, 2013 by InvaderZim
not sure exactly WHY this album has 4 stars overall. Lampa's vocals are PHENOMENAL in this 2002 hit. She could have slayed or kept up with many secular artists at the time! Read morePublished on September 18, 2013 by Mike
I liked the first half of this album, but the last half leaves a lot to be desired. After the smashing success of "Live for You", this album is a disappointment.Published on February 15, 2013 by Regmo
I'd have to say that "Kaleidoscope" and "Blessed" are my two favorite Rachael Lampa CDs of all time. Read morePublished on May 6, 2010 by Zachary L. Richmond
At points, such as "Savior Song" and the lyrically awesome "It's About You" gives hints of a Brittany Spears influence, and the album as a whole seems to be in this direction. Read morePublished on May 4, 2008 by Jeffrey C. Reynolds
I bought this because I loved "Live For You", but I didn't enjoy much of Kaleidoscope at all. Entirely too hip hop-esque for my taste, but I did like a few of the songs: Lead Me,... Read morePublished on February 21, 2007 by Jewel
