An unusual approach to making a Pop Album. Natalie Bergman's latest Mercy is a tribute to her late father who passed recently. Drenched in religious imagery and devotional praise, it's clearly at once a highly personal and deeply sincere project.
For those who don't share Bergman's beliefs, it may not be an album that maintains interest. This is not Al Green. But the music itself is evocative and glossy and an interesting counterpoint to the norm.
