This is Pam’s 4th and most successful album. It continued the pop sound she adopted earlier in the decade as opposed to her folk sound in the 70’s. I believe this album was produced with the goal of hitting the CCM charts and in this aspect it succeeded with 3 singles. “Unexpected Places” made it to #11, What Can I Do to #15, and Jordan to #27. That’s a pretty successful album. As usual the singles are just a little too worship oriented for my liking but there are some very good pop tracks on this album and that’s what makes the album worth listening for me.

The third album from Dennis Agajanian has a mixed sound.
Some songs are an older style, some in keeping with the style of the time and at least one that was ahead of its time. Oh and there’s a bluegrass tune just for good measure.
The lead and title track “Rebel To The Wrong” is an excellent tune and was a fairly progressive song for the day. Dennis Agajanian has been popular in the Christian Country Music scene for many years and he’s still going often appearing on several different television evangelists shows but perhaps best known now for his appearances with Billy Graham.
Track Listing: 1 – Rebel To The Wrong 2 – Fool’s Gold 3 – Child’s Cry 4 – Bigger Than All My Sins 5 – Milk And Honey Express 6 – Alive In The Sky 7 – I Can Do All The Things 8 – Daddy’s Girl 9 – Last Of The Good Guys 10 – I’m Thankful To You
