Praise is the theme of this album, quite a bit of which is as upbeat as you will find on many Gaither albums, but I found it rather uneven. It opens well enough with "I Came To Praise The Lord", but I didn't particularly care for "Jesus Loves Me" by veteran black gospel team the Barrett Sisters, which I found was too exhibitionistic. There are some nice tracks on this album, for example "This Is Like Heaven To Me", "Majesty" and "Dwelling In Beulah Land". The track "We'll Talk It Over " by the late Danny Gaither is very poignant. However, this is not one of the best Gaither albums I've heard.
