Released a while back, this shows the Jakes franchise continues unabated with another selection of live gospel and some deep throated Bishop TD Jakes interactions. (“Jakes is the gospel Barry White: Discuss.”) Although I love gospel music, I find that yet again I’m left cold by another overblown set of unremarkable gospel songs. Despite fine vocal contributions from Darwin Hobbs and Israel Houghton and some nice solo performances from the house choir, this is a very ordinary album. I suspect that if this didn’t have the Jakes name attached to it, it wouldn’t travel very far. Huge choir sounds, the occasional histrionic lead and a selection of very ordinary songs create an album that my granny would describe as “all fur coat and no knickers”. It’s good on the surface but not much going on underneath and not really encouraging me to repeat plays. Even the stomping attempt at a show stopping sermonette from Jakes to close the album with the title track falls flat. Here’s an emperor of gospel caught in the creative buff. But depressingly, now the phenomenon has built up momentum it doesn’t matter what they put out, it’ll be snapped up.
