You could almost hear yourself shouting "Let's have church" and "Glory!" to accompany this offering from Word. Passionate frontman Dr Charles leads an equally passionate choir in explosions of praise and worship. There's the usual gospel fodder - plenty of wobbly organ and strong voices. Some renditions drag a bit, but we can overlook those in favour of the bouncier tunes. Standout numbers to get your shell-likes around include "Jesus Will Bring Things Out", co-written by gospel veteran James Cleveland, and "Count Your Blessings", which undergoes a storming re-vamp. Try not grooving to this one - it's hard! The punchy "God Dit It" has got more groovy hooks than a nightclub cloakroom. This one really takes off! If you're not infected by the sheer passion of this song, then go and see a doctor! If gospel is your thang, this is the album for you. If you're new to serious gospel, this is the ideal introduction to start you off.
