Recorded Live in a Chicago church, 'Shout' starts off with "Magnify Him", a bouncy choral piece of which the words aren't very distinct. It's followed by "Lord I'm Coming Home", led by a magnificent solo female voice. "Let's Praise Him", presumably led by the good Doc, is a call and response with the choir underpinned by a lilting jazzy groove. The slow, solo voice and mostly piano-backed testifying "I Can Depend On You" is one of the standout tracks. They all "go to church" singing "To Whom Shall I Turn" and the title track and get funky on "Automatic Praise". A female voice leads the slow, choral-backed "Lord We Give You The Praise". Then there's the groovy "hold On" with a chorus definitely borrowing from Sam And Dave's similarly titled hit! Ends with the uplifting "Right Now".
