Reviewed by George Luke

Subtitled 'Urban Praise', this offering from Integrity features the choir, Fred Hammond, put together a couple of years ago, putting a slight R&B spin on some familiar worship songs. For some reason, the album's cover artwork strikes me as a sort of sanctified version of the cover art on Marvin Gaye's classic 'I Want You' album. I don't know why; maybe it's the sight of all those colourfully dressed black people in wild abandon in a darkened room. Just like with the painting on Marvin's album, it gives you a sense (if that's the word) of loads of people celebrating something or other with all their might. I just wish Fred and the gang had packed as much 'oomph' into their worship. The album starts off on an upbeat note, then goes completely mellow for a few songs before picking up again. It all sounds pleasant enough, but feels more "business as usual", rather than, "let's go wild!"
