Reviewed by Steve Cox

A friend of slightly more mature years than your esteemed editor gave this album his unqualified seal of approval - praise indeed. Right from the initial rallying call to "Give 'Em The Word" to the final eulogy to the "Fairest Lord Jesus", the voice of Mrs Carrie Hodge dominates this tremendous set of R&B-tinged gospel. Nine carefully crafted songs provide a pop-driven showcase for the talented Mrs Hodge. A touch Beckerish when looking to the coming of the Lord on "Going Home", and "This Could Be The Time", even a hint of Gladys Knight on "Wake Up", her voice draws openly upon a variety of musical influences. But, the infectious nature of her righteous cry demands to be taken very seriously. Each track reflects a simple revelation of God's Word. So often, singers shy away from the clear call to proclaim the Word of God in the quest for street cred. Here, Two Hearts certainly 'Gives 'Em The Word', and it's great fun into the bargain.

Dear Carrie and Micheal, I dont know if you will remember me but about 15 years ago I had the privelage of going to your concert and i cant remember where it was bc i was young just about 12 years old. I remember carrie did an altar call and talked about physical and sexual abuse. I remember coming to the front where carrie came and talked to us afterwards about her own struggles and how God loves us so much. I still remember how much that helped me. Also a little while later we were so blessed to have two hearts visit our church UMC in russell springs Ky and then once again at camp loucan where carrie had me come on stage and help sing back up.... I will never forget carrie and micheal because they showed me gods unconditional love.
