His debut album 'My Place Is With You' won critical acclaim and a fair number of fans formed the Crosse posse devoted to the man who sometimes sounds more like Curtis Stigers than Curtis Stigers does! His new album is seamlessly slick and smoothly put together like so many Nashville born CCM albums. There are few surprises but still much to give you listening pleasure. It slides with ease from the stereo speakers and slithers into your soul. You get some nice R'n'B tinged up-tempo stuff life "His Love Is Strong" and "Love From The Sweetest Cup". The voice glides over some nice ballads like the mellow title track and "I Found Myself In You" which go to show that when God distributed the voice boxes he cut Crosse a better deal than most! He clearly has huge talent and is able to interpret other people's songs. Though his brave stab at the Andrae Crouch classic "Just Like He Said He Would" could be seen by Crouch fans (like me) as something approaching sacrilege! Still, he should be forgiven because there is something pleasing about this blue-eyed soul and anyone who closes an album with such an invigorating version of Patsy Moore's "God Is Love" deserves more than a medal! Even better than his debut!
