If you like the music of Winans Phase 2 or even bands such as SOS Band, read on. Milton Wynne comes from a large family, many of whom - including both his pastor parents -appear on the CD. The sound can best be described as urban soul, with the usual mix of up tempo grooves and slow, slow ballads. For Jam & Lewis aficionados, the title track, Alright and No One Can Love Me hit the mark nicely, while Mainline contains a Milton rap AND a tasty Marcus Miller-esque bassline. Nice! Our Milton himself is a bit of an all rounder really, having written all the songs and played most of the instruments. He also sings a bit (with more than a nod to Fred Hammond), raps a bit and crops up in the production credits. His choir provide solid backup for the most part. At times they sound a little flat to these ears, but the overall impression is of a competent set. The only real problem is that R&B gospel albums like this one often tend to be somewhat predictable and even the inclusion of a couple of perfunctory remixes here doesn't really lift it.

I am truly blessed every time I listen to this inspirational cd. I never heard any of these songs on the Christian Radio station since I re-dedicated my to Christ in Sept, 2007. I'm not sure which Stations has this cd in their library but I would like to re-invent the wheel with this one. I will call the Gospel stations here in Detroit, MI and request either one of the tracks. If they don't have it, where can they purchase it?

I miss this group, we really shared a lot of time at a young age putting this project together. One thursday night at Choir practice, I was the only Tenor, and Smet was impress how my voice carried and I was ask to join M.W.&.D. I love reaching loss souls and turning them to christ.... My most memorable time was me cutting a step and doing my thing for God.... I hope Soon We do a Reunion tour or studio time.... As we know Milton Wynn is in the Studio doing wonderful.

Today was the first time I heard the CD. I neither heard of it or the Choir, but I was impressed. I hope Milton Wynn and Decision will continue.
