It does what it says on the box, it's simple and it's definitely Gospel. Clear professional arrangements, excellent instrumental work and computer extras on the disc. What more could you ask for? Well, the voice is only a little better than average, the selection is predictable, and quite honestly we've heard it all, in almost every sense, before. If you like light baritone, traditional Southern gospel this won't upset you, indeed you'll probably enjoy it, whether you'll pick it out to listen to very often, well I doubt it. This IS a very clear, Godly album, from believers - it aint rock and roll, but then not everyone likes that either! Sadly my all time favorite is one of the few arrangements that has been mucked about with - the more frustrating when everything else is SO simple.
