Having been a gospel group for very many years before they hit it big in the mainstream country world in the '70s and '80s, this CD finds the Boys coming home to their gospel heritage. The project kicks off with an excellent "Jesus Is Coming Soon" followed by a batch of many fine contemporary country gospel songs such as "I Know", the Dallas Frazier classic "The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor" and the country hit "Elvira". A couple of Gaither tunes are also featured - the much loved "Because He Lives" and "Loving God, Loving Each Other". Throughout this album the star quality of the Oak Ridge Boys' vocals are a delight. Clearly, the Boys are showing no signs of running out of creative steam.
