How does Travail keep on coming up with such HOT choir albums? The answer is largely the awesome talent of John P Kee, who must cram 48 hours into every day judging from the prolific flow of recording projects emanating from gospel's brightest new star. In addition to producing this he lends his gaspingly soulful baritone voice (which, if you haven't heard yet uncool reader, is a must to investigate even if it means selling your albums by soul second raters like Luther Vandross and Alexander O'Neal) to the several songs here. He lets some devastating sisters do some wailing, too. Nothing too contemporary in the arrangements though the band is as tight as the drummer's snare and the fervour has reached ecstasy level before the shout-down-the-church closer "Call Him Up". A blistering album.
