The Better Days project delivered. Jonathan Nelson followed up his last CD with a clear progression and breadth of his musical gifts. From the title track Better Days to Praise Saved My Life and Another Way, the spirit of the artist is very evident. This cd contains something for all modern worship ministries. There is something to praise dance to, teach to a praise team, use for a choir, or just a soloist that wants to usher in the congregation to prepare for a Word. You will immediately leave this cd playing and won't have to skip over songs to appreciate the message and the music.

This is another great project by Jonathan Nelson. Since he relocated to Florida, I wonder how the rehearsals are conducted with Purpose. My favorites include "I Am Your Song," "Smile/Better Is One Day," "Another Way," and "Expect The Great." Tasha Cobbs wrote "Smile" and it's a really nice song. It talks about wanting to make God smile because of our worship. The harmony is great throughout the whole project. One thing I don't like is the cover. I'm all for saving the earth and going green, but the cardboard covers are kind of a hassle. You have to be careful to not scratch the CD. Other gospel artists have also gone to the cardboard covers. Other than that, "Better Days" is not disappointing.
