Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

A former member of Teddy Riley's R&B supergroup, Blackstreet, Dave Hollister was recruited by the Def Squad after he decided to make a go of a solo career. Joining up with the Squad gives Hollister a certain amount of street cred, but it also has other benefits--such as getting Squad member Erick Sermon to produce three tracks and Redman to produce another (albeit the intro). With his set of pipes, though--high, pleading, and wrought with emotion--Hollister might not have needed the hook-up. He moves a little fast sometimes, as on "Round & Round," where the backing vocalist is "taking off your clothes" and asking to "sex you from head to toe" before the first verse even starts; on "Came in the Door Pimpin'," the implication is that he's not even willing to wait that long. There's also some sweet doo-wop, though it shows up only on a throw-away interlude ("Cheaterlude"). Overall, the songs don't always live up to Hollister's voice, but he's able to raise even the most mediocre material into something serviceable; hopefully, he won't always have to. --Randy Silver

His music touches the soul and is so real.

overall a good effort, not much that you can say about the man who nobody really knows about. the def squads first and seems to be only rnb talent in the camp comes out strong on his debut.
hollister, a former member of the rnb male quadrant blackstreet, spun solo after there 1994 self-titled effort, to make this album. featuring the smash singles "my favorite girl" & the overally explicit, but fabulous "babymammadramma", show that hollister, plans to stay around for a bit longer.
the rest of the album though really doesnt add up to the success of his singles. "i keep forgetting", "can't stay", & "my favorite girl" (remix) are really good tracks, and i like it.
the rest are just averagae songs, songs that i like, and some that i don't like but overall a really good effort. with just a little bit of improvement, i see this man going far.

He is the voice of the Blackstreet hit "Before I Let You Go," but he is also the singer who detailed his "Babymamadrama" in a song.
On his solo debut, Ghetto Hymns, former Blackstreet singer Dave Hollister seems comfort-able singing ballad R&B notes or ghetto hip-hop lyrics.
This album features gospel, pop and rap inspired tracks. Songs such as "I Can't Stay," a powerful ballad, "My Favorite Girl" and a slowed down r&B remake of the Michael McDonald classic "I Keep Forgetting" make this album music to remember.

This cd is not for everybody, it is explicit and brutally raw. If that is the mood you are in than this is for you. The lyrics are great to sing and the music feels good down to your toes.

Dave Hollister has surprised the heck out of me with this incredible foray of modern soul and R&B.Ghetto Hymns is incredibly powerful vocally, lyrically, and musically. The whole production is tight, smooth, cool and totally sophisticated. Hollister dishes up food for the soul, and beats for the booty. I'm not going to name them all but faves among the set are "Favorite Girl, Call Me, and Feelin's". Hollister proves himself as a talent with or without Blackstreet. Trust me, this album is special. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

AFTER THE FIRST TIME I HEARD D.H'S ALBUM I WENT OUT THE SAME DAY AND BOUGHT IT. I WAS JUST THAT IMPRESSED. DAVE'S ALBUM FOCUSES ON THE WHOLE RELATIONSHIP SAGA AND ITS SO NICELY DONE. I COMPARE THE ALBUM WITH A NICELY WRITTEN SHORT STORY. THIS ALBUM HAS CHARACTER(S), PLOT, THEME,AND STYLE. SOME OF THE SAME THINGS THAT MAKE A GOOD BOOK GOOD MAKES A AUDIO/NOVEL EVEN BETTER. AND DAVE CAN REALLY SING. GOOD JOB DAVE, YOU GOT A FAN FOR LIFE!

DAVE HOLLISTER NEW ALBUM, JUST OOZES WITH CLASS. HE REALLY HAS DONE HIM SELF A FAVOUR BY LEAVING BLACKSTREET AFTER THERE FIRST PLAYER. I HOPE THIS ALBUM DROPS AND SELLS AS MANY AS IT SHOULD, DAVE REALLY CAN SING. HIS SONGS MAINTAIN THAT R AND B FEEL WITH A LACING OF NU CLASSIC SOUL. WATCH OUT TEDDY....DAVES ARRIVED ...THE NEW KING OF R AND B. THE BOMB FOR '99. **DONT MISS THIS C.D****

The former front man of Blackstreet dazzles us with this sixteen track album that all at once screams in anger and cries in pain. This is what soul music should be all about. He opens with an intro featuring the always charismatic Reggie Noble (Redman for the hip-hop deficient). And this intro is very appropriate for this soul album is laced with hip-hop elements. "My Favorite Girl" is a seductively slick slow jam that chronicles the dark side of the late night creep. "Baby Mama Drama" hits us over the head with lyrics that ring true to every man who has ever written a child support check. From the beautifully lush "Can't Stay", to the genuinely soulful mid-tempo Erick Sermon co-produced "Call On Me", to the heart-wrenchingly beautiful "My Feelins", this album delivers consistently and at once makes you smile and cry in empathy. Dave has put himself out there, and the results are nothing short of stellar. Ghetto Hyms is pure satisfaction!

If you like Intro, early Jodeci, or Dru Hill ballads then you should dig this album. Smooth R&B with enough hip-hop flavor to satisfy fans of both.
