4.0 out of 5 stars Selah's Boundless "World" August 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: I Look to You, Moments Like These, He'll Hold You

For Selah music knows no bounds. This trio has a way of amalgamating traditional hymns, r & b soul numbers, inspirational ballads, rootsy Southern Gospel, and modern AC Christian making these paeans their own. And they have made a career out of this. Likewise for their eighth studio album "Hope of the Broken World" the strains of these various genres interwoven in these 12 cuts. Featuring a bilingual African-English take on the hymn "'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus," this Christian trio effortlessly shifts gear to some inspirational indulges with the Father-daughter ballad "Moments Like This" and then to a soaring version of Whitney Houston's 2009 classic "I Look to You." Yet, they have not left their Southern Gospel/country fans high and dry. Dolly Parton's signature hit "Coat of Many Colors" get a ruminative read and they get all gritty with Buddy and Julie Miller's rootsy "Shelter Me." Not only do they blend together the various musical genres, they also harmonize with each other vocally seamlessly creating a beautiful vocal masterpiece.

Of the songs that really work include Amy Perry's take of Whitney Houston's 2009 comeback record "I Look to You." Written by R. Kelly, this soaring ballad speaks of looking to God in life's crashing moments. While Houston takes a more bombastic approach in her original rendition, Perry's interpretation explores the song's gentler nuances. Thus, both Houston and Perry give complementary glowing versions of this superior ballad. Perry again hits the home run with Christa Wells "On the Mountain." With a Miranda Lambert-like vulnerability, Perry acknowledges with great earnestness our need for God and his grace to get us to heaven.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed February 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
While the music on here isn't bad, it sounds like anything else you would hear on the radio. I have always appreciated selah's unique sound, so this cd wasnt what i hoped it would be.

Love it. I never get tired of the harmonies and always love the message. Selah rarely disappoints! I might suggest making copies just for safe keeping once you purchase it! It is that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!! October 8, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD for one of the songs but I ended up listening to a few of the other ones MORE!! They sing so beautifully and the lyrics are just so Awesome! It isn't just singing about "Christian Problems", it is praising God and giving Glory to Jesus and His awesome sacrifice. Isn't that what being a Christian is all about? :)
