This album is SUBURB. I thrroughly enjoyed his previous offerings, but this album is clearly his best work to date It is both inspiring and insightful. I tend to enjoy his slow songs. I don;t think he needs grand arrangements or tons of backing vocalist. His upbeat songs are inspiring and uplifting. this album is a contemporary work of art. he manages to be relevant and contemporary while staying true to his traditional roots and the word of God. I can honestly say that I like ever song. I have already purchased two additional copies as gifts. Totally uplifting and inspiring.

Smokie Norful is BACK with his 3rd full length CD and the return is PHENOMENAL. Smokie continues to surprise me with his masterfully woven songwritting and production--someway, SOMEHOW, he continues to put out albums that simply get BETTER! Very few artists are able to do this. Stand out tracks are "Celebrate", "Um Good", "In Time" & "Where Would I Be"<---I think I listened to this song a good 5 times in a row...it's incredible. And his remake of "Run To You" outdoes the Whitney Houston version!!

Smokie is awesomely anointed! I have greatly anticipated this CD after I heard the single "UM Good". Fulfilling my expecetations, it is accompanied by equally beautiful songs. This album stands right up there with the other Smokie Norful Albums.

I love Smokie's old school/new school flava. His music is enjoyed by all generations of my family. On the shout scale of 1-10 this is definitely a 10 (smile).

LIFE CHANGING is one of those CDs where the whole is even better than the parts, where the individual songs are consistently good, but together they are real good. Some Christian CDs have one or two standout tracks, with the rest mediocre, but not this soulful CD, no need to hit the skip track button.

The lyrics are not complex or theologically deep, but they convey authenticity, love and gratitude for the Lord, and are sung with that fluid Smokie Norful voice that draws the soul into the worship experience. The overall theme of the songs is that during good times or bad, with Christ we'll be alright and have victory worth praising and celebrating Him for.

Musically, all but about three songs are fairly mellow R&B (or "urban adult contemporary," some would say), one of which, "Run Til I Finish," highlights Norful's piano along with his voice (but it's strange to me that a song about running is so slow). "Put Your Hands Together" has a hint of funk. My favorites are the most upbeat songs, "Celebrate" and the peppy "Great and Mighty," that just leaves me smiling.

I have not heard Norful's other CD yet, and was led to this one after being introduced to Norful as one of the guest vocalists on Ramsey Lewis' excellent gospel/jazz piano CD, With One Voice. 4.5 stars.

Smokie Norful is one of my favorite male vocalists and one of my favorite Gospel artist. Ever since he debut back in 2002 with I Need You Now, he has been showing not only the Gospel industry but also the mainstream how a man can minister from the heart. His debut CD, I Need You Now, did a fantastic job of introducing people to not only his message of needing God but also his heart. It went Gold. His sophomore effort, Nothing Without You, has become one of my favorite Gospel CDs of all time, and the song--Nothing Without You--is worth the CD itself. Now, on to his junior effort, Life Changing, Smokie shows even more maturity yet again. While somewhat similar to its predecessor, Life Changing takes off where Nothing Without You left off and gives a powerful message. Of course, Smokie is Gospel, but his music is oft-times so crafted that it would work fine on a Contemporary Christian Music station/format. Even the booklet and the colors are nice.

Celebrate--Produced by Smokie himself and Jason Tyson, this rousing, on-your-feet opener talks about simply celebrating all that God is. It's a nice upbeat, feel-good song that kicks off the CD excellently.

Um Good--Produced by Smokie & Jason Tyson, this was Smokie's hit single from the CD. As proably known, its message is that with or without God doing anything else, one has to focus on the fact that He's been so good, and He's a good God. This song can definitely enable one to think about how they perceive God and what He's done. Sometimes, just looking back or just praising God is what we may need to focus on in worship/praise.

Great & Mighty--Produced by Percy Bady, this Caribbean-tinged, low-key uptempo is a nice song that continues to celebrate God's goodness.

There is something about Smokie's voice I can't really describe. I have a collection of Gospel CDs, but its Smokie's albums I return to time and time again. His voice...he truly sings to my soul! I can't stop listening to his latest CD. I listen to music in times of need and gratitude. I can't get enough of this CD!
