Thank God for Minister Hall and his special brand of ministry. It's been 5 years since his last project, so this set comes right on time.

This is a James Hall set through and through. It's more on the traditional side than past projects, but this is 95% of what you would expect. Melodies that stick with you and in your head for encouragement. Tight harmonies. The unique phrasing of the choral parts that so many others try to copy (the combo of the vibrato, alternating softness/loudness, and "forceful choppiness"). Choral direction beyond compare. And a band made up of many of the same musicians that have caused the other projects to shine so brightly. This is what we've been waiting for, folks.

The only reason that I deduct one half a star is because the soloists on this outing, while very good, are not quite up to the standard of the previous James Hall projects.

But that is the ONLY reason and it's a relatively small thing, in light of the quality of this set.

Of note: Minister James is one of the increasingly small number of artists who make simple, yet intelligent, gospel music. The music here is often repetitive but what they choose to repeat makes sense and is beneficial from a spiritual standpoint -- contrary to what you often hear on the radio.

Example: today, many other choirs repeat phrases like "can't fail," "no limit," and other half-phrases that make sense within context of the song, but out of context it doesn't make sense. Minister Hall's phrases that repeat are "The joy of the Lord, the joy of the Lord is my strength" and "Mercy endureth forever," just to name a couple. See the difference?

I love this album.

Since I Laid My Burdons down is a good intro to the album. Simple song, gets the album started

I Will Dwell in the House of the Lord is my favorite song on this album. Classic Kevin Bond intro. Citadel tore this song up.

No Joy, No Strength is very catchy and you can catch a good shout step on this song. Melvin Crispell worked his magic in composing this one.

You Get the Glory-didnt really like this song that much but all albums have that 1 song you dont like

Wait on the Lord-the worshipful song of the album.

The Lord is Right There-churchy song of the album. Good choir track, you can take it to old school church if you sing it right.

Nothing But the Blood-Ok song, not a must listen but I like it more than You Get the Glory

I Need Thee-James's lead song. I like the song, I know a bunch of ppl that dont but I like it alot.

That's What He's Done-Melvin Crispell at his best again. This would be the song that they modulate constantly. This is my favorite song in terms of how the band sounded.

I Dont Know Why He Loved Me-I like the song, but more so for the message its giving.

What's Coming is Better-I like this as the closing of the album. Its mostly Dr Bond talking about Citadel.

Overall good album. If you like James Hall, you'll like this CD

I can't figure out why this album has stayed so far under the radar because it is phenomenal. IMO the best tracks are "No Joy, No Strength," "Since I Laid My Burdens Down," & "That's What He's Done." However, there are definitly more hitting songs on the album other than these. This is a very "churchy" album, songs that the majority of Sunday morning choirs can learn very easily. If you're in the mood for a great choir album, sew a seed into their ministry for this CD and be blessed!

Professor Hall and The Voices have taken Gospel Music back to where it belongs. Inspiring, powerful and uplifting is what you will hear on this CD. You will detect a little bit of the old Institutional Radio Choir on a few tunes. Could it be that Professor Butch Heyward contributed to the project as well? Nonetheless, if you want a good foot stomping and hand clapping CD, look no further.

Not a whole lot of innovation, some out of tune singing. I like the older James Hall much better (i.e., We are at War)
