Editorial Reviews

Those who remember Mike Farris as the frontman for '90s hard rockers the Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies will do a double take when they hear this unexpectedly moving comeback. The singer has radically overhauled his image, shifting from gin-soaked frontman to gospel shouter on this roof-raising release. What hasn't changed is Farris's powerful voice, even more potent since he cleaned up from various excesses in 2004. While the appropriately titled Salvation in Lights is a drastic musical departure from his previous band's swaggering, boozy approach, it's also a logical use of his soulful vocals and candid personality. The singer delivers the goods on a handful of rearranged traditionals such as "Oh Mary Don't You Weep," but when he rips into Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come," the song shimmers with a passion that nearly matches the original, and that's saying a lot. The oozing, swampy "Devil Don't Sleep," the restrained funker "Can't No Grave Hold My Body Down," and the Memphis-thumping "Selah! Selah!" add to the rousing, rootsy R&B groove. Farris is unexpectedly convincing throughout and obviously inspired as he keeps the faith on this stirring but not preachy album. He's accompanied by horns and a tough yet restrained band with righteous female backing vocals that perfectly position these tunes between heaven and earth. He testifies on his Staples Singers cover that he wants to "take you there," and by the time the album closes with "I'm Gonna Get There," you'll gladly follow wherever he leads. --Hal Horowitz

If you like good singing mixed with old southern style gospel with a lot of soul and blues blended in, you will love this album.

Former Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies frontman Mike Farris has returned in a BIG way with a phemomenal collection of tunes which bear no resemblance whatsoever to his previous work with SCW. Tied together by deeply spiritual lyrics, he blends gospel, rock, soul, blues & even dixieland into one cohesive unit. The material is ideally suited to Farris's soulfully expressive vocals. From the funkiness of "Can't No Grave Hold My Body Down" and "Selah! Selah!", to the pure joy of "Streets of Galilee" and "I'm Gonna Get There", Farris has created a great "soundtrack" to an even greater personal story. This collection is guaranteed to do your soul good.

What an incredible album. Traditional and original gospel music that is wrapped Blues, Soul, and the sounds of New Orleans. Good start to finish. Give it a listen, and like the opening tune say's.... I bet you Can't Sit Down!

I've been a fan and sharing Mike's incredible talent for nearly 15 years now. But, this album, is his best work. The range in his song selection, his voice on each, his emotion, combine for one powerful experience. Hearing this album makes it clear and evident that Mike isn't just singing it, he is living it.

I have been fan of Mike's former band for a long time and I was so impressed with his solo album. Just because Mike has found a relationship with God, doesn't mean he still doesn't rock!

Great album

This is, simply put, a great CD. Mike Farris' powerful voice and his backing vocalists blend well with the soulful sound of his band. While this is lyrically a religious-based album, and I am not in the least bit religious, I enjoy the music for its qualities of being both refreshingly entertaining and uplifting. There is not a 'throw away' song on the album. It is solid from beginning to end. I just saw the band live and they are incredible live. They are able to sing full-out and create the energy displayed on the album. They sang and played full throttle. Their love of the music came across clearly and you could tell that they had as good of a time on stage as the audience did, which danced and sang as Mike Farris and the Roseland Rhythm Review played.

I was not familiar with his previous work as the frontman of the Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies but after hearing of his Salvation story and of his musical experience I thought He would be someone to check out. I am so glad I did this is such a great album with very powerful and soulful vocals. It has its own unique sound that doesnt really sound like anyone else out there today. It is great for all ages with a souful, gospel, rock, R&b, and blues sound. I love his cover of Sam Cooke's "Change is Gonna Come" and his version of the hymn "Precious Lord Take My Hand." Again a great album that reaches both the young and the old.

WOW...Mike has out done himself. I agree that it is gospel, soul, blues & rock all wrapped up into a fantastic cd. His voice hasn't sound better and he's used his power to unleash his soul into each song. You can't help yourself from rockin' along with him. I'm so happy he has kept his spirit. I wasn't sure if he could match Mavis's soul in "I'll Take You There", but boy...he was not a letdown!!

Agree, give this a listen...you will not be disappointed!!!
