Okay - I'm not a big Mary Mary fan. In the whole time they've been out, they have about three songs that I like, and didn't RUN to the stores/itunes to buy even them. I don't know what happened on this recording - I don't know if they are under new management or working with new people or what - but this is the only album in my entire Gospel collection that I can sit and listen to the WHOLE thing without having to push skip not one time, and I got everybody from Shirley to Richard Smallwood to Deitrick to Tye to all those different Winans groups to the Boys Choir of Harlem! There are only two songs that I don't absolutely love, and I can even sit through them comfortably because the rest of the album is sooo tight. Now - no - if you're looking for traditional praise and worship speak in tongues Gospel (which I also love and have plenty of in my collection), THIS IS NOT THE ALBUM FOR YOU!!! You will hate it. But if you like a mix of different flavors with your gospel music sometimes, you will love it. You got your funk with a lil country/honkytonk undertone on your opening tune, you got dance, you got urban/r&b, there's autotuned acapella, neo soul, rock, some slight tribal, and even had the nerve to have a drumline on one cut. It really is their best work yet so far to me, by far. My very favorite artists are Fred Hammond and Kim Burrell with members of the Winans clan as a close second, but my ablum with the most cuts on it that I like - 10 outta 12 and can tolerate the whole album nonstop - I gotta say it's Mary Mary Something Big!

I absolutely give God the praise for this album. I appalaud Mary Mary's efforts in moving with The Holy Spirit and doing a new thing - all the while bringing Jesus His full inheritance. I am also glad to see how secure they are in their calling and not being moved by man's opinions. It is a great example for all of us who are also called to something similar. Again, I give God the praise and truly appreciate their ministry. This is another blessed project (as all of their albums have been - another success). May God continue to take them higher for the glory of His beautiful son Jesus! (Isaiah 40:3-5, Matthew 9:38-40!) 5 Stars all the way.

If you are looking for a traditional gospel album this is not it. You are getting a inspirational/ gospel message but with new school r&b beats. This album is more like The Sound but with even more dance/up tempo music. The music on this album appeal to younger gospel listeners and would likely be played daily not just on Sunday. I actually thought my album was skipping but really the song Slow Walk was chopped and skrewed. I love this album, and would recommend it but just be sure to listen to the samples before you buy because this is not the type of music you would hear played in church but at the church picnic.

It's time that we stop allowing our personal preferences to dictate what is worthy or not. Granted the style of music within this CD is edgier than previous releases, however the world is becoming [very quickly] extremely edgy. This CD is current in the sense that it will cause many in and/or of the world to stop and take a listen, and when they do, they will hear words & stories that they can relate to IN the presence of Almighty God. I do highly recommend this CD because of what the words say. Mary Mary does not mince words. God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Word and living a true life in Christ by His way & His truth is the way to go / be; and this CD makes that clear. People need to stop whining about music, whether in church or being sold; "That doesn't please me, etc." If you are a born-again, Spirit/Word-filled Christian, grow up. Allow God to use you & the music He created through those He gifted to reach others. Thank YOU Mary Mary for seeking Christ in this day, in order to be in the world, just not of it, as you reach out a hand to those in need of salvation's deliverance, healing & restoration.

I know Mary, Mary, is a contemporary gospel group and they have a wide appeal possibility because they are contemporary, but this CD took me to church is a good way. The gospel message was crystal clear they were singing about Jesus. I love their style even though I feel most of their music is written for a younger audience. I recommend this CD.

I purchased this album months ago. I really enjoyed it. This vibrant outing picks up where their most recent album left off. The album also resonates with a fusion of sound and empowering messages. This album should be promoted as much as it should.

The Mary's did it up on this one... it's heavily "produced" but the beats are awesome and gives you something to bump in your car. I've always been fans of Mary Mary but felt like they held back on the last couple releases... this one is definitely a "come up".

Something bigger will definitely make you move-
Blind is awesome (simply put)
Never wave my Flag
Survive *
and Sitting with me (my fav) are my loves on the cd.
Good job Mary's

When I bought the album and listened to the first few songs I was like "Oh no, what have they done?" because it sounded like the sisters were trying too hard to fit in with what's going on right now. I put the album away for a day and decided to listen to it the following day & boy did my opinion change. THE ALBUM WAS FANTASTIC!! I was able to relate to almost all the songs, but have personal favorites:
Catch me
Sitting with me
Wave my flag
Are you ready
Homecoming glory
It is well

I can relate to each of these songs on a personal level. I have been encouraged to continue strengthening my relationship with Jesus and I thank these ladies for reinforcing this.This one is my favorite of all their albums. Thank you Jesus!! MM keep doing what you do because there are people like me who are encouraged by your amazing work. People will always have an opinion on how your music is rearranged and so forth, but God's people are being blessed-therefore job well done girls. God bless :-)

Mary Mary...congrats...you have truly impacted a very exhausted and drained soul! :) I did not expect to be rejuvenated, revived, invigorated, and powerfully moved like this. In fact, I read some of the negative stars on this page before purchasing and listening to the CD. So I was VERY shocked when I heard "It is well"...I began to tear up and then fell into serious worship in the middle of "Catch Me". I realized He continuously catches me over and over again. I'm telling you...this CD is TRULY uplifting!!!! Thank you for the music, lyrics, talent, and discipline to produce something of this production value! For a music critic like me, I need high quality music like this to make it through my sometimes overly tight ears!!! YOU HAVE BLESSED ME! Praise God!

I feel that the album was great. It achieves the mission they were set out for, to minister the gospel to not only the church folks, but to the world. As Christians, it is our mission to get others to Christ. Only ministering to those that are already Christians is not what we are supposed to do. I feel this album does exactly that. So, I say a job well done.

Favorite tracks: Something Big, Walking, Blind, Survive, Are You Ready, Never Wave My Flag, and Sitting With Me
