THIS album should be the one title INCREDIBLE!!!!
on April 4, 2011
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!
