Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

Never one to shy away from revealing himself and doing so unconventionally, Kirk Franklin returns to the charts with his strong statement of faith in the conceptual Rebirth of Kirk Franklin. From the deeply personal opening, "Intro," to the ending, "Outro (the Blood)," Franklin takes us on a journey of faith littered with doubt, struggles, and a sincerity that's hard to resist. This mostly live release includes a handful of cameo appearances by the likes of Bishop T.D. Jakes, Yolanda Adams, and Jaci Velasquez. Such a diverse group of guests mirrors the accessibility of Franklin's music on this release. Ably backed by a tight band and the powerhouse Vocals of Life choir, Franklin takes no prisoners on the blistering "Hosana," "Caught Up," and the Rasta-flavored "He Reigns," featuring Papa San. Franklin's songwriting prowess also surfaces in quieter numbers like "Don't Cry" and "Always." Throughout his meteoric career, Franklin has skillfully combined soul, gospel, hip-hop, and pop into a multicolored tapestry. On Rebirth, Franklin's colors have never shown brighter. --Michael Lyttle

5.0 out of 5 stars Anointed Songs for This Season February 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I thank God for bringing this GREAT rebirth to Kirk Franklin! I am certain that his testimony is what each of us hear in the lyrics and melodies of these songs. As you listen to these soulful songs, listen to them within yourself! You will then find that there may be a kinship with Kirk Franklin's love for God that you and he share!
The nickname for this project is "The Church Project" and it fits! The guest Gospel artists present their gifts before the Lord on this project in the true spirit of worship and praise!
Bishop T. D. Jakes adds wisdom and a great seasoned voice to the dialog he and Kirk employ. This song ministers to the pain, fear and aimless wonder of those desperate for answers of peace from God.
If you love Gospel music filled with the presence of God, invest this CD, tape and (I believe) soon coming video into your life and those whom you love! You will be blessed prosperously for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Kirk Franklin's classics........ March 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I noticed over the last few years that my man Kirk came under tremendous fire for his fushion of Hip-Hop sound and R&B artists into gospel music. But contrary to what others believed he has gone back to the basics. On, The Rebirth Of Kirk Franklin, he reinvents himself and his sound. The entire album is live with the exception of one track. However one element that stayed the same is Kirk's writing skills and style. The opening song, Hosanna, has such a powerful sound to it. It is upbeat, but highly annointed. This trend continues throughout the album, and the guest appearnces by a variety of Gospel and Christian artists including, Richard Smallwood,T.D. Jakes, Shirley Caesar,Crystal Lewis and DC Talk, adds diversity.This album contains all of the trademarks Kirk has developed throughout his ministry, and shows us he can't be stopped with God as his inspiration. I know you will love this album as much as I do, so pick it up. It's a CLASSIC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome September 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD a month ago, and I must say that from time to time, I sing some of the songs on there. "Looking Out for Me" is one of my favorites. i had an experience when I knew that the Lord was truly looking out for me, and when I got home, I got out that CD and played it. I know that He does truly look out for me. Other personal favorites are "Always", the part where the children are praying is so precious,"Our God is an Awesome God" has always been a favorite, and this version is phat. "A Brighter Day" is another favorite. I feel this is probably Kirk's best to date. Not to discount the others which were just as good. But I tend to feel that he is going in another direction with his music and this is so good. Highly recommended.
