Editorial Reviews

There doesn't seem to be a better way to follow-up the gold selling Live From Another Level and the near-gold Alive From South Africa, than a stunning seasonal release, A Timeless Christmas. Who better to capture the reason for the season than the Grammy-Nominated, Dove, Stellar, & Soul Train Award-winning group Israel & New Breed. Israel & New Breed s innovative style, fused with a classical element truly makes A Timeless Christmas an album to be treasured for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative genius November 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If there was ever any doubt that Israel Houghton is one of the brightest and most creative artists in music today, this should quell it. Not since Kirk Franklin's Christmas album have I heard a holiday set that is listenable all year long. Kirk's set is still great, and has stood the test of time, but A TIMELESS CHRISTMAS kicks it up a notch.

I am not someone who is a big fan of Christmas music (spiritual or otherwise), but the unique arrangements given to these classics provide such a freshness that even someone like me can get into these songs. From beginning to end all of the music flows, is uplifting, interesting to listen to. Israel and New Breed drive home the spiritual side of Christmas without delving into cheap sentiment. It's a well-balanced statement of faith that is perfect for sharing with believers and non-believers alike. After listening to this, some skeptics just may want to find out more about Who is known as "The Reason for the season."

As extraordinary as this set is, I have to mention something that sets it even further above many other noteworthy albums: special guests that actually add to the project rather than detract from it. So many times these guests can distract from or frankly ruin a project, especially when there are as many guests as on ATC. But each and every guest's appearance here contributes to this work in a positive way. Of particular note is Lalah Hathaway's performance: a brilliant singer, artist and interpreter at any rate, this is one of her finest performances ever.

One minor quibble: it's always good to hear artists include their own children on a project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Israel @ Christmas - Most Appropriate October 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've been an Israel fan since Jan' 2004 when I accidentally came across New Season at a New Year's Gathering at a Friend's house. Since then, I have not been able to put aside anything musically from Israel. He and the new breed band consistently get the most rotations on my mp3 player, the whole year through, year on year, and it's always a special feeling when you know a new Israel cd is coming, it comes out and you get it in your hand.

So here it is!!! I dare say one of the most beautifully crafted musical escapades you could ever want to go on. From the first note of the 'Nutcracker Overture' you could tell this disc was going to be something special. Israel and New Breed fans and Gospel fans all over the world, pick it up, pick it up, pick it up!!!! The album is simply brilliant, put together like a live concert, with a mix of familiar and new Christmas songs but in their true Israel musicianship style. The other thing i noted was how some of the songs were written so that they could be played all year through, for the message, and not only for Christmas time. The guest artists are simply quality.

Mr. Luther "Mano" Hanes and Israel Houghton Well Done!!! I only wished Aaron Lindsey was on the project but will wait for their next one together.

My pics of the disc - Go Tell It, Least of These and Nocturnal Mist but it's an experience and they all fit perfectly together.

Merry Christmas All!!

God Bless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now here's a Christmas gift! October 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
OH MY GOODNESS! WHAT A BLESSING! In my humble opinion, "A Timeless Christmas" is one of the very best Christmas projects to hit the market in a very long time. From track 1 to track 15, the glorious message of Christmas is told as only Israel & New Breed can tell it. Luther "Mano" Hanes lends excellent production assistance as Israel reels in special guests, Marvin Winans and his sister, Cece, Lalah Hathaway, Jonathan Butler, Marcus Miller, Gerald Albright and the graceful orchestral presence of the Beijing Symphony. I tell you, this CD is extraordinary. Until now, though I have a huge collection of Christmas music, I had but 2 all time favorite Christmas projects - The Quincy Jones production "Handel's Messiah: A Soulful Celebration" and Kirk Franklin & The Family "Christmas;" today, without hesitation, I add "A Timeless Christmas" to my list. Can't figure out what gift to give to your loved ones and friends this Christmas? Well, this CD will be a gift they'll cherise for many seasons to come. I love the CD, but must end with one question - where was New Breed mainstay, Aaron Lindsay?

5.0 out of 5 stars Israel Houghton & New Breed (IH&NB) November 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is where a Christmas album should be at! Trust IH&NB to release a Christmas album that you can listen to all year round. It's more than apparent that IH&NB take the season as seriously as God took that first Christmas. Where others would push out a seasonal half-baked product IH&NB metes out absolutely no compromise slick production guiding us through a myriad of beautiful aural experiences. You bet their Christmas morn church service will be jam packed!

Without doubt this is the best executed Christmas album I've ever heard. I would say it's their best release, at least way up there with the best of them. IH&NB has simply chosen not to pander to Christmas schmaltz and `A Timeless Christmas' stands tall and proud as a creditable Christian church-based portrayal of Christmas as well as a faultless major project in its own right.

It's brain-strain to select the best cuts - `A Timeless Christmas' transcends such assessments. Of course, during ownership of this CD (more than highly recommended) you will gradually pick out your favourites. Initial hearings leave one marveling at the fullness of each track and synergetic cohesion of the whole.

Stick the CD on `play' and you'll leave it there, the `skip' button just doesn't feature for products of this caliber. Dare I twist a phrase - it's their season - and yes, though their avid fans do listen to IH&NB through rose-tinted hearing aids, this album is genuinely special.
