5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD August 1, 2007
By Raven
Format:Audio CD
I love this CD. Many of the songs (God Speaking, Voice of a Savior, Love Somebody besides her first two singles) I loved from the first time I heard it. Some of the other songs I got to like after hearing them second time or so.
People who are putting her down because its a Christian cd is unfair. Fine you don't like Christian music thats your opinion and Mandisa wanted to sing Christian thats what she wants.

I loved her on Idol. But at least by NOT winning she can make the kind of music she wants. Go Mandisa!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first CD July 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Mandisa delivers a CD that did not disappoint. I love that fact that there are lots of styles of music on this CD. She delivers songs that are pop in their stlying such as "Only the World", "True Beauty" and "Steal My Joy". She then teams up with Toby Mac on "Love Somebody" for a fun hip-hop sound. She also does a fun dance song in "Shackles" and a great rendition of "Oh my Lord" which is more gospel in its styling. My favorite songs are the ballads like "God Speaking" and "He will Come", but the entire CD is one I know will gets lots of play in my house. It is rare that I find a CD that my entire family loves, but this one got rave reviews from all members of my family. It is a wonderfully encouraging CD and she allows us to see her struggles and where she turns for help with her struggles and that alone makes it a CD that many will connect with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truly beautiful gem of an album September 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
American Idol finalist and now Sparrow recording artist Mandisa Hundley has much to be thankful for, as do her fans. With the record-breaking release of "True Beauty," Mandisa becomes the first female artist in Billboard history to debut at #1 on the Billboard Christian and Gospel Albums charts with her debut album. With a #1 single ("Only the World," Billboard Hot Singles Sales charts, 5 weeks) and more than 31,000 albums sold in three weeks, Mandisa proves herself one of American Idol Season Five's more chartworthy contestants.

Sparrow Records certainly pulls out all the stops for "True Beauty." With a list of who's who producers, including Doubledutch, Christopher Stevens, Shaun Shankel, Drew & Shannon, and multiple Dove Award winner Brown Bannister, Mandisa finds herself in very capable hands, allowing her natural charisma and style to flow effortlessly through this 11-track stunner of an album. Mandisa's vocal skills are highlighted flawlessly throughout the album, with her stellar pipes ranging from a soft and gentle whisper (channel: "Most Holy Lord, You have my attention," from "Unrestrained") to a blasting furnace (several sections of her kick-[...] retouch of Mary Mary's "Shackles"); the various song styles show Mandisa's ability to adapt to a variety of musical genres, further cementing her skill as a singer and performer.

There is an adequate mix of fast and slow songs on "True Beauty," and the fast ones do not disappoint. Album opener Only "The World" is an obvious first-single choice, and for good reason. The Matthew West-penned toe-tapper has "hit" written all over it, with its catchy guitars and feel-good rhythm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Music; Worth Buying November 4, 2007
By Plebes
Format:Audio CD
After hearing "Only The World" on the radio, I decided to check out the full album. Like I usually do before purchasing a CD, I sampled this CD on Amazon. I wasn't 100% sold on it after listening to the samples, but it still sounded promising (it's hard to experience a song with just a clip) so I decided to purchase it. I was glad I did. As a whole, the CD is excellent. Various styles are integrated into this CD which makes it interesting; some gospel, a little bit of funk, some R&B, pop, etc.
Mandisa's talent shines the most on the upbeat songs (which the majority of this album is). Although she sounds great on the slower songs, they failed to keep my interest or move me. Even though I didn't care for the slower songs, they weren't so bad that I would call them "fillers"
Some of the standout's on this CD are: "True Beauty", "Love Somebody", "Shackles (Praise You)", and "Oh My Lord".
I've watched American Idol off and on and without question Mandisa is one of the most talented that the show has seen.
To sum it up... this CD contains great songs by a powerful singer. Definately worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE HER August 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I LOVED Mendisa on Idol. I'm very happy that she has put out a CD. I'm not a christian music lover, but this is who she. And thankfully she is able to do what she wants, not what she is told to do by corporate America. GOOD FOR YOU, Mandisa. I look forward to a non-christian album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same as the review for her Freedom record
Just an Ok from me. For some reason this artist isn't my type and I love Christian music. I enjoy Jamie Grace, Meredith Andrews and Amy Grant better for women singers. Read more
