5.0 out of 5 stars one who enjoys good music, January 31, 2012
This review is from: God, Love & Romance (Audio CD)
I recently purchased the new Fred Hammond project, God Love and Romance. This is one impressive album. Its more than an album, its an emotional,musical, and spiritual experience. Its been awhile since music like this has really moved the soul. This project goes back to the days of REAL MUSIC when music met soul met spirit met reality.
I love all types of music. Jazz, Soul, Rock, Inspirational, Gospel, Reggae, Country, Opera, Symphony, Pop, World Music, Folk. This is the type of music that transcends genre and time (music that has staying power to the senses and soul). Fred has made great projects in his outstanding career, but personally for me, this is his BEST album in my FH catalog. I've never heard a gospel artist (along with Kirk Franklin) be so transparent, honest, and real in relation to their spiritual, relational, and emotional journey. These are LIFE songs. I'm hoping that GOD LOVE AND ROMANCE has set the blueprint for more gospel artists to really be transparent and sing about LIFE and how God is with them on that journey MONDAY THRU SATURDAY instead of giving the usual cliche lyrics in alot of gospel music.
Here are my favorite cuts:
1. When I Come Home to You- love jazz vocalist like Al Jarreau
2. The Proposal- The Horns are killing it
3. Easier
4. You're So Beautiful
5. My Lady and Myself
6. Better Love
7. I Feel Good
8. I Will Lift Him Up
9. Amazing Love
10. You're Gonna Make It

Also love the interludes between songs. The honest and real conversation brings "realism" and "support" to the songs. You relate to them. I love the opening, "WRITE SOMETHING FOR US". A woman saying that she's sexy on a gospel album is classic. LOL. Also, the GIRLS NIGHT OUT at the end of disc 2 is hilarious, but that's the point, ITS REAL TALK.

I bet this project is going to get alot of people reading THE BOOK OF SONG OF SOLOMON too. LOL LOL LOL.
