5.0 out of 5 stars I'm breathless!, July 10, 2006
This review is from: Feels Good (Audio CD)
I have almost every album Take 6 has made. Compared to their most recent projects, "Feels Good" feels like coming out of a dark tunnel and back into the sunlight and fresh air.

I'm guessing that it's not a coincidence that this stunning project came about after they formed their own record label. On much of their later albums, it has seemed like they were trying to take their unique sound and gospel message and squeeze it to fit into a run-of-the-mill mainstream pop mold. It was like forcing Superman to live as Clark Kent permanently. If that was the result of corporate influence, I'm so glad they broke away.

Every track on "Feels Good" would merit at least 3 stars or better on its own. They do some of their very best work on "More Than Ever" and "Just in Time". I was dancing out of my seat on "Come On" and "This Is Another Day" (if Andre Crouch had written that song just today, he probably would have sent it straight to Take 6 instead of recording it himself). But the stand-out and defining songs here are "Family of Love" and especially "Lamb of God". Fabulous harmonies, beautiful arrangements, and the undisguised Christian expression almost brought me to tears. Would they have ever been able to do this song while they were with their old label? It feels like they finally have the freedom to be who they really are and do what God put them on this planet to do.

I completely agree with what everyone else is saying. Take 6 is back!

Take 6 never left....accapella is
their forte and I believe no group
is as good or as inspirational. I'm glad
they were creative and thoughtful
enough to branch out and try something
different. IT'S ALL GOOD! ' The Standard'
combines instruments and voice to a wonder
extent to kick things up a notch.
