I was amazed by the hate I found in the Anonymous "Country Music Fan" review. I noticed she placed a hate filled review on everyone of their cd's. It is fine to not like a style of music or a particular artist, which is after all what America is all about, freedom of choice. But why go to the level of saying things like the girls are not attractive, and these people would never make it in the secular world. Thank God Almighty that The Crabb Family is a Christian group more concerned with saving souls then trying to promote a glamour image. The last I knew no one in America put a gun to anyone's head and forced them to buy a CD. Maybe, Anonymous "Country Music Fan", if you opened up your heart God might speak to you through the music of the Crabb Family. The names of artist you mentioned have produced some nice music. But if you really knew music like you thought you would be recommending, Bach, Handel, Mozart or Beethoven. Or orchestras like Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago, London & Amsterdam. Or what about conductors such as, Leonard Bernstein, Robert Shaw, James Levine, Ton Koopman. If you have some spare time check out a "Music Appreciation Call" it would be money well spent.
P.S. What happened Anonymous "Country Music Fan" Wouldn't they let you in the group?
Trying to make money! Nov 15, 2006
To me, the Crabb family are a bunch of kids who found a way to make a fast buck! They figure that the Christian people are so stupid that they'll buy anything! The Crabb family wants your money, and it sounds like it too when they sing (they don't even sing well!) They can't hardly sing, the women in the group are extremely unactractive, my God, they wouldn't sell a damn thing in the secular industry! Get a life, and buy someone who cares about what they are singing and not just the MONEY! These Losers found a way to make a fast buck without working their a** off for it! SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy someone good like Karen Wheaton, Juanita Bynum, Karen Peck, Ralna English, etc.
Amazing Dec 6, 2005
I am always amazed at new Crabb Family recordings. I think I know what to expect, but they always seem to come up with something new and something great. This CD is no exception. There is literally something for everyone on this album. You will hear some Country Gospel, Southern Gospel, Inspirational, and some Black Gospel. This is an album with a lot of variety. It is an interesting concept, because the Crabb Family is trying to broaden their fan base by reaching a more diverse audience with the Gospel of Christ. If this CD is any indication, then they are accomplishing their goal.
The CD opens with "Promised Land", a country sounding tune featuring Kelly. You'll even hear a touch of a mandolin in the track. It's a song of hope and encouragement. "The Shepherd's Call" is a nice ballad featuring Jason. It gives a new reflection of the ninety and nine sheep that were safe and how the Shepherd left them to find that one lost soul.
"Sacrifice Of Praise" would fit into any modern Praise and Worship service. This is one song that shows the diversity of Gerald Crabb's song writing. Adam does a nice job interpreting this song. Aaron is featured on one of my favorite songs on the CD, "My Keeper," a thought provoking song making you think about all the times that God has saved you from perilous situations. This one has a great message. For those of you looking for some of that traditional Southern Gospel sound, "Good Day," "Walk Away" and "Rahab" will suit your fancy. "Rahab" was co-written by Gerald Crabb and Jason Crabb. You had better have a box full of Kleenex ready when Jason sings "Forever". This one is a tie for my favorite song on the CD. Dads and daughters will both be sobbing at the end of this song, but it's a good one. This song deals with saying goodbye in a couple of different ways. "You Can't Imagine", co-written by Gerald Crabb and Sue Smith is a beautiful ballad of thanksgiving. "He Came Looking For Me" has a real catchy swing to it. You may just catch yourself swaying as you listen to this one. Wrapping up the CD is a remake of "Through The Fire," however when they added guest soloist Donnie McClurkin, it added even a little more fire if possible.
This CD is just what any Crabb Family fan could want and it is enough to make fans out of someone who has never heard the Crabb Family. This CD is must have and you may even want two or three to keep from fighting over who gets to listen to it.
The Crabb Family is a great group. They are one of the best southern gospel groups around. Their album Driven is one of my favorites. It is very similar to the older ones but there are a few new things that make it great. One of the older albums called The Walk has a song called He is greater that is really good. It is the song that made The Walk, but now there is a song called Sacrifice of Praise. It is one of the best songs that the Crabb Family has done. It made the Driven cd the best. My two favorite tunes on this cd are Promised Land and Sacrifice of Praise. Promised Land is a very upbeat song that talks about a place we all can't wait to get. It is talking about heaven and how wonderful it is going to be. Sacrifice of praise is just a song to get you and makes you praise our wonderful God. When you are down listen to these songs and it will really lift your spirits. Both of these songs have the thing that helps you know who they are. It has the great guitar, drum and piano solos. They all have that awesome intro of these instruments. Most of the lyrics they have are all consistent. They all worship our Lord. There is one song on Driven that is different. It still has the positive message but it talks about the relationship between a father and daughter. How their relationship will always be there even when he is gone. I love the Crabb Family because they are awesome singers. To go with their voices they have awesome solos of piano, guitar, and a little banjo. If you love upbeat music with instrument solos then Driven is the cd for you. The Gaither Vocal band is also very similar to The Crabbs. They have upbeat worship songs that get to your heart and lift your spirits. If you choice the Crab Family "Driven" or "The Walk"; or a Gaither Local Band cd your ears will be very pleased.
