The CD, while being typical Kirk Franklin (great), was a little disappointing. The song called "Stomp" on the CD is not the "Stomp" from the radio that is so popular. The way its titled on the CD is confusing. That was the song I was looking for, and unfortunately the only song I knew on the CD. So now I have a CD that I didn't want and I have to buy the CD with the correct song. Money wasted - Bummer man!
A CLASSIC Oct 7, 2005
THIS ALBUM BY KIRK FRANKLIN IS THE BEST HE HAS EVER MADE. THIS ABLUM BLESSES ME EVERYTIME THAT I HEARD IT. ALL OF THE SONGS ARE AWESOME. IT WILL MAKE YOU SHOUT BECAUSE THEY ARE ON FIRE FOR THE LORD AND THAT IS A GOOD THING. KIRK FRANKLIN IS THE BEST IN THE WHOLE WORLD AND THIS ALBUM IS THE HIS BEST ONE. SMILE AGAIN IS THE BEST SONG ON THIS WHOLE ALBUM. IT WILL MINISTER TO YOUR SOUL AND TO YOUR HEART AND IT WILL BLESS YOU. IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH SOMETHINGS THEN YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS SONG. KIRK NEEDS TO MAKE MORE SONGS LIKE THESE. ANYWAYS THIS ALBUM IS AWESOME. YOU ARE GETTING YOUR MONEYS WORTH.
How inspirational! Aug 31, 2005
During this time I was very involved in church and loved these songs by Kirk Franklin. It kept me from running the streets and getting into SO much trouble. Kirk and Nu NAtion went up to another level with this disc. The anointing was definitely on them from GOD. This CD touched so many saints and sinners alike. It is an ultimate testimony. Revolution,Riverside, and If you've been delivered are stand up and dance/shout joints. Meanwhile Hold me NOw, Lean On me, and Jesus You are still keep me spellbound. I can relate to these three songs very well. There isn't any song here that I don't like or still know the words in exact memory. Favs: Hold me nOw, Jesus You Are, My Desire, Riverside, He loves me, and Something about the name. Kirk and Nu Nation created a certified gospel classic!
Excellent Album Mar 25, 2005
Kirk Franklin is one of the most influencial artists in gospel and contemporary christian music and is probably the most influncial artist of the late 90's/ early 00's. He infuses R&B, funk, traditional gospel, hip hop, and pop music in truly innovative way. He has been criticized and judged for being revolutionary, for not keeping God in a religious box. This album is the best response to this critics, he brings forth and album bringing traditional gospel artists (Donnie McClurkin, God's Property and Fred Hammond) with contemporary christian artists (Crystal Lewis) and Pop and R&B artists (Bono of U2, Mary J. Blige, and R. Kelly)for a truly revolutionary album. He blends old and new and never loses his sense of humor or lowers his standards. If more gospel music sounded like this, more people of all ethnic groups would listen to it. He brings gospel music to non-religious people. His next album is more humble but none of his albums are better.
Praise GOD, I love this cd!! Dec 13, 2004
When this cd first came out, I was all over it! The Lord moved through Kirk on this one. Lean on Me was a big hit, both gospel and secular, but it is definitely not the best song on the album.
