al green is god,no doubt about it, but he didn't always sing the best songs. "explores your mind" is a great example: of course "take me to the river" is a classic up-tempo gospel-tinged hit, but it's not my favorite. i like al green best when he's in that sexy mid-tempo love groove that made his best songs like "tired of being alone" so timeless. this album has two of those: "sha-la-la (make me happy)" and "i'm hooked on you." the price of the CD is worth it for just these two songs. i mean , as great as al is, i really don't care for "the city," nor do i care for most of the songs on this one. anyway, if you love al's voice--and who doesn't?!--you might not be as picky as me.
either way, the cover and title are cool, and al is, yes, god.
