5.0 out of 5 stars HERO 23 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
I think the cd is one of the best works of Kirk Franklin. It sure has different styles of music and themes but all in all its one of the best of his cds. He has explored different themes and blended the sound of the songs really well.It will attract all ages and peoples alike. I HIGHLY recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gospel veteran and Gospecentric recording artist 10 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Gospel veteran and Gospecentric recording artist Kirk Franklin releases his long awaited studio album entitled `HERO'

The latest album `HERO' is very different form the last two he had previously released `The Rebirth Of Kirk Franklin' and `1NC'

The album starts of very strong with the lead single "Looking for love". This song is very infectious, funky and definitely a club banger. The album is jammed pack of songs like this such as "could've been" with J Moss and Tye Tribbett and "Better"

Kirk gets very personal on this album and talks about his life in "Let it go". The album has a very strong emotional feel which is nothing new for a Kirk Franklin recording but this time round it feels more heartfelt with songs like "Without You" and "Brokenhearted" just to name a few.

Kirk really doesn't spare anything on this one. The album is full of big names such as Yolanda Adams, Marvin L. Winans, Stevie Wonder and many more. Kirk also shows that he can still take it to church on tracks like "The appeal" and "Afterwhile"

A good thing about this album is that it has 20 tracks so you bound to find at least 5-10 tracks you'll like.

Overall this is a very good album but towards the end you'll find songs where you feel as though you have heard them already that is really the only downside to "Hero".

4.0 out of 5 stars Mix of new styles, still a blessing. 29 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is an enthusiastic and fresh follow-up to the previous album ('The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin'). It crosses a variety of more contemporary musical sounds, however the message has not been lost and continues to be a truly uplifting and praise-invoking experience that won't want to leave your CD player. Stand out tracks include 'Looking For You', 'Imagine Me', 'Hero' and 'Why' which features Stevie Wonder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Imagine Me 15 Mar 2008
By Peter Roxburgh TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Just bought this CD on the back of the song 'Imagine Me'. Even if you aren't a big gospel fan buy this CD even if just for 'imagine me'. It is one of the most powerful songs I have ever heard. I have heard it many many times and it still brings tears to my eyes.... and that's not because I had a tough childhood etc.... it is simply because this is a very powerful song and well worth the 10 for the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe his best yet? 5 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I had to listen to this album a couple of times before I could get into it but having gotten into I just love it now. I went from thinking it's his worst album ever to thinking that it's his best album ever.

For me the stand out tracks are Brokenhearted, Could've Been, Better, Imagine Me, Let It Go & Why.

Interesting to see the sort of people he's collaborated with on this album. He collaborates with the legend that is Stevie Wonder (on Why) and P.O.D. front man Sonny Sandoval (on Let It Go). One wonders who on earth he would collaborate with on his next album. I don't know if it would possible but it would be nice if he could do something with Alicia Keys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kirk's Hero 12 Sep 2010
By Mer
Format:Audio CD
This album was money well spent.

Kirk has inspired me to have an even deeper relationship with Jesus. When I get in my car
I can't even listen to the radio as it's as if, nothing compares, and the radio music is so uninspirational.

I recommend this album wholly or should I say holy.

Go on treat yourself it's worth it....
