must admit that this is a magnificent album. What makes it so good is the wide range of styles that Mavis displays on the album. "I belong to the Band" is straightforward rock, "Losing You" is almost late-night jazz, while"Last Train" reminds me of Little Feat. Mavis's voice is superb throughout, and as well as the overt religious message there are nicely humorous touches, and some of the social messages that featured heavily in The Staples Singers work - "In Christ there is no East or West" is as much about racism as it is about Christianity.
I could lavish superlatives on this all day, and other reviewers have given a more detailed track by track review, so I'll conclude by saying simply that this is, in my opinion, the album of 2010. And remember: "The downward road is crowded with unbelieving souls" - so believe in Mavis and buy this album.
