4.0 out of 5 stars HOW DO YOU SLEEP? HOW?, 22 Aug 2004
"Imagine" may not have been as groundbreaking or as superb as "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band," but it's certainly more listenable.

"Greatest Hymns" is a wonderful collection of hymns, including such classics as "He Leadeth Me" and "Nearer My God To Thee." This is a wonderful CD if you are looking for some music with which to praise the Lord as it has some of the best devotional hymns ever penned. And Pat Boone, having one of the greatest voices of the 20th century, is certainly the right man to sing these odes as his voice clearly brings out their glory and inspiration, most notably on "What A Friend We Have In Jesus" and "Rock Of Ages." The instrumentation is flawless and there is also a choir which backs up Pat's voice. This is a perfect CD for any Christian and is definitely a godly and honourable use of money.
