Tell me 5 years ago that I'd get into these guys and I'd have laughed it away. But I tell you....it's infectious; absolutely as good as their Grammy-winning Spirit of the Century from 2001. Songs from Stevie Wonder, Aretha, and trad gospel, done in their own unique way. Very highly recommended.

I am not a religious man (far from it) and am no follower of gospel music but having come across the blid boys of alabamas Spirit of the Century album I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one.
THere is no doubt that this is another fine album full of wonderful vocals. As with Spirit of the century the blind boys have been teamed up with another great set of backing musicians, although I must admit i do miss Danny Thompsons excellent bass playing which was an outstanding feature of the previous album.
There is a good range of songs on this album which show up the beauty of the singing and playing.
Even if like me you would never normall consider a gospel album this is well worth buying and if you have never heard spirit of the century you MUST get that album tha treally is essential listening

and it certainly holds true for this people. They really have gone "back to basics" with their music and therefore the final product is just amazing.
Don't expect any fancy vocals or over-virtuous performances, this is about soul and a simple message, which the blind boys deliver excellently.

What can be said about such amazing talents that have withstood decades and fashions. After so many years together The Boys are perfectly tuned and harmonious. This is gospel as it should be: from the heart, black, American and true. If you have never heard real gospel before, this is as amazing as it can get.

A solid album of songs to relax and unwind to from a group of truly gifted vocalists. Track 11 is a particular favourite.
