3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best, 25 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: Hello Fear (MP3 Download)
I am a huge Kirk Franklin fan. I think he writes the most fantastic songs. I have three of his other albums, including Hero The Fight of My Life Songs for the Storm Vol.1

I waited for my birthday with eager expectations as this was a present I had requested.

Sadly, I was quite disappointed and I haven't listened to this album nearly as much as the other three.

This is not to say that the songs aren't good. Most of them are of a reasonable standard. But not the standard that I have come to know from Kirk Franklin.

I felt that it was a lot 'noisier' album than his previous outings i.e. he has definitely taken on a lot more 'gospel' influence whereas his previous albums didn't have quite so much.

Having said that, there are some powerful songs like 'Nothing But the Blood' and 'Something about the name of Jesus' which are amazingly reflective and worshipful.

'I Smile' is definitely the most catchy song on the album and definitely worth buying.

My suggestion is listen to the previews and then download the mp3's of the songs that really take your fancy. If more than 7 of them do, then you know it's worth buying the whole album :)

If you have never listened to any Kirk Franklin then I would suggest starting with the album 'Hero'. It has an amazing collection of songs including the always powerful 'Imagine Me'.

Hope that helps.
