I like this new album better than any other that GVB has put out. The quality of their performance as a whole is incredible. The message in these lyrics are solid, will warm your heart, and renew the joy of your faith. I have listened to GVB's albums since the beginning and own most of them. I have the songbook to many of their albums and dozens of their accompaniment tracks as well. If you have a Country music fan in your life, they will really enjoy "Jesus and John Wayne" and "Lovin' Life", two very Country-Western sounding songs. My favorite however, is their version of the old Dorsey tune, "Search Me Lord". God Bless!
I really have enjoyed this CD since I bought it. My favorites are Home Of Your Dreams, Lovin' Life and Prisoner Of Hope. Is it better than Give It Away? Absolutely not but it is excellent in my humble opinion and I will play it as much as Give It Away (if that is possible :-))
I am indeed a GVB fan, and have been for YEARS(1991 in fact) and I was actually very disappointed with this album. After 5 or 6 times listening to the album, I am ready to put it on the shelf with the rest of my albums. I didn't find any ONE song, that stuck out to me and made me want to rewind over and over again, like previous albums did. As recently as "Give it Away" the GVB had me listening to their albums for days on end. This one here just doesn't seem to have the same "PUNCH" as previous albums.Don't get me wrong, it's an EXCELLENT CD, and I am glad to have it as part of my 40+ CD Gaither collection(GVB and Homecoming) but it just doesn't stand out as anything special. Sorry Bill. :(
Incredible album. I don't believe the Gaither Vocal Band has ever sounded better. My favorite song is the first; "I'm Forgiven" has an awesome tune and great message. I don't really care for "Jesus and John Wayne," but everything else is wonderful. Thanks GVB for making such a great album.
This is an awesome cd that the Gaither Vocal Band has released, by far this one I feel is the best one they have put together. If you are a true Gaither Vocal Band fan, then this cd is for you, and I would highly recomend this cd. The songs are wonderful, and it showcases the vocal abilty of the Gaither Vocal Band. You will be blessed by this cd.
