Ever since Heather Payne left the group, it has NOT been the same. Their Harmony and range is limited and they have a few new issues that I can't over look.
Please NOTE The Following:
1. They have gone into secular country type of music.
2. They do not hold the line on modesty anymore
3. there are no solid Gospel lyrics in their songs either!
This CD will be a downer for any POG fans that loved the original Quartet group ( Denise, Heather, Shelly and Terry ).
From the moment that Heather Payne left the group, it has NOT been the same. The group has gone down hill and anymore, they don't hold the line when it comes to modesty. I've seen some shocking *Official POG photos* of Denise Jones in a Skimpy dress! I am No Longer A fan of this group... whatever they had has been lost.
what a disappointment. Ordered this for my wife's birthday because we a great POG fans. Could not have been more surprised. If I had wanted a Dixic Chicks cd I would have ordered one. Very disappointed and saddened.
This is a wonderful CD and I, too, like POG's new sound. I would say it is much more country-sounding than "How You Live", which was just starting to lean in that direction. I do a lot of solo work, as well as singing in a trio, so their music is very useful for me in all types of ministry. From doing programming for women's groups, to ministering at the prison or hospice, to even singing with Teen Challenge locally, I can find good music in their recordings. The song that melts me right down on this latest one is "There Is Nothing Greater Than Grace". However, I think there are a number of crossover songs and I wish it were full of selections like the aforementioned, because what does contain the Christian message on this CD is outstanding. If I wanted a straight-country CD, I'd probably buy directly from a country artist, though. Still, I'll give it 5 stars because they do such an excellent job on the lighter, fun stuff and the Gospel songs speak to my heart on a deep level - please don't stop producing those songs entirely, POG!
