Overview

Since the Chicken Soup series of books and records was a '90s phenomenon, nobody should be surprised that the 2002 Rhino compilation Chicken Soup for the Gospel Soul contains nothing but contemporary gospel, recorded in the '80s and '90s. This is not gospel in the classic sense, then, even if many of these artists are within the classic tradition -- the music is nowhere near as gritty or alive as classic sides from the '40s, '50s, and '60s. Then again, anybody looking for a Chicken Soup for the Soul disc isn't looking for gritty, but rather is looking for soothing, which is exactly what this disc offers. There are plenty of big names here, plenty of soothing contemporary gospel, and some hits -- not necessarily representative of the genre as a whole, but certainly fulfilling for those who would seek this out.
