Dream

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tracy E. Hopkins
After a four year hiatus, BeBe Winans returns with the meditative Dream. Instead of following contemporary gospel's trend of incorporating hip-hop-inspired grooves or rhythmic call-and-response hooks, Winans continues to record the timeless gospel ballads he's become known for, both as a solo artist and with his sister CeCe. Musically spare and with lyrics informed by Winans's personal trials and triumphs, which include a painful divorce and dramatic weight loss, Dream is arguably his best solo work. Highlights include the choir-backed "Miracle of Love," featuring Angie Stone, the reverential "Safe from Harm," and the pop-tinged "Love Thang." With songs that will ...

Instead of following contemporary gospel's trend of incorporating hip-hop-inspired grooves or rhythmic call-and-response hooks, Winans continues to record the timeless gospel ballads he's become known for, both as a solo artist and with his sister CeCe.

Highlights include the choir-backed "Miracle of Love," featuring Angie Stone, the reverential "Safe from Harm," and the pop-tinged "Love Thang." With songs that will appeal to secular and non-secular music enthusiasts alike, Winans's Dream of continued success will surely come true.
All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
BeBe Winans' solo career has been a struggle to establish himself separate from his musical family, and Dream, his fifth solo album, chronicles some of the recent difficulties. Winans has drifted from Atlantic Records, which released his self-titled solo debut in 1997, to Motown, which handled Love & Freedom 2000 and the concert set BeBe Live and Up Close 2002, and on to the custom label Hidden Beach distributed by the Epic division of Sony for the holiday collection My Christmas Prayer 2003 and now this album, technically issued under Hidden Beach's new gospel subsidiary, Still Waters, in conjunction with Winans' own TMG The Movement Group label. Whew! All of which is to say that, really, this is Winans' first "non-specialty recording" as Hidden Beach label head Steve McKeever puts it in five years, spanning a divorce and what McKeever refers to as "a much-needed sojourn." Divorces are, of course, a dicey matter in the gospel world, and perhaps it's not surprising that Winans has a little less to say than usual on the subject of religion. In his husky tenor reminiscent of Teddy Pendergrass at his most unctuous, Winans is often apologetic, notably in "Love Me Anyway," in which he regrets that "my indiscretions have caused you much pain." Clearly intended as the album's centerpiece is "I Have a Dream," Winans' musical setting of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous speech from the 1963 March on Washington, which employs excerpts from the speech itself along with Winans' earnest singing of some of its passages. The result isn't as embarrassing as might have been feared, but not nearly as powerful, say, as Bob Marley's "War," drawn from one of Haile Selassie's speeches. Dream actually works better in its less ambitious moments, such as a good cover of Amy Grant's "So Glad." It probably isn't "the album of my life" that Winans claims it to be, but it does find the artist working through his personal problems in an artistic context and suggests he has more good music ahead of him.
