All Music Guide - Melinda Hill
Michael English's Heaven to Earth is an exquisite album. It's pop music in the best possible sense: for the people, popular. It has an always timely message of forgiveness, compassion, and faithfulness. This album follows a great deal of upheaval in English's life, and his choice of material reflects that. His first track, "Finally Free," is an upbeat song with a tiny hint of country to it. The title song is one of the high points of the album. It's a dramatic song with a lush orchestral sound.

The orchestration appears at several points throughout the album, adding depth to an already solid musical work. "To Live On" is a ballad with good pacing; it crescendos nicely into full choral sound. "Always Be There" has an atmospheric, contemporary sound, without being trite. The only truly weak track is "How Grace Feels," a song that tries just too hard to be trendy. Whatever English's past choices were, this album urges forgiveness and compassion, and is well worth it.

    English Returns With A Soulful Offering

    After a long wait for many English fans, this project lived up to even the highest expectations.Track#1, Finally Free, is a soft ballad detailing the freedom when one turns everything over to Christ.Another noteable track, #10, If You Only Knew, is a touching, moving ballad about loved ones passing on to heaven.The title track, Heaven To Earth, is classic Michael English.Powerful vocals with an excellent arrangement. This alblum has a mixture of styles, rock ballad, soft ballads, power songs and all with English's r&b soulful stylings.This project is highly recommended.

    Not a disappointment

    After waiting for so long for a new CD from Michael English, I must say that I was not disappointed! The musical stylings vary from track to track, from inspirational ballads to more upbeat rock sounds - he even included the blues! I recommend this to any fan of music.
