All Music Guide - John Bush
After years of mediocre, overly rock-oriented crossovers between gospel and the rap scene, Kirk Franklin & the Family led a resurgence in the field with albums that did equally well in both areas.

    Body bumping, inspiring gospel funk

    These boys have got it together...their music is not only spritually fulfilling but it makes you want to get outta your seat and dance with the awesome beats they offer. Go out and get this album today...I highly recommend it not only to the gospel-lover but to anyone who just likes R&B/Rap music...this is an album that should not be excluded from your music collection!! ***** on my list!

    I am buying it!

    Who knew Christian music could sound like this?? This is awesome! I just wish groups like this would get more publicity than the gang-banging rappers glorifying drugs and hate. I wish there was more of this available!
