Janna

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
The powerful voice behind Avalon's No. 1 song "Can't Live a Day" doesn't belong to Patti LaBelle but to Janna Potter Long, a member of the top-selling CCM group since 1995 and a dead ringer for the soulful diva. Janna marks Long's solo debut, and here she unleashes her amazing voice on a collection of dance, R&B, and Top 40 numbers that show her strength as a vocalist. The opening track (and first single), "Greater Is He," is an infectious piece of dance pop, full of thick bass lines and rich backing vocals effectively seasoned with delightful gospel flourishes. The fun and fanciful "Think About That" delivers a universal message of positive thinking wrapped in an ...

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
The powerful voice behind Avalon's No. 1 song "Can't Live a Day" doesn't belong to Patti LaBelle but to Janna Potter Long, a member of the top-selling CCM group since 1995 and a dead ringer for the soulful diva. Janna marks Long's solo debut, and here she unleashes her amazing voice on a collection of dance, R&B, and Top 40 numbers that show her strength as a vocalist. The opening track (and first single), "Greater Is He," is an infectious piece of dance pop, full of thick bass lines and rich backing vocals effectively seasoned with delightful gospel flourishes. The fun and fanciful "Think About That" delivers a universal message of positive thinking wrapped in an infectious, upbeat melody and hook-driven chorus. The ballads "Somebody Loves You" and "More" are full-blown diva demonstrations, while the huge dance-pop number "Overjoyed" has a production big enough to match Long's robust voice. Indeed, one wonders if Long ever felt constrained by her role as just one of a group -- her solo gusto can approach the overbearing. "More" is effective in its power, but "In Christ Alone," which is meant to be anthemic, borders on the shrill. Still, Janna has a lot to offer its listeners; one hopes this won't be the only solo effort from this hugely blessed singer.
All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
It's always exciting to see how fans of a popular ensemble will respond to the first solo recording by a key member, but the powerful voice and solid material choice by Janna Long should be enough to convince Avalon's fans she's for real. The group has won both Grammys and Doves their Christian counterparts, and Mark Hammond and Brown Bannister's productions here reflect the same type of dual approach the group's recordings have -- slick, funky, and hooky anthems and ballads loaded with deep spiritual conviction and passion. Most likely, lighthearted pop confections like the opening track, "Greater Is He," and the rock gospel of "Overjoyed" are more likely to catch on with the group's younger fans, but the real power of this disc comes from the torchy ballads like "Somebody Loves You," "Call," and the classic in the making "In Christ Alone." Lyrically, none of these truly rise above the typical spiritual encouragement of many similar songs, but coming from Long, they sound like fresh communications from God to her to her listener, who may be down at the moment.

    A Must have for your CD collection

    I love this CD and I'm not really into the Pop Christian music. But this CD is not a Pop CD. I just picked up this CD, I didn't even know that she was part of the group Avalon. She has a nice strong voice, I would never guess that. I love it. So go out and cop it now, before her CD is gone. I'm more into the Urban Contempary Christian music.

    I LOVE THIS CD!

    Janna's cd is awesome! It's my favorite cd! My favorite songs are More, Somebody Loves You, What Would I Do?, Superman, and In Christ Alone. I love all the songs, there isn't one song that I don't like! If you don't have this cd, you need to get it b/c it's awesome and Janna has one of the most powerful voices in the Christian Music Industry!
