Talk About It

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Her self-titled debut in 2000 catapulted Mullen from backup singer/songwriter to pop diva in her own right. Talk About It, her sophomore release, is an equally stellar collection, using jazzy R&B grooves and gentle ballads to deliver its message that all things are possible with God. This is largely an album of comfort and encouragement, lushly produced and beautifully embellished with sampling and rich backing vocals. Children's voices resound throughout, from the opening title track to the closing coda where Mullen sings with her own children -- a playful reminder that we are all children of God.

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Her self-titled debut in 2000 catapulted Mullen from backup singer/songwriter to pop diva in her own right. Talk About It, her sophomore release, is an equally stellar collection, using jazzy R&B grooves and gentle ballads to deliver its message that all things are possible with God. This is largely an album of comfort and encouragement, lushly produced and beautifully embellished with sampling and rich backing vocals. Children's voices resound throughout, from the opening title track to the closing coda where Mullen sings with her own children -- a playful reminder that we are all children of God. Mullen has never shied from tackling social and moral issues in her music, and Talk About It is no exception. On the groove-rich "Baby Girl" she urges self-esteem and self-respect to a 14-year-old: "Baby girl don't you know your wealth/ You're a diamond hiding on the shelf," she reminds her young friend. Brilliantly, "Baby Girl" segues into the tender "Call On Jesus," where Mullen reveals her true worth: "I'm so very ordinary, nothing special on my own... But when I call on Jesus all things are possible." Talk is a more worshipful collection than Nicole C. Mullen, which largely explored her family and roots, but there's plenty of energy and depth, making it one of the strongest releases of the year.

    MOVING

    A friend of mine sent this to me during a very difficult time in my life and it was very moving. "Call on Jesus" will bring tears to your eyes............it will remind you that with God all things are possible.......

    This Girl Has Talen

    Everytime I listen to ''Call on Jesus'' or ''Redeemer'' something just comes over me. I saw Nicole at a Songs 4 Worship concert a few weeks in St. Louis, and when she sang those songs I really felt the spirit of the Lord. She's got an awesome talent and I'm so glad she uses it! Keep it up Nicole!!!!! You are an inspiration!!!

    Thank you Nicole

    I was really blessed by both of her songs, My Redeemer Lives and When I Call on Jesus. They are both encouraging songs and are an encouragement to me as I go through a time of trial.

    Nicole C. Mullen does it again!

    I heard a pre-release of this album and it totally blew my mind! I couldn't stop listening to this CD! There is such a great variety of songs. The pop/urban cuts are awesome and her voice is so crisp and smooth on the ballads. She takes worshiping God to a new level! Each cut has something important to say and has deep lyrics. ''Call on Jesus'' is probably my favorite. ''Witness'' is great too. This album is sure to please Christians and non-christians alike. I highly recommend it!
