The Promise

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Before the release of THE PROMISE, the buzz surrounding this five-member Christian "boy band" was palpable, so it was somewhat of a relief to finally hear their impressive debut. Plus One comes complete with all of the glossy trappings you'd expect -- good looks, polished R&B voices, and shiny production. The difference, of course, is the message: While Plus One's resemblance to 'N Sync is obvious, it's unlikely we'll hear those pop princes singing a song called "God Is In this Place." Why no one thought of putting together a boy band for the Christian market earlier is anyone's guess, but now that they have, we can be thankful this project was handled with integrity.

The difference, of course, is the message: While Plus One's resemblance to 'N Sync is obvious, it's unlikely we'll hear those pop princes singing a song called "God Is In this Place." Why no one thought of putting together a boy band for the Christian market earlier is anyone's guess, but now that they have, we can be thankful this project was handled with integrity. What could have been a cheesy exercise in making a fast buck instead is an impressive pop debut, thanks to the vocal talents of the group's five members and the crack team of producers and songwriters that came on board. Pop mastermind David Foster works his magic on several cuts, including the title track and the lovely ballad "My Friend." Buster & Shavoni, whose credits include the PRINCE OF EGYPT soundtrack, turn out a groove-heavy dance number, "My Life." Most of these songs discuss God's faithfulness in the broadest of strokes, with lyrics vague enough not to scare off mainstream radio outlets, a likely next step for these guys -- after all, they already have a solid radio hit in "Written on My Heart." Move over 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys -- Plus One are ready to join the club. Lisa Zhito
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Plus One's debut album The Promise proves that the CCM quintet are just as talented as their secular boy-band counterparts. The smooth harmonies and clean pop production on songs like "When Your Spirit Gets Weak," "Here in My Heart," "God Is in This Place," and the title track are especially enjoyable highlights from this strong first effort.

    I got this CD for my birthday last year and when I went to Krogers one day, I decided to go ahead and listen to it because I have never heard of them. I listened to it now I listen to it all the time and it is the best CD I have ever owned. I know every song word for word and it is awesome. I LOVE IT!!!!

    Plus One is awesome!!!

    Plus One have the pop sound going on, but they have an amazing message. Sending the word of God out to people all over the world and not being ashamed about their faith in God makes them GREAT!!! I have been waiting to hear a CD with that kind of message and now that Plus One have entered the scene, their CD is never out of my stereo. I listen to it all the time. They have really proved themselves to be Christians and I admire them for it.

    Plus One is Number One in My Heart!

    Everyone always said that Plus One sounded like N'sync but I never believed it until I heard their song ''The Promise'' on the radio. N'sync has always been my favorite non-Christian band and when I began to listen only to Christian music, I was pleased to find a band just like N'sync. If you love N'sync and Christ, then this is the CD for you!

    a not a miss CD

    I love Plus One!!! When I first heard of them, I was so happy. Their was actually someone out there that sounded Nsync but has way better lyrics. For all those Nsync fans out there, u got to try Plus One. I can't wait till their new CD comes out in 2002. Go Plus One!!!

    A CD you can't live without!!

    The Promise by Plus One rocked Christian music with a wave of explosive pop! This kind of music wasn't normally heard on a christian radio station. When I first heard ''Written On My Heart'' I thought the Backstreet Boys had gotten saved!! Their CD is guaranteed to move your feet and keep ya singing along!

    5 stars is not enough!!!

    The Promise is one of my favorite albums ever...you will never get tired of this one! With fun pop songs (Written On My Heart, My Life) and sweet ballads (Last Flight Out, Here In My Heart) this album has something for everyone. If you like pop music at all, you should buy this album!

    The Promise

    a regular boy band with a POSITIVE message; not singing on and on about pain or heartbreak or anything like that, but about God. Even the love songs they do have aren't soooo cheesy. I have noticed one thing about other people's reviews though: people either love 'em or hate 'em. Personally, I love em. These guys may be sorta new on the scene but they will go far.

    The Best People on the song chart since the dawn of time!

    I received +1's album ''The Promise'' for Christmas. I think that everysong is great. I think that the people who disrespected +1 they should really be Christians before they rate +1 at three stars or four stars just because they don't write their own songs. I hope you buy +1's ablum because most of the songs are really good even if +1 didn't write them.

    boy band or not

    I usually can't stand boy bands because the lyrics are sappy and have no meaning beyond ''oh baby I love you lets do it'' which is probably why my grandmother bought this album for my younger sister and not me. As I listened to this though I came upon something rather strange. I can no loner say that I loathe all boy bands. I am completely addicted to this cd.Some of the tracks werent about religion and even those werent so sugary that they make you feel sick to your stocach. I had to take off one star because the boys don't write their own songs or play their own insturments.

    Plus One is Amazing!

    Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite CDs. I love listening to it. Every song is GREAT. You've got the funky ''My Life'' the beautiful ballad of ''Last Flight Out'' and the upbeat ''I Run To You.'' I absolutely love this CD and highly recommend it!!

    plus one are a gift from God!

    I love this CD! These are five gifted guys that have wonderful voices and awesome lyrics. I've been waiting for a cd like this for a long time. This is one of those CD's that you'll never get sick of. I listen to it over and over and over again! It has helped me though a difficult time in my life. It's good on the ears but also speaks to the heart. If you like pop music, check this cd out...you won't be disapointed. God Bless!
