Reviews - What do customers think about Vertical?

When I look up!  Sep 10, 2005
I must admit, I don't usually go for this type of music. I had to get this CD after discovering my all time favourite singer, Donna Summer, featured on a song. I thought that song, and maybe a couple others would be good, and the rest filler.

Was I wrong or what!! Darwin Hobbs is a gospel singer who sounds somewhat like Luther Vandross, and his style is straight R&B, very well produced.

Opening track `Everyday' is a great introduction to this CD. Featuring Michael McDonald (whose voice I love), it is a very happy, upbeat, groovy dance number, extolling God's goodness everyday.

The Luther connection is even more pronounced on the next track, a cover of Luther's beautiful ballad `So Amazing', which stays remarkably true to the original, but with God slipped in here and there. Great backing vocals from gospel girl group Virtue. Darwin sounds exactly like Luther on this song.

`Deeper' is another upbeat funky number. About wanting to go deeper with God.

Next up is the mid tempo `Cast all your cares', with lyrics about casting all our cares onto The Lord, done as a song from God to us. Some retro sounding organ on this one. The final 2 or so minutes take on a gospel choir fervor. Great!

`Just singing of you' is a beautiful ballad about how he loves just singing of You!!! Again, some great organ playing, and some Kirk Franklyn style choir on this one.

Then comes my reason for getting this CD. `When I look up' is a beautiful ballad with birds tweeting at the beginning, giving a feel of nature, and lyrics about how we need God to fill the hole inside of us. When I look up/I look to Christ/who fills my cup. Donna Summer is stunning on this song with her rich vocals, and Darwin more than holds his own too.

`My promise to you' is a deeply moving ballad. Again, done as a song from God to us. We can always count on God coming through, that's his promise to us. He'll never give us more than we can bear. Beautiful, and much needed hope for running this race on earth.

`A medley of worship' surprisingly turned out to be my favourite song. An absolutely stunning ballad which comprises `You are my hiding place', `Great is your mercy', `El Shaddai' and , `You are holy', with a powerful prayer spoken. Delicate instrumentation, lush strings, tender piano tinklings, an excellent backing choir, and a stellar performance from Darwin. A worthy offering to The Lord.

Closing the CD on an upbeat note is `Crown him lord' (song title says it all) a stomping horn laden dance song with a great joyous sounding choir.

The Luther of Gospel  Sep 16, 2003
What an amazing voice! This is one of my favourite Gospel CD that I listen to every Sunday to put me in a mellow frame of mind. All of the songs are great and I would recommend you to spend your money on this CD. It is worth it!
Annointed!!  May 7, 2003
Outstanding! You can hear in the words of every song that he loves the Lord. I have been truly blessed by this album.
Awesome voice  Jan 16, 2003
Darwin Hobbs is an awesome talent in the gospel music industry. This album is truly a great collaboration of song material. Starting with the first cut "Everyday". I have always been a fan of Michael McDonald ever since childhood. So, that made this song even better. I love "Singing of You" and it's one of my favorites. The melody just soothes the soul and put's you in a mode of worship. The "Worship Medley"....what can I say? This is Darwin at his best. This cut is just magnificent. As a matter of fact, I just listened to it about 5 times before I came into work this morning. "Deeper" is a tight little groove kind of on the R&B tip. Just a little somethin somethin to getcha head bobbing. "So Amazing" of course sounds like Luther Vandross stepped in on some of the vocals. I can definitely hear the similarities. "Crown Him Lord" is a very fitting end to this wonderful Praise and Worship experience. It's exuberant chant of "Crown Him Lord" just makes you want to leap to your feet. I look forward to Darwin's next project, and I hope he takes it to another level. He's got his work cut out for him if he's going to top this one. Overall I give this album an A. I would have given it an A+, but there were two cuts on the album-Track 6&7-that I did not like as much as the others.
Outstanding CD  Jun 27, 2002
This is one of the best CD's that I have ever purchased in my life. I initially purchased it for one song (Everyday)which I like so, so very much, but as I listened to each of the songs, I discovered that this entire CD is absolutely awesome. Very seldom do you find a CD where every song captures your attention...but this one does. I love it so much. I have had it for about 2 weeks, and I listen to it everyday. It is my favorite CD. Darwin Hobbs does such a great job with variety on this CD. I just can't say enough about it. Do yourself a favor and buy it. YOU WILL HAVE NO REGRETS!

An extremely happy fan...Jae Lee/Atlanta, GA
