Karen Clark Sheard in Praise & Worship Mode Mar 10, 2007
Karen Clark Sheard is one of 'dem bad sangers with an instrument that can rip music to shreds. I was first introduced to her as a very young child in the late 80s when my mom would repeatedly listen to the Clark Sisters. As I got older, I would hear more people talking about Karen and the power that she harnesses. I bought this CD in January 2006 when it came out, but I've just gotten the chance to listen to it about a month ago. The first thing I noticed about the CD is that it presents Karen in a more Praise&Worship mode and so she's a little more laidback than usual. With Israel Houghton and Aaron Lindsey lending much of the production, that's a given.
REJOICE AND BE GLAD--As the opener, you can already tell that this is going to be a different Karen musical experience. It has that trademark "Israel" sound with Karen's vocals attached. The song is live, and the backing choir fits the song well. It has a celebratory feel to it through and through. A-
I NEVER WILL/YOU BOUGHT THE SUNSHINE--This probably would've served as a stronger opening cut. She shows on this song her vocal prowress as she slays the listener with exhortations to the King of Kings. She's even more menacing when she brings in her old Clark Sisters' cut Sunshine. This song is great. It's a good song. A
Authority--Another Israel-produced cut. It has that sound to it. The song speaks to the authority of God that some people forget about, so call on and trust in that authority. I like the vocal knife-cutting she does at the end with the scats. I saw her perform this live and she ripped it. A
FAVOR--This 10 minute song beautifully follows the previous song of Authority because it speaks of the favor of God which is unmerited and is not something that someone just gets. It's in line with God's will and His authority. It's a praise&worship song that is strong, and she sounds a little winded at times because she's letting her soul and voice minister to this cut. My favorite part is when she does the echoes. That's worth the price of the CD and it's a Karen vocal trademark. A+
SHOW ME YOUR GLORY--A true worship slower song that talks about God showing His true and uninhbited glory. It's a beautiful song that you have to be in a worship mode or just a natural praiser to truly appreciate its message. A
OH THE GLORY OF HIS PRESENCE--This follows the theme of the previous song and it's now that the listener has realized God's authority, witnessed His favor through the Word and through personal experience, have asked to transcend to another spirit state seeing His glory and now can feel the glory of His presence. God blesses her instrument as she minsisters in this song. A
THE LORD'S PRAYER/FOREVER--This is just true unadulterated praise as Karen takes it there praising the greatness of God starting off with part of The Lord's Prayer and then going into forever. She lets out some power notes here. I love this song even though it's short. A+
HALLELUJAH--A drum-led praise song that has the trademark 2-stepping dance that people in the church does. Here is trademark Karen again.
IT'S NOT OVER--I enjoy this song that speaks to it not being over. She lets the listener have it with some growls, riffs and just a good message.
The last 3 songs are all produced by Karen's close cousin, PAJAM, J. Moss. It's truly a different sound than the P&W of the former cuts, and I prefer Karen in that mold than this sleek, polished, same-sounding productions of PAJAM. In YOU SHOWED ME, she lets out a breathtaking power note that's astonishing.
Overall, this is a nice CD to showcase Karen's talent in a different mold. She handles the material well, and while at some points, she seems like she's vocally adjusting/finding her way, she still shows her talent by letting God minister and not just her voice. It's a good CD. It's a must-have for P&W aficionados, for Gospel enthusiasts and for Karen Clark Sheard fans.
Another Hit Creation Mar 8, 2007
This is a great CD overall. It is filled with a n excellent balance of praise & worship songs. Very easy listening and mellow. I love the entire CD.
Not what I expected Dec 11, 2006
I am a huge fan of Karen Clark Sheard. I have all of her Cds so I knew that if I bought this cd without listening to it first I would not be disappointed. However, I was very disappointed after listening to it. The only song that I really like is "Favor." She is very talented and I love her voice and song arrangements. I love her to death but this cd is just not working for me.
"You Showed Me" is lovely! Sep 4, 2006
I received this song as part of a collaborative CD so I can only rate "You Showed Me". I love it! "You Showed Me" gives praise, honor, and glory to God for everything He shows us through His unconditional love. I wholeheartedly recommend it for worship. You will be blessed by this song.
