Reviews - What do customers think about Life Changing?

Life Changing  Mar 8, 2007
This is the best CD I have listen to in a long time, I can't stop playing it. It makes me feel closer to God when I listen to the CD.
'Umm Umm Umm GOOOOODDDD to the last track!'  Mar 7, 2007
I bought the cd on the strength of 'Umm Good' and I have to say that I have been thoroughly pleased from beginning to end. Then entire cd is wonderful and my favorite besides the 'Umm Good' is 'Where Would I Be'. His lyrics are soothing and very thought provocative which instigates thanksgiving and praise!

Kudo's to you Smokie!!! Excellent piece of work!!!
`Life Changing' is Smokie Norful's ........  Feb 12, 2007
`Life Changing' is Smokie Norful's third album since his formidable debut `I Need You Now' in 2002. If you have not yet heard him I recommend `Life Changing' to you as it is a faultless platform of his prowess. Smokie Norful's versatile vocal has a natural attractive gentle tone that is supported by experienced music production; the result is polished, direct in delivery and solidly planted in modern gospel genre.

It is rare to see genuine male solo artists appear that have the full package, possessing `the voice' yet confidently and uniquely interpreting songs emotionally and spiritually in a very audible way, potentially with significant longevity as a recording artist. I'd say that Smokie Norful fits the bill.

The matter of favourite tracks is subjective, of course. Tricky too, but I'd say `Celebrate' is a great introduction to the album, the slick trip `Great & Mighty', Smokie bares his heart and soul in `Run Til I Finish', the simple yet effective `More Than Anything', Smokie may doff his cap to Andrae Crouch with `In Time' and straight-ahead `Right Now'. Smokie rounds things up with a more than credible rendition of Whitney Houston's `Run To You'.

Though no track truly escapes the familiar modern gospel genre boundary, there are no weak or out of place ones here. You will repeatedly listen to `Life Changing' from start to finish without the reflex flick of the skip (or eject) button coming into play.

Not impressed!  Jan 11, 2007
This cd is lackluster at best. The best song on it is Um Good, and it's not that great either. Perhaps I would think better of this cd if it had been Smokie's freshman project. But this is the 3rd cd from him and I expected it to at least meet, if not exceed, the bar set by the first 2 projects. I keep hoping that it will grow on me, but that hasn't happened.
R&B Pleasant to the Soul...  Nov 15, 2006
LIFE CHANGING is one of those CDs where the whole is even better than the parts, where the individual songs are consistently good, but together they are real good. Some Christian CDs have one or two standout tracks, with the rest mediocre, but not this soulful CD, no need to hit the skip track button.

The lyrics are not complex or theologically deep, but they convey authenticity, love and gratitude for the Lord, and are sung with that fluid Smokie Norful voice that draws the soul into the worship experience. The overall theme of the songs is that during good times or bad, with Christ we'll be alright and have victory worth praising and celebrating Him for.

Musically, all but about three songs are fairly mellow R&B (or "urban adult contemporary," some would say), one of which, "Run Til I Finish," highlights Norful's piano along with his voice (but it's strange to me that a song about running is so slow). "Put Your Hands Together" has a hint of funk. My favorites are the most upbeat songs, "Celebrate" and the peppy "Great and Mighty," that just leaves me smiling.

I have not heard Norful's other CD yet, and was led to this one after being introduced to Norful as one of the guest vocalists on Ramsey Lewis' excellent gospel/jazz piano CD, With One Voice. 4.5 stars.
