CD Reviews

You Got The Love
Daniel Jason | New York, NY | 03/14/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Divinely-inspired modern dance music secular enough for the club crowd but spiritual enough for Staton's Christian fans. Impeccably produced by K-Klass, with the fabulous added bonus of the Now Voyager remix of "You Got The Love" recently featured on the closing credits of the final "Sex and the City" episode. The new version of "Young Hearts Run Free," while inferior to the original, is infinitely more danceable. It's nowhere near as terrific as "Love On Love," "What Do You Want and "Love Has Come To Stay" -- all of which are dancefloor stormers -- and "Outside In", a terrific midtempo ballad with crystalline production. "You're Still the Lightning," written by vastly underrated dance diva Billie Ray Martin, is also a highlight. Don't miss this record, which has inexcusably remained unreleased in the U.S. Do make sure to get the UK import; the Japanese version doesn't include "You Got The Love.""
A must for all those waiting for a Candi Staton secular disc

"After seventeen years, Candi's back! James Horracks and Thomas Foley of React Records in London persuaded Candi to record a secular CD, and it's GREAT! Excellent arrangements, and songs with lyrics she could agree to (all songs have a message, some more subtle than others). My personal favorite is the opening track, "Love Yourself," though "Outside In," "Love on Love" (written for Candi by Boy George), and a millenium remake of "Young Hearts Run Free," are all excellent. Great music here! Totally worth the import price."
Sex and The City and more!

"I got this CD for the Sex and the City song and was surprised by how great it is. I like the first song-Love Yourself MORE than You Got the Love. This is my first exposure to her-and it is a great introduction to her music."
