"I don't care what others think but as for listening to this cd I think it is the best cd out there that shows what dc Talk was when they first started. Sure It may sound horrible, but if you really are a DCT fan then you can understand why the first cd was average and the rest were above awesome. For all those that want to trash this cd I will say this: This cd is the basis of why tobyMac returned to rap music after all those years with Mike and Kevin. A must for any serious DCT fan."
Not good, but not entirely bad.

"I bought this cd online but realized soon afterwards that it was hard to listen to...but Heavenbound was so impressive I cannot give it a bad rating.
First of all, of course it's bad! It was their first cd, it was the late '80s and Kevin was not a prominent member. But rewind, give them grace and see how far they've come, and you'll appreciate how they started out, however bad it was.
However, I see no reason for anyone but a die-hard fan to buy this cd. Compared to the other incredible selection of Christian music that is out now, it's a pitiful little dot in the corner. But it signifies the start of successful Christian rap/hip hop, so it's pretty interesting as far as Christian music history goes. But like I said, it's not worth it if you don't know the group. Don't "start here", and in fact, don't even really end here. It's more interesting than "good".
Overall, it's not the greatest...but if you think it's worth the buy for Heavenbound, then do it, because the song is really lyrically great."
