"I had the pleasure of being blessed by Farley's mixing abilities in person, this man can get it goin!!! So naturally I was excited when I found a cd that he mixed. When I put it in my player, those thumpin, bassy, get down and dance tunes came through. I am naturally a lover of vocals on tracks, especially house music, but Farley was showing a much different side on this cd. I am not going to say it is bad, it is not, and I respect Farley for his beliefs, but if I had know this cd is mostly a comfirmation of Farley's belief in Jesus, I probably would not have purchased it. I Love Sounds of Blackness, their message is uplifting, but this cd was alll vocal's praising God. So if you want an awesome Christian house cd, BUY THIS CD! If not stick to seeing him live. He is still one of the kings of house."

"While this cd will never compare to the way Farley used to spin back in the days of 102.7 WBMX (Chicago), it still holds its own. After seeing the track listing and hearing the first track it becomes obvious that this is a Gospel project. Since the vocal styles of the really hot soulful House records are Gospel-influenced, to have a Gospel directed cd comes as no surprise to me. Farley appears to be the first DJ to go in this direction but I already know that he's not going to be the last. Now on to the actual music; it's hot. The 4/4 beats on Tracks One and Three--his productions--are typical Farley (called the "Farley Foot" back in the day). You get a backtracking here, a flange there and a really quick sermon on top of a popular bassline. That's reminiscent of how it was done back in the day. Favorite tracks are "Child Of God" and "No Competition/FIM" (I especially love the beat and the sound in the beginning of the transition--classic Farley). Jackmaster Funk still has it goin' on!"
