When Fred Hammond is in the house, you just know that the praise and worship are going to stir your soul. His music is a whirlwind of urban R&B and old-time, righteous gospel. And his message is one of redemption and faith. In that sense, Speak Those Things is similar to previous chart-toppers The Spirit of David and Pages of Life: Chapters 1 & 2. But Hammond, founder and former front man of the renowned gospel group Commissioned, just keeps getting better. "You Are My Daily Bread" and "Lord of the Harvest" kick off the release with high energy, while Hammond follows with the silky smooth "Show Yourself Strong." But the strength of Speak Those Things lies somewhere in the middle, on slower, midtempo tracks like "You Are My Life" and "Great," the latter featuring guest appearances by Mary Mary and the Singletons. Here, the subtleties of Hammond's genius show as he pushes the boundaries of contemporary gospel. While he redefines the genre, Fred Hammond remains an authority of faith. --Michael Lyttle

"God has done it again through Fred..... I believe anytime you buy a new album from an artist you should not expect to hear the exact same thing you heard on their previous album. Especially in Christian music, when the music is Spirit-inspired, such as this project, you should expect God to give the artist a different interpretation of the same message---Jesus Christ. Fred has truly shown himself a music virtuoso with this album, because it's not exactly what we are all accustomed to but its just as good if not better, and it ministers. I can't stop playing the album, from Daily bread to That ain't nothin, nothing on this album is skip worthy... I promise if you will give the album a chance you WILL BE BLESSED.... I can play this album for praise and worship before church on Sunday, I can ride to this album, or I can bump it at the Jesus Party (Great!), it's all in there. Praise God for what he is doing through our brother in Christ Fred Hammond"

"I received this CD (by request) as a birthday present in February and fell in love with it the first time I heard it. So many wonderful songs that make me either want to dance for the Lord or lift my hands and bask in his presence. My favorites are Lord of the Harvest, Show Yourself Strong, You are my Life, Great, Praise Him Through the Night, He is Not Just a Man, My My My God is Good, and Song of Strength.This is truly one of Fred Hammond's greatest. I highly reccommend it to anyone who loves music that gives glory to our Lord, God and Savior--Jesus Christ."
It's Totally Amazing!

"It's amazing how God allows Fred Hammond to continue to bless His people with wonderful "Word-filled" music. Pages of Life 1&2 will always be a classic, but POL 3 is right up there with it. Fred continued the Gospel funk with the first 2 tracks, and he still found a way to bring it all home with #9, "Praise Him through the Night." The whole album is filled with words of inspiration and love. Everyone who listens to this will truely find themselves "Speaking Those Things." Fred, thank you for allowing God to continue to pour into your life. Yet, you remained obedient and shared that with the rest of the world. Continue to be a blessing to the body of Christ."
