"I have to say that KIrk's album has blessed me during some of the darkest days of my life. This album has restored my joy many times in the last few months. Kirk has been ridiculed about his success in his style. I feel it works, and his music makes me feel good in the Lord. As Larry Norman once said, "Why should the devil get all the good music"? God Bless you Kirk Franklin, your music has blessed me with joy."

"When the single "Stomp" was released on radio and debuted on MTV, controversy loomed over the heads of Kirk Franklin and God's Property, the Texas-based young adult gospel choir. What people failed to realize was that this song was a sigh of relief for everyone in gospel music. It inspired a new and youthful Christian audience and no artist or any album created before it in the history of gospel music had sold anywhere close to 3 million records. Regardless of the album sales, although 1997 would prove to be a successful and even tumultuous year for both Kirk Franklin and God's Property, the album does what most gospel recordings are supposed to do; edify God and create an awesome atmosphere of praise & worship. It's a phenomenal record and one of Kirk Franklin's greatest projects ever produced. There is so much depth on this album. The sound quality is outstanding, God's Property has powerful voices, the vocal & musical arrangements are essential and the spirit of this album is revolutionary. This album was also bolstered by the audio sweetening of Mark Williams & Kevin Bond and guided by production duo Buster & Shavoni, who produced with Kirk Franklin on the "Whatcha Lookin' 4" album. Not only did Kirk write and produce 9 of the 13 songs presented but also got some help from G.P. members Greg Brown, Larron Vaughn, Myron Butler, (before introducing Levi) & Robert "Sput" Searight (producer/keyboardist/percussionist) with writing expertise. The most anointed songs are "More Than I Can Bear," the harmonious "Love," the funk-filled "Up Above My Head," "Sweet Spirit," "It's Raining," [both songs feature Caltomeesh "Candy" West's sensational jazzy vocal style] "So Good," "My Life Is In Your Hands," (which also appears on Spike Lee's "Get On The Bus" movie soundtrack) the sincere "He'll Take The Pain Away," and the tear-shedding "The Storm Is Over Now." In 1998, G.P. won some major accolades for this record and finished the year with 8 million more copies sold before the release of "The Nu Nation Project," another Kirk Franklin commercial masterpiece. We miss you, G.P.!! For 2 solid years, God's Property made a statement and opened another door that will never be shut in gospel music!!"

"This CD has a good mixture of slow, peaceful songs, and fast, "get-up-and-dance" songs. Some of these songs have really helped me a lot when I'm troubled: "More Than I Can Bear" reminds me that he'll never give me too much to take on, no matter how hard it seems... "Faith" reminds me to "keep the faith" and that will help you be strong... And the all-time favorite, "Stomp!" is awesome for youth rallies and stuff! Everyone I know loves that song. I especially recommend this CD if you're a youth leader and you're looking for some rowdy music that teenagers love. But don't rely on just this CD, because there are only so many fast songs on here that you can get tired of after the first several times."
