Perhaps the most controversial artist in contemporary Christian music history, Michael English hit his highest, and lowest, points with the 1995 release Hope. The album helped English win three Dove awards, which he promptly returned after admitting an extramarital affair with another CCM artist. Sadly, the judgmental industry blacklisted the talented singer. Politics and drama aside, Hope is a slick, Brown Bannister-produced effort designed to showcase English's powerful talents. And it does just that, building on the vocal tradition English inherited as a member of the Gaither Vocal Band. He hits a wide range of notes and emotions with such numbers as "Save Me," "A Place Called Hope," and "Always for You." When it comes to pure, flat-out singing, few in the CCM realm can match what English achieves on this album. --Michael Lyttle

"This CD has inspired me as a person. After I heard the song Savior, I thought how many people really need a Savior, my Savior. There is not one song on this album that does not lift you up and make you feel like you can win the world for Christ. I really wasn't a big Michael English fan until I heard one of my friends sing Savior. Then I got this CD, and now he is one of my favorite artist I have ever heard. I would highly suggest you consider this album to be on the top of you list."

"Though not a Michael English follower, after having heard someone sing "Holding Out Hope to You" off of this album, I knew I had to get it. Two years later, I finally found it. Listening to it is an incredible thing. Michael's voice comes across so emotional, not to mention extremely easy to listen to. All of the songs on Hope are great; check it out lest you miss a good album!"
