Montrell is the man

"I tell you what, I am a Christian and I love jazzy, soulful music. So naturally, I was inclined to listen to D'Angelo back in the day. However, D'Angelo is not good for the spirit. I wasn't getting that sound from any other gospel artist. Some tried, but then came this album. Man, I couldn't get enough of it. The grooves are tight as the Mint. This was a breakthrough album and I'm ready for another one. Unfortunately, somebody stole my CD and I haven't listened to it in about a year."
An Incredible Album

"REALIZE this album was released SIX years ago and still holds it own against this "Neo-Soul" mess. Before Musiq Soulchild was missing notes, Montrell was hitting them. This album came along when everybody was in a group (Commissioned, Take 6) and he stepped out alone, with no choir or any of the normal "gospel music safety nets". Montrell was homeless at one time and picked himself up to proclaim for the kingdom of God. Then church folks who won't witness to their dog, downgrade something so special. This album made gospel music cool to me when I was in a drug-infested high school. It made me stronger in knowing that God could sound different and still be powerful. I have become an artist and I give credit to Montrell and others like Tony Rich and Lauryn Hill for my sound. Groundbreaking. Thanks 'Trell."

"I came to know Montrel Darett because there were some grumblings as to why he wasn't nominated for a Stellar award for best new artist this year.Now I see why! He is absolutely off the hinges! This album is very funky and groove oriented. As well, Montrell talks about issues(which by the way is one of cuts off this album)that the church tends to not deal with such as racism, fornication and just plain old brokeness.Now don't make a mistake and think that this album is sad, because it definitely isn't:however, it definitely makes you pause and think about your walk with the Lord.This album also shows that the Gospel can be ministered in song in a very contemporary and urban way. Montrell is a real talent and is definitely anoited by the Lord to do this work .This album is worth every red cent."
