Energizing, invigorating, rythmic and divine !

"The text and rythems on this wonderful CD have inspired me time and time again to get up, move on and rise above and beyond my own limits. I really think this is what the artists wanted and that is exactly what they have acheived - at least with me! The text is deep, wise and loving, while the music is soothing on some numbers or invigorating like a sparkling, fresh shower on others. I thank the artists behind this musical creation for working together to make a great CD."
A Worthy Addition to the Group's Discography

"Like the ensemble's three previous albums, "A Time for Healing" features uplifting grooves, a marvelous blend of old and new, brilliant instrumentation, and harmonies that truly are heavenly. Director Gary Hines and company expertly excel on cuts like "Hold On (Change Is Comin'"), a song that owes much to the music of the late Roger Troutman, "Love Will Never Change," a mellow and compassionate tune, "God Cares," a song that should be an anthem for the faithful, and the title cut. The more traditional offering, "We Are Gonna Make It Through," soars with majesty and power while the group "gets down" with remakes of the classics "Love Train" and "You Can Make It If You Try."
The best cut, however, is "So Far Away" which begins with an awesome trumpet solo and then jumps into a Calypso-flavored rhythm featuring a sample of the 60's hit "Girl from Ipanema." One can't stay seated when hearing this one.
Notably missing is Ann Nesby, soloist for many of the group's first successes, as well as the producing team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Hopefully, the trio will return for some future musical endeavors."
Superb melodies which are very motivational and inspiring.

"This is the first Sounds of Blackness album I've ever heard and I thought it was GREAT. Their melodies are lovely and the words very inspirational - such as God Cares and You can make it if you try. Everyone who hears these messages should really try and take them to heart.I also like the modern feel to their music which does not at all detract from the messages of their songs. In fact, I believe this should help to draw more people to listen to their songs.Great work guys!"
