THIS CD WAS TERRIFIC !!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This cd was truly heart-warming. I especially love the song "Don't Let Me Fall". I like this song mainly because we all want the Lord to be with us at all times. But there are times when we feel as though we cannot make it. In those times, the Lord takes over and he holds us. He will not let us fall. The cd will have you on your feet praising God. This is a great gift for anyone whether or not they like gospel music. Detrick Haddon is a very inspirational young man. If you thought that Kirk Franklin had the place rocking, you should listen to this cd. Detrick Haddon is on top now !!!!! - A VERY BIG FAN"
KEEP ON PRAISIN' HIM DIETRICK!

"All praises be to GOD and HIS perfect holiness! I love this CD. It has great ballads & bumps. This young man is truly anointed. I've also seen his "Chainbreaker" video. That is also a definite "must have" and so is this CD. GET IT! GET IT! GET IT!"
Good but he's done better

"I first heard Haddon's music thanks to the smooth ballad "Sinner's Prayer" and went in search of the CD, LOST AND FOUND, and loved it. Since then, I've begun to borrow some of his other music from the library to see if would hold its own against that disc. On this one, Haddon is using all live instrumentation (no keyboard or drum programming)and tends toward a more traditional gospel sound for the most part rather than the R&B flavour dominating LOST AND FOUND.
"The Potter" paraphrases the simple truth that we are unmolded clay in the hands of God...still waiting to be perfected. It has almost a 70s soul feel with its organ and popping bass. "Don't Let me Fall" uses wailing 80s rock guitar in the mix in a song that reminds me of a slow jam I can't quite place. "Rise and Be Healed" is probably the strongest tune here ("You may be a lame man and you can't even walk/Rise and be healed/You may be a dumb man and you can't even talk/Rise and be healed"), proclaiming God's desire to heal people both physically and emotionally. "Holy,Holy" uses a guest appearance by Dietrich's mom Dr. Joyce Haddon for some great call and response vocals (particularly when Dietrich sings "Mama you taught me how to love Him, but now I love Him for myself" and she answers back "Keep on loving Jesus, baby!". "Sweeter" is a simple anthem of encouragement ("Weepin' just endure for a night, it's gonna get better,better,better as the day go by..") "Outpour" is based around Acts 2:17-18, the verse explaining that God's Spirit will be felt even more as the world approaches its final days. ("We need an outpour of Your Spirit, Lord/Send it down,send it down...") It's a slow hymn that would feel right at home in Sunday services.
There aren't any really awful songs but I could really do without the "interview" cuts (5 of them) in between the songs, as well as the "Welcome You (Interlude)" and "Welcome You (Reprise)". These devices of using partial tunes to bookend an album has become almost a cliche and brings the album as a whole down.
If you're new to Haddon I wouldn't start here..I'd go with LOST AND FOUND or CROSSROADS instead. But if you already are a fan of his, you'll probably want this."
