Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
This is the best Sweet Honey in the Rock album of all. The songwriting stresses description over prescription, raising questions rather than pushing answers, on songs about AIDS, the homeless, racism, and sexism. Never have the group's arrangements been as ambitious or as successful as they are here. Highlights include Kahlil's nine-minute scat piece, "Fulani Chant," gorgeously re-harmonized versions of songs by R&B star Donny Hathaway and folk figure Buffy Saint Marie, and a pair of deep blues. --Geoffrey Himes

CD Reviews

Phenomenal
08/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is gospel, spirituals, African music, and creative innovation, and brought to life through the remarkably beautiful voices of Sweet Honey In The Rock. The music is universal--familiar, but not ordinary--and the lyrics profound and intelligent. I am in general not a buyer of gospel type music, but this is one of my all-time favorite CDs. Some of the songs are stunningly beautiful."

"This stands among one of my favorite Sweet Honey recordings. "I Be Your Water" is one of thier songs that sticks in one's mind after hearing it. There is so much her to enjoy and to educate. I'd advise just about anyone to give it a listen."
