Salute 4Him - decade dedicated to His excellence
Jose B. T. Laurent | 04/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am so thankful for the gifts of those 4 guys. They have been consistent in their music, message, sensitivity and standard - that is, taken the Word of God to their heart and given it back out to us, in song. It shows in the decade of hits: that they have constantly been reaching the center of hearts - of the mark. Their interpretation, despite the changing scenes and genres, remained true, inspiring, original, fresh and fervent.

I was most dismayed at learning of the parting of ways, though I am aware that things are 'but for a season'; and of a need for growth and development. My one regret is that I did not see them live in concert - or meet them. (Even now, I am scrambling to see whether there's a chance to see them in final concert, at a venue close enough to the Caribbean). I really hope also that I can get the opportunity to purchase some videos of them 'in concert' - with snippets of interviews, background information etc - in time.

This album, a compilation of some hits, is no less an indication of the great repository of talent with which God blessed them. I have several favourites - and some lines or 'hooks' are just simply unforgettable; some rhythms and harmonies absolutely stunning. Their voices are such a powerful blend it is unbelievable. I sometimes wondered where one began and another ended. But even so, I was not surprised when, on visiting the website, I saw a menu indicating who sings lead on the songs! It seemed that many other fans may felt the same way and were asking, so the answers had to be supplied. I am not sure if we will see a combination or the likes of such sounds right now.

When I recently heard in particular 'The Only Thing I Need' for the first time, I could only stop what I was doing and with arms outstretched just raise my face to the sky, tears in my eyes and heart, letting the words and music wash over me. That song is praise and worship, surrender, in action; and one that will drive one to one's knees - every time. It was overwhelming.... this fullness, richness, presence and greatness of God in the song.

Together, as a cord, they were powerful. (It grieves me so to speak of them in the past tense....!) But their work will stand the test of time. Individually, I trust that with their different or separate paths, God will continue to take each further and work 'new works' in them. I am hopeful and intrigued to learn when or where "Chapter Two...." will occur.

Truly, an exx-cel-lent album.

"My favorite track is number 9 - "Before the River Came"!! Whoo!! I love this song and I want you to experience what I have while listening to this song. This song represents the cry of every Christian...especially if we want to be pure and holy.

I tell you...its something, because when I first bought the CD, it was hard for me to get with. Until one day, I popped it into the CD player and I fell in love with the style, rythm and LYRICS of EVERY song. I really recommend that every believer purchase this CD. I thought that it wasnt my style of praise and worship...but, I thought wrong. These songs give you something to relate to. Track 4 encourages the youth and young people to stand firm on the Word of God because they are the examples to younger and future generations. The youth need to be encouraged; therefore, this album is suitable for the young and young at heart!! I get excited talking about it. Purchase this album and let the Lord use you mightily!!"
