CD Reviews

Excellent writing..Hard to enjoy because he talks through it
Harvey Rupert | Mineapolis, MN United States | 10/21/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"On Kirk Franklin's latest album "The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin" he proclaims that his "rebirth" taught him that it has to all be about the music rather than him. This is evident in the fact that he is silent through most of the album. He lets the message and the music take center stage. Well, I would like to see Donald become reborn as well. I have to say..the writing is wonderful, but there are alot of missed opportunities on this album. First, Donald talks through almost every song-distracting from the words, music and other singers. Second, despite have a number of outstanding guest appearances (all with stronger voices than him) he chooses to reduce their contribution to singing second or third verses and choruses (with exception of the Lalah Hathaway and Ramsey Lewis song). I was so excited about this album and while I think the musicianship and message are wonderful, I am distracted from the message by all of his antics on this cd. Furthermore, while Donald is a great performer and writer, I think Donald needs to realize that he doesn't have very strong vocals and every now and then should let others take hold of the microphone or atleast let the stronger singer lead the song. In order to be a good leader, sometimes you have to know when to follow. Sorry if this review is inconsistent with the others, but it had to be said. While listening to this album,I felt like I was at a really great concert, but distracted by those around me holding side conversations."
Dont Forget To Remember

"''Dont Forget to Remember'' with Lalah Hathaway and Ramsey Lewis has got to be my favorite song from this album...although this is overall a very good effort."
So encouraging

"this cd blew me away! ive always liked D. Lawrence so i naturally pick it up. i was seriously blown away. from the first song to the last. 'healed" is so encouraging and uplifting! no to mention catchy. the same for "you covered me" (love Hez walker) 'dont forget to remember" is so moving! Faith evens on "say a prayer"! that girl! and how bout "lamb"! im telling need this cd! its very encouraging!"
