The Power of One reviews
Izrael's Latest Album is a Must Have!
Israel Houghton's latest venture is quite refreshing. From start to finish, this is an exciting and powerful album full of dynamic music, energized vocals, and inspirational lyrics. This contemporary album is relevant to not just young people, but ALL people around the globe.
"The Power of One" doesn't stray from its Christian roots as it mixes (very well) with varying musical styles and artists Chevelle Franklyn, Mary Mary, Martin Smith (of "Delirious?"), and tobyMac. Each song carries its own weight and together each song blends seamlessly.
There is something for everyone on this album:
After the short introduction (in a child's voice) on "My Name Iz", Israel gets it going with 'get up and sing' songs "Everywhere That I Go" and "Just Wanna Say". You may find yourself swaying to the Jamaican-vibe on "Surely Goodness" and you just can't sit still when listening to songs like "U R Loved", "You Found Me", and "Saved By Grace". The uplifting "Better to Believe" is a funky, feel good song that sets out to encourage.
"Moving Forward" is an anthem in its own right and "I Receive" is a simple, yet moving worship song. "Every Prayer" is a soul-stirring composition and songs like "The Power of One (Change the World)" and "Sing Redemption's Song" come straight from the heart. "My Tribute Medley" nicely wraps up the album giving honor to God.
I pray God continues to do great things through Izrael ;-).
Oh, by the way, the bonus track "Others" is a real treat and was worth pre-ordering on iTunes :P.
Wow! A Revolutionary Game Changer of an Album!
Wow! I am not sure that I have ever posted a review of an album in the many years that I have been buying stuff from Amazon.com, but "The Power of One" by Israel Houghton is a GAME-CHANGER!
Listen, the quality of the music on here is unmatched and I think you can get a feel for that for yourself by listening to the samples, but that's not what I want to emphasize!
These songs are REVOLUTIONARY songs for the time that we live in. They are designed to spark a fire inside of people (one by one) so that they can understand that the God inside of them will empower them to CHANGE THE WORLD!
Our church is already using the title track and we will be using it again at a major outreach effort in a week or so because it is really connecting with the hearts of real people! Buy this...you won't be disappointed!
He does it yet again
I am in awe with this cd.It seems each and every cd he comes out with just keeps getting better and better.Israel Houghton is almost unlike any christian artist in the game because not only is the music AMAZING and keeps you on the edge of your seat, but it is so annointed.I promise you will not be disappointed with this album.The song "Moving Forward" is sure to be a proclimation for todays church at whole, also "Just wanna say" is a song we will all be singing."Everywhere that I go" is very catchy and easy to learn to teach your praise band.Also, If your a fan you also need to read his book titled "A deeper level". It will change your mindset of what worship is.
