Reviewed by Paul Poulton

There are seven of them but only four sing, the remaining three play keyboards, drums and bass; some session guys play guitar, etc. The 7 use space to great effect, yet the sound has a girth the size of Fatty Arbuckle, having real depth of field. Hi-fi vocals that are so close to me it's like they are in the room with me, their notes are surrounded by air and the harmonies built like a Jenga tower in its final stages. These guys are new on the block, although you may have heard of them on WOW Gospel 2004; singer Cliff Jones made his mark as the lead singer on the US hit "Be Encouraged". The majority of the 14 songs recorded are paced slow to medium, excepting "Prayer Changes Things" which is in stomp territory, having a bebop guitar part that propels the track forward in the most infectious fashion. "He's Coming Back" is slow but grooves neatly, with lots of low level parts that will still interest the listener however many times it's heard. There's a seamless vein weaving its way through the entire CD, it's cohesive smooch without the smooching - well that bit's up to you, it's none of my business what you get up to in the privacy of your own home. Fred Hammond makes a guest appearance on "What Is This". The quartet is modern, but not enough to alienate traditional gospel lovers.

Slow grooves, urban enough to interest youth but not enough to alienate traditional gospel lovers.

There is so much to 7 Sons of Soul, an incredible group of young men who deftly merge contemporary and urban sensibilities with the traditional and straightforwardness of the quartet sound. Their music pays tribute to yesterday, is an indication of tomorrow and the combination is perfect for today.
