Reviewed by Geoff Howlett

This release is a collection of songs from his three previous albums, plus three brand new songs thrown in for good measure. Out of those new songs "Whatcha Here 4?" is probably the best, in a sort of gospel-meets-hip hop kind of way. The opening, "Just For Who You Are", threw me a little as it does sound like a female voice taking the lead. Whoever he/she is, they have a real quality vocal, although not quite as seasoned as, say, Shirley Caeser. The whole album is very much in the modern gospel sound, although "It's All About The Love Of Jesus" does sound like an old fashioned number that's had an uptempo beat put to it. "I Really Want To See You Now" is a laid back song that has some really sweet harmonies, while "When I Think About You" comes across stronlgy, especially with its opening brass section. If I was to stick my neck out here, I would say that this track would do well if released in the UK as a single - it's that strong. Lamar Campbell gets a little carried away towards the end of the track listing with some obligatory hollering but, on the whole, he's impressed me. Check it out.
