The one thing about gospel albums (apart from most of the times recorded live) is that monotony. One can just hum the next line before you hear it and you are sure on point. When I got Vashawn Mitchell’s latest work I wasn’t expecting anything less but I got something more. . . much more
On his new album, Mr Mitchell combines catchy beats with deep lyrics. The first track ‘Conqueror’ would have you jump to your feet proclaiming what God has done for you. ‘Nobody Greater’ is a mellow worship tune with beautiful instrumentation and vocals. The whole work is covered with very powerful vocals (as it is with gospel albums). The tune of ‘I Need You’ is hip! A beautiful song of worship and praise to God. Other highlights of the album are ‘Can’t Take My Joy Away’ and ‘Chasing After You’. The album closer is a song of encouragement called ‘Now Be Restored’.
All in all Vashawn’s latest work isn’t your regular gospel album and is worth getting. Lovers of contemporary gospel artiste such as Kevin Levar, Israel Houghton, Dewayne Woods and Darwin Hobbs are sure to have a triumphant Joy ride!
