Album Rank for Group: #1 of 10
Here’s a blurb: My favorite album of 2011 kept climbing up this list the more I listened to it. The Kingdom Heirs did nothing groundbreaking here, besides hiring one of the best tenors in gospel music. I don’t know if any of the songs will go on to be all-time greats (although the title track could be one of the quartet’s signature songs). Maybe a lot of the songs sound similar. I happen to really like songs that sound that way, though. The point is this: from top to bottom, I enjoy listening to this Kingdom Heirs album more than any others. When you take a great-sounding quartet and combine it with lots and lots of Dianne Wilkinson, it’s going to be hard to miss with me, and they didn’t.
Knock my socks off: Heaven Is My Goal, We Will Stand Our Ground, I’m Gonna Hit the Ground Running
Don’t skip that one: Where’s John, It’s Real, When Heaven’s Gates Swing Open Wide, Just Preach Jesus, I’m a Brand New Man, I’m Not Worried About Forever
I could honestly do without: If You Give the Devil an Inch
