Inside The Groove

A true awesome spiritual songs by a gifted singer.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

It may be called a “concept album” as all tunes are “spiritual” songs to praise God. Most songs are sung in a slow tempo, and the backing arrangement (including gospel-choirs) of each song is in a solemn tone. His singing is nothing but beautiful and spiritual.

I feel this album is absolutely awesome and fascinating, even though I am not a Christian. Great.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
