My family decided to do as they were told this Christmas and got me Joy with Oslo Gospel Choir. I absolutely love it!
It is called "Joy" and rightly so – it puts me in a good mood! The cd has a good mixture of gospel, rap, ballads, etc. They have re-newed their sound without losing their characteristics. There are some new rythms that just groove. The music complements the texts, which are Christian without falling too much into worship. "Love is a wonderfule thing" is a beautiful ballad about love, not the icky sticky Hollywood love, but real love.
"A human right" has got lead-singers from Germany, the Netherlands and Norway. It is quite cool that they have several nationalities in a song with such a title!
I can absolutely recommend this cd! Not just because I am an OGC fan, but because it is genuinly a good cd that can cheer me up whenever!
