Hero is the latest Gospel CD put out by the very talented Kirk Franklin who once again has delivered a brilliant collection of tracks. IÂm confident Kirk Franklin fans, and Gospel fans alike will be pleased with this one.
This CD will grab your attention right from the outset with Lookin’ For You and wonÂt let go until the very last note of the very last song Sunshine, which is another great track by the way.
These days itÂs a very rare CD on which every single song is good or better than the one before it. This CD is certainly one of those rare CDs.
IÂm of the opinion that Hero is certainly Kirk FranklinÂs best work in a few years. A totally enjoyable CD and an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up because itÂs a collection that even the casual Gospel fan can appreciate and enjoy.
While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tracks are Let It Go [track 5], The Process [track 6], and Keep Your Head [track 13].
My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 7, Imagine Me. Great track!
