Personal Review:
 I think it might be safe to say that Big Lew is the big on the far left.

 The album opens with the track “The Eastern Gate” – and well, it’s all very vocal… the piano playing is a bit too upbeat, but the vocal dynamic of the quartet is pretty nice. It’s decent. Next up comes “Just a Rose Will Do” and it starts off a bit slow, but the vocals are decently done, and this guy singing can really hit some high notes, it’s crazy. After that we continue onto the track “Sheltered in the Arms of God” which is a traditional gospel track that a lot of people have done, but it’s a good one. Decently done. Next comes the song “That’s Just His Way” and the vocalist on this track is really good, I really like this guys voice. This song is a good one, not too slow, not too fast. It’s performed well, and I like it. The A-Side closes with a very slow version of “How Great Thou Art” – which is typically a really good Gospel track, this one is a bit too slow for my liking, but the chorus on this one is pretty good. I do like the final group high note.

The B-Side opens with “Look Up” and this one is upbeat, peppy and filled with different vocal points by all the group, and whoever the baritone vocalist is, he is fantastic. He’s absolutely the best. The baritone parts really make this track. “The Home-Coming Week” comes next, and this vocalist on this one has a pretty distinct voice, and I quite like their voice. This one is pretty great. I got to admit, this song together with the piano playing and the vocals, comes out to be my favorite track on this album, it’s great. “He Touched Me” comes next, and it’s another group track, and well, it’s a good one just for the fact of what song it is, it’s a gospel classic and it’s a very hard one to mess up, so it’s a good track again. “The Lighthouse” comes next, and once again the vocals are pretty great, so I’m liking it. There is even a spoken word part in this track, and it really makes it. This has been a pretty great album so far. There was even some baritone vocals. The album closes with the track “No Disappointments in Heaven” which has baritone vocals on it again! I’m digging these baritone vocals on this album, whoever the baritone vocalist is, he’s pretty great. Overall, it’s a good album. ”
