Kirk Franklin is on a one-man mission to bring gospel music into the nineties. His own recordings have given the genre a fresh new face, and here he plays shepherd to a soulful group of singers who are bound to bring the Lord's word straight into the twenty-first century. God's Property is a modern gospel choir consisting of dozens of talented vocalists, and under Franklin's tutelage they have marked a bold new direction for gospel.
There's a little bit of everything here, from the hip-hop beat of "Stomp" to the James Brown-style funk groove of "It's Rainin'" and the smooth R&B sound of cuts like "Love" and "Sweet Spirit." Through all of these stylistic contortions, God's Property lays down strong, sweet harmonies and infuses every track with a heartfelt, spiritual message.
