After being a long time fan, listener, entrepreneur, and reviewer of all kinds of music, The Oak Ridge Boys comes alive, with a phenomenal collection of "Hymns and gospel favorites, "Rock of Ages" This album is the latest project of their numerous country albums & other awesome projects. If you are into gospel or hymns or just superb music, you owe yourself a trip to your local record store and pick up this album.
After hearing the Oak Ridge Boys on the radio for years they never stop satisfying my taste for just great music. The Oak Ridge Boys return to the scene with their latest album called "Rock of Ages". This totally describes them to a T, in which they truly are, The Rock of Ages. The Oak Ridge Boys putting together a fifteen song collection of hymns and gospel favorites, just hits the nail in the head.
From the beginning of this beautifully produced album. With the song that caught my eyes and ears attention was the song "Sweet Jesus" which is sung with the late Merle Haggard and just adds that sound to the album. Song after song the Oak Ridge Boys knock it out of the park and allow you to hear the sounds of their roots, a gospel/country quartet. The songs on this tremendous album really showcase the bands roots in a fine fashion. All the songs, including a song called"Time Has Made a Change in Me" really reflects pure emotion and brought tears to my eyes.
On this album the "Boys" project their emotional value of gospel and hymns as they were written and intended for. The entire collection has it all. They are down to a quartet and a handful of others on this album, but remain in their prime. This album serves all the songs perfect justice and is a real treasure to own, in my collection. The Oak Ridge Boys, really are "The Rock of Ages" and in my opinion needs to be the best gospel/country album of all time. I want to take the time to thank Mr. Duane Allen for making the effort to connect with me, and I am elated to be part of their tremendous musical career.
