Review Danny Gokey’s new album, RISE

Now that Danny’s #1 CAC album has been out for a couple of weeks, with multiple listens by avid fans like YOU, we want to hear your thoughts on your favorite song(s).  We’re sharing reviews from 5 sources to get your reaction!

Song Reviews:

#1:  “Stronger Than We Think” throws back musically to 1980s dance club music, as Danny uses vocal echoes and electronic keyboards to present a different and powerful way to begin Rise. Using unique moments of rhyme, Danny encourages us that we are indeed stronger than we believe we are at a certain moment- that when the devil tries to discourage us, all we need to do is to look within, knowing that if we are made in His image, and with His spirit within us, we can and will do much more than He ever did when He was on earth all those years ago!  — 365 Days of Inspiring Media 

 

#2: “If You Ain’t In It” is a prevalently catchy pop song that advances boldly and unashamedly. Electronic synths form the foundation while brass horns, drums, and some guitar build the melody from there. Background voices, masked as if from a radio, accompany Danny’s signature vocals as he leads the lyrics. The song conveys a simple yet important message – that even a perfect life with everything going right is not worthwhile if God “ain’t in it.” Considering Danny’s story, the song packs a lot of power behind the pop sounds and definitely stands out in the album.  – The Christian Beat
