We gave it an A+

Part black-history class, part Sunday-school lesson, this glorious album from Minneapolis’ celebrated mass choir overflows with modern-day hymns that could uplift even the most hopelessly lost soul. Bass-heavy hip-hop flourishes and smoky R&B rhythms ensure , Africa to America: The Journey of the Drum‘s youthquake appeal, while the gospel harmonies and thunderous voices-as pure as the panes of a cathedral’s stained glass-make for a blessed sonic experience. Hallelujah!
