CD Rated: Eighth Day (Headin’ Home)

Artist: Eighth Day
Title: Headin’ Home
4 Stars

Nutshell Analysis: I found Headin’ Home up on a shelf a few days ago and realized I never had reviewed it. This CD is actually a 2006 release, and here I am barely getting it reviewed before the end of 2007…I’m slipping!

Joni Robinson, who sings the lead vocals on most tracks, reminds me of Karen Peck, except she has a lot of breath in her vocal tone. Her diction is 100% Peck. The tracks are very good, and the songs (mostly written by Robert Arthur, Eric Childers, and Monty Lane Allen) are catchy. I really like the 2005 version of “Back To Me” by Triumphant Quartet, but I think I like Eighth Day’s rendition of the song even more. This CD is worth checking out.

Recommended For: Fans of Karen Peck & New River, the Ruppes, and Jeff & Sheri Easter

    This CD can be monotonous if you listen to it often within a short peroid of time. Some lyrics ramble. But overall this is a good recording. The real hilights for me are “Safe In His Loving Arms” and “Rolled Away Stone”.
