Must Buy Or Not: Poet Voices – Extraordinary

by David Bruce Murray | January 27, 2018 2:00 PM

Poet Voices recently returned to a quartet format with the addition of bass singer Brandon Barry. Their self-produced CD Extraordinary includes a mixture of new songs as well as a few the group has recorded over the past 15 years or so as a trio. They’ve also re-cut “Pourin’ Rain,” which was originally recorded by Mitchell Jon.

David Bruce Murray and Kyle Boreing are about to find out. Read on for their overall star ratings, highlights, dislikes, and final decisions on whether Extraordinary qualifies as a Must Buy!

Must Buy

David Bruce Murray: No. I’d buy “Extraordinary,” “Hold On A Little Longer” and “Victory Belongs To Jesus” for sure as singles, but I can’t see myself listening to the entire CD often enough to justify buying the whole thing.

Kyle Boreing: No. Like DBM, I’d purchase a few songs ala carte, but there’s not enough solid material here for me to recommend purchasing it. I am going to add an addendum, however, that I would add most of the album to my gospel music streaming playlist.
