Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Take 6 - Brothers (1996)
Probably my least favorite Take 6 CD of the 7 I own. Even so, a bad Take 6 album is still better than most other gospel music. By this time in the group's career, I bought each new release hoping they would return to the a cappella gospel sound of their first album. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case here. What a waste.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Peak on Billboard's R&B albums chart: #71
Tracks: There are great covers of Earth Wind & Fire's Sing A Song (secular) and Paul Davis' Do Right (even though the lyrics are scripturally unsound). Of the other tracks, I like You Don't Have To Be Afraid and Delilah. There's no a cappella number, although there's a nice a capella break in the otherwise mediocre Can't Stop Thinking 'Bout You. Other than that, I don't care for any other tracks, mainly because they sound like they could have been recorded by any other R&B vocal group.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
