Guide Review - David Phelps - 'Revelation'
If I were to break down Revelation in a song by song format, I'm afraid that I would be redundant. I would repeat the phrases "soaring vocals," "extraordinary strength" and "perfectly blended music" over and over again and I do hate to repeat myself. "Just As I Am," "Revelation," "Arms Wide Open" and "Heart of Hearts" are all over the top. "Virtuoso," "Satisfaction" and "God Will Take Care of You" are close seconds. To tell the truth, the whole CD is what my teenagers would call "off the chain." David Phelps has a voice that just won't quit and every song is filled with such passion that you're caught between awe of his talent and awe of the songs themselves. Listening to Revelation is like listening to a very personal musical conversation between a true believer and God himself.
