Integrity Music is making Noel Robinson’s Outrageous Love (Live) available here in the United States, which means I was blessed to check out a preview copy. It’s been available in the UK for a few months, but it releases here on Friday, January 22. And this high-energy album is one you don’t want to miss.
Right from the intro of the first song, the stellar horns announce that this is not the kind of album you’ll want to sit and listen to passively. You’ll want to worship and maybe even dance a bit. The other thing I noticed immediately is that for a live album, the mix is very well balanced and the band is really, really tight. The music is put together so well that I didn’t even notice that the first track is over six minutes long!
In fact, the whole album passes quickly. So much so that you wouldn’t guess it’s over 90 minutes long (at least in the Deluxe incarnation). From the passionate, heartfelt “Rain,” to the island-influenced sound of “Let The People Say,” this album is enjoyable and engaging from start to finish.
