I acquired this CD entirely by accident - I bought the Gaither bluegrass gospel DVDs and this CD came packaged with them. I have never been a big fan of Gaithers; so many of their songs seem trite and sappy when you look at them on paper. I was not real thrilled at first with the non-bluegrass CDs they included, but decided to give them a whirl in the player anyway.
I was floored. From the very first notes of this CD, you are completely drawn into the music. What appears trite on paper is absolutely breath-taking when you hear it done by committed Christian singers like them. I now start to understand why so many people are fans of the Gaithers.
I thought that, contrary to the reviewer who was disappointed in David Phelps' appearances, Phelps did figure prominently in songs like "Alpha and Omega." I especially liked Russ Taft's singing in "Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road." Of course, seeing the Australian Homecoming video (which uses primarily the songs from Everything Good) helps since Russ explains how the song mirrors his own life. And, of course, the a capella "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go" is absolutely spine-tingling. It makes you want more a capella singing from the band.
Is the CD perfect? Of course not. I do agree with the reviewer who mentioned the mixing problems, especially the bass guitar. As a bass player myself, I didn't like the bass line choices made in some songs; especially over-using the low string of his five-string bass. And I agree that in "O Love," when Bill sings the solo line it doesn't even sound like him - it almost sounds like he was put through a flanger. :-)
But, please don't let these small problems dissuade you from buying this excellent CD. I'm not familiar enough with Gaither CDs to say whether this is one of their best or one of their more ordinary ones; but I can say if this is one of their ordinary productions, I can't even imagine what their excellent ones would be like!

I have only been listening to Southern Gospel music for about two years. In that time, I have not left home without this CD. At the age of 46, I went back to school for two years to complete my ambulance education to become a paramedic. The music on this CD got me over some major tough times with school. The song "Not Gonna Worry" became my theme song. Each day, before and after each exam, I would listen to and sing along with this song for the inspiration, knowing that I was not in school for my own purpose. I have e-mailed the words of this song to another EMT who is struggling with paramedic school. She now is using this song as her education theme song.
I do not have a lot of listening education in Southern Gospel music, but this CD ALWAYS makes me sing and raise my hands to God with an excitement for life. Now it is my theme song in my career. Each time I get an ambulance call, I hum/think about this song, because again, I need the inspiration to do a God-inspired work for my patients. Thank you, GVB, for being part of my education and career.

The Gaither Vocal Band continues to be (arguably) the best men's gospel quartet recording today. This recording is the first since Russ Taff replaced Mark Lowry as the group's baritone.
The theme of this recording seems to be our faithful response to the faithfulness of God. Several songs talk about heaven - the final demonstration of God's faithfulness (Alpha and Omega, Knowing You'll Be There, When He Talked About His Home). Another group of songs discuss how God comes through, redeeming us when we are at our end (Heartbreak Ridge, When The Rains Come, He Came Through). While the last CD released before this one (I Do Believe) dealt with trusting God in the midst of the hard times, this offering seems to be more settled and resolved, on the other side of the struggle of faith. The message is clear and encouraging. However, I must say that this recording is not one of the groups best.
There are no really bad songs on the recording, but there are few that are really great, either in terms of the power of the message or the musical content. In fact, on the scale of bad to great, I'd give most everything on the recording a rating of "good". The exceptions are two songs that are (in my opinion) great. The first (O Love That Will Not Let Me Go) demonstrates the beauty of four-part accapella harmony on a rich, classic hymn. The second (He Came Through) gives new baritone Russ Taff a chance to show what his ability to interpret soulful songs will add to the group.
My advice is this: For those who are new to the GVB, this should not be your first purchase. Try "God is Good" or "I Do Believe" for a recent recording that is superb. However, if you have most everything the GVB has put out recently, don't hesitate to buy this one. You will find a lot of good songs, and a theme of being faithful to a faithful God.

Gaither's "I DO BELIEVE" has to be the perfect example of what Gaither singing is all about. Not only does it contain magnificent singing, original song selection, and excellent instrumentation, but also fine Mastering and Mixing work in the studio. As a studio masterer/mixer for 21 years, I can dissect music carefully from this point of view. Having said that, this current offering from GVB falls considerably short. I feel Russ Taff has a fine, soulful voice that lends well for solo parts (such as the opening of "I pledge My Allegiance"). However, I am still evaluating how he fits in the mix of harmonies.
The bass guitar in some of these songs is mixed/mastered at much too high volume levels. Also, the volume (loudness) of the music in some of these songs is excessively high in comparison to the vocals. This disrupts from the singing and makes you wonder whether this should have been an instrumental album. This is most apparent on "I Pledge my Allegiance" (especially during and after David Phelps verse), "Forgive Me", and "It is Finished."
Another mastering/mixing miscue is that the microphone levels for the singers are not consistent (for example, in "I pledge my Allegiance," when David Phelps begins his solo, its almost as if he's talking on a phone connection. There is no presence or thickness and the voice sounds like background singing (both in volume and layering). If you try to increase the bass on your radio, the bass guitar becomes even more prominent than it already is, further disrupting from the mix. If you listen to their album "I BELIEVE", you will see what a difference good mixing/mastering accomplishes.
