Championed by Soundscape Records this time, Beatfanatic again flexes his fusion of breaks, disco, and Afro-Cuban rhythms. Yet unlike his work on the Raw Fusion label, this project seems uninspired and gets real old, real fast. Tracks like “Boom Bangin‘,” “Let Us Pray,” and “Holdin‘ Out” begin with bland drums-monotonous 10 seconds in, and dreadful by the two-minute mark. Some songs-like “African Love” and “Pete‘s Funk”-are indeed colorful, but don‘t make The Gospel worthwhile. Though this project is being touted as a summer party album, you‘re better off saving your money for the refreshments.
