Conclusion

Pro-social Content

One inspirational song after another. Christ-centered gospel tracks identify Jesus as God's Son ("Revolution"), give thanks for His love ("He Loves Me"), express a commitment to following Him ("My Desire"), praise His very name ("Something About the Name of Jesus") and recognize that He's a Friend who hears our prayers ("Riverside"). "Smile Again,""Hold Me Now,""Blessing in the Storm" and "You Are" all comfort people in pain, reminding them to seek shelter in God. With the ebullience of a Spirit-stoked revival meeting, "You've Been Delivered" implores the redeemed, "Stand up on your feet and praise the Lord!" On "Lean on Me," Franklin and friends urge fans to minister to the hungry and homeless.

Summary Advisory

NU Nation delivers 71 solid minutes of adrenalized uplift. Parents need to know that guests R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige and U2's Bono ("Lean on Me") typically produce less edifying fare, but this disc is a winner!
