  1. Jun 28, 2013
    One of the best releases of 2013, so far.
  2. Jun 28, 2013
    It manages to preserve the defiance, drama, faith and heart of the original gospel classics, while making them sound like contemporary music.

    On spirityouall, McFerrin does what he has always done as an artist -- he makes this troubled world shine bright as a diamond.
  4. Jun 28, 2013
    An album that’s simultaneously playful, down-home, innovative and devotional.
  5. There’s a personal context (Mac’s dad was a famous singer of spirituals), the band is great, the vibe folksy.
