Album Review: Moses Swaray – “GOD ALONE”

Moses Swaray/ God Alone
Artiste – Moses Swaray
Album – GOD ALONE
Producers – Just Prince
Running Time – 45 minutes
On April 24, 2016, Moses Swaray launched his album 'God Alone.' This review is a honest assessment of the album.  Digest an non biased review based on a track-by-track analysis.
I Surrender
This song starts of slowly, as an old baptist hymn. The chorus has background singers, with Moses leading.  This is not one of the best songs on the track, there is nothing unique about it, just an old baptist hymn sang with a great voice. It is a great song, a song that never gets old. That's way to go when you want to play it safe.
Most High
Most High is a personal favorite. It has a Blues vibe, which I fell in love with.  It is very relaxing and soothing.  This song is a worship song, acknowledging God's position.  This is one of the songs you will listen to from being to end.
He's Able
The electric guitar at the beginning is definitely electrifying.  The whole song is electrifying.  This is the first fast song on the album. It is an African American spiritual.  Not my personal style of gospel music.  It was my least favorite, but the message is inspirational.  
God Alone
The Album is named after this song.  Great choice.  The beat is very simple, the vocal is clear and the song is not noises at all.  The song talks about him depending on God alone. Dope song!
My Eyes Have Seen
This song proclaims the goodness of God.  This is another negro spiritaul song.  The second one on the album.  With lines like "my eyes have seen, my ears have heard, my mouth will talk about the goodness of God," the message was well passed.
 Unchangeable
A slow dance worship song.  The song talks about an unchanging God. It's simple as that.
Keep on Trying
This song has a slow and slight reggae vibe.   A simple beautiful song with a powerful message
Overflow
What can I say, the fans of Moses Swaray have already accepted this one.  This is one of my favorite on the album.  It is the only song with an African beat. Even though the song has a little bit of Bassa, the rhythm is South African.  Dope track.  Beautiful song.

Moses Swaray is a great artist with remarkable talent, but I will have to give this album a B+.  The album lack diversity.  The whole album was a mixture of negro spiritual and Blues, with one African song and it was the best song out of 8 great songs.  For an African  artist, his roots didn't shine through.
Note: Moses Swaray is one of my favorite Liberian gospel artist.

Open Letter to President George Weah

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,

To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
