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.

Liberia: Spoon Tv Has Been Accused of Being a Government Operative

Spoon TV has risen to prominence as a platform for unfiltered news, political viewpoints, and social concerns. Unfortunately for the television network, the recent visit of their team to Liberia has led to some people questioning their objectives and ethics, which is unfortunate for them. Check out few post on the subject from fans around the world. "This is your Spoon TV Crew in Liberia hobnobbing with the CDC Government. My issue is not that they are meeting the Government. I believe in constructive engagement and the Government represent all Liberians. My issue is, this is the same Spoon TV that faults everybody of being in cohort with the government once they hear gossip about you being friends with the CDC folks. This same Spoon TV was disrespectfully calling out my name on their wretched show to come and appear because Jerome Verdier accused me of meeting with Jefferson Koigee and George Weah, as if it is a crime or sin to engage the CDC government or even know or talk
