Al Green: He Is The Light (A&M)
J.D. Considine, Musician, January 1986
AL GREEN'S gospel recordings never really turned on his pop following, in part due to their uneven quality, but also because hosannas, no matter how heartfelt, do not make for the kind of party music 'Here I Am (Come And Take Me)' or 'Sha La La (Make Me Happy)' provided. In that regard, He Is The Light is a troublesome triumph.
