  1. I’m surprised and glad you included the Hayes’ One Purpose–best of their career IMO. Although the Nelons are a personal favorite, I consider Triumphant their worst recording ever.
    This is off topic, but I’m surprised no one has mentioned Justin Rivers’ appearance on The Voice. And I don’t recall anyone noticing Brian Alvey is no longer with the Talleys due to his other career per their enewsletter.
