Overrated?? – 11th Hour

11th HourToday continues a new series titled overrated.  It looks at a current artist’s popularity (rated out of 100) vs current chart success/album releases (rated out of 100).  The difference between their popularity score and chart success/album release score is where they fall on the overrated meter.

I am going to flip the script today and actually look at the opposite.  An artist who would be considered underrated.  The artist covered today is 11th Hour.

CURRENT POPULARITY = 78

  • 11th Hour already has an up hill battle in gaining a larger listening audience by being a mixed vocal trio instead of an all male trio/group.
  • With a reputable record label behind them and the access to huge chart hits, its allowing the group to win over new listeners.
  • In an industry where a sea of artists is refurbishing 80s/90s CCM as today’s Southern Gospel, there is no doubt that 11th Hour is releasing Southern Gospel music.

CURRENT CHART SUCCESS/ALBUM RELEASES = 90

  • In pondering the music 11th Hour is currently giving listeners, I score that 90 out of 100.
  • 11th Hour currently has (5) #1 hits under their belt during their short recording career.
  • I named What A Moment the #1 album released in Southern Gospel in 2016.
  • With only four albums in their discography, 11th Hour has a long career ahead to become on of Southern Gospel’s greatest trios.

SCORE ON THE OVERRATED METER = (-12)

  • This score represents that 11th Hour is currently underrated by a net negative (-12).

  1. It’s also surprising that a non-family mixed group has made it. I can’t think of a mixed group who at it’s core, wasn’t a family group managed to emerge into prominence.
    I think they’re great but prefer the original line up of the group with 3 equally strong voices on Steppin’ Out and Gather Round.

  2. Some may not agree with me, but I saw them live and was not that impressed. I think during the time of their chart success, other songs deserved to be #1 over theirs. I would hardly call ‘Jesus In The House’ as southern gospel song even in todays change of music format. JMHO.

    1. Jeff…I completely agree. To call this group UNDERRATED is a stretch in my mind. I guess that’s why different folks like different stuff. But me…NOT a fan of 11th Hour.
