Kingdom Come's soundtrack is refreshingly low-key, with notable contributions from the films originator, Kirk Franklin, and Jill Scott, in addition to a host of lesser known but no less talented acts.Shawn Stockman's "Stand" is particularly poignant; like all the best gospel, it could easily double as a pop song. Snappy beats and modern R&B production techniques abound--there's only one traditional sounding gospel number here, the swaying "God's Got it All in Control," with time-honored piano and hushed organ accompaniment building to a climactic finish. KINGDOM COME is a great stand-alone collection--about the biggest compliment you can pay to a soundtrack album.
