Editors’ Notes God, Love & Romance first examines the hardships and rewards of modern-day relationships from a Christian perspective, stressing the need for faith and commitment while acknowledging the difficult times couples face. Hammond’s silken vocals and enticing melodies bring to mind the likes of Luther Vandross and Earth, Wind and Fire, with “You Are My Love Come True,” “When I Come Home to You” and “You’re So Beautiful” standing out for their warm soul grooves and love-affirming lyrics. Especially strong is “One More Try,” a plea for romantic renewal surrounded by vintage synthesizers and billowing background vocals. The second part reaffirms Hammond’s command of R&B-rooted praise music with such inspirational tracks as “Amazing Love,” “You Never Turned” and “Love Song to the Lamb.” “Call on Him” enlists J Moss and Israel Houghton to deliver its sanctified message, while a remix of Hammond’s 2004 hit “Celebrate (He Lives)” flexes some rock guitar muscle. God, Love & Romance combines the earthly and the exalted with a masterful touch.
