Many contemporary gospel releases are sometimes difficult to distinguish from the secular R&B and hip-hop that influenced them musically, but the third album by Israel & New Breed is something entirely different. The press kit for the aptly titled A DEEPER LEVEL claims that Israel & New Breed fasted for 40 days in preparation for the recording of this album, a cleansing ritual meant to purify their music from worldliness. Indeed, A DEEPER LEVEL is a powerfully moving expression of belief delivered with the self-assurance of true believers.
