OF THE HEART, OF THE SOUL AND OF THE CROSS is a particularly imaginative, literate take on hip-hop. With lush instrumental backing and a vulnerable lyrical stance, PM Dawn pushes at the genre's perimeters, injecting the form with sentimentality and gentleness. The album produced one huge chart success--the loftily titled "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss" makes generous use of Spandau Ballet's none-too-macho '80s classic "True" as the backbone for a weary tale of love gone wrong. The interweaving lines and philosophical wordplay of "Even After I Die" help to propel OF THE HEART into the realm of pure poetry, and assure its unique place in hip-hop history.
Ranked #18 in Melody Maker's list of the top 30 albums of 1991.
Melody Maker (12/01/1991)
While Prince and others groped for a merger of pop melody, rap grit and spiritual aspirations, P.M. Dawn found it, on an album that effortlessly moves between the earthy and the light-headed.
New York Times (01/01/1992)
Highly Recommended - ...an eye-popping, jaw-dropping, from- God's-mouth-to-your-ear debut....knockout vocal arrangements...
...Far from abandoning rap, P.M. Dawn help to take it in new directions....Light on percussion and heavy on melodic, visionary lyrics... - Rating: A
Entertainment Weekly (11/15/1991)
4 Stars (out of 5) - ...this strangely serene debut album...widened rap's horizons. Where gangsta-isms were very much the order of the day...[P.M. Dawn] made languid, Daisy Age-inspired pop-rap tunes that had little or nothing to do with the 'hood, but everything to do with Utopia....Out of sync, definitely, but a beautiful record...
