God's really got a hold on the soul legendfloating over the digitized grooves of producer Michael Stokes, Smokey Robinson's unmistakable alto sounds as angelic as ever on this, his first religious album. He teases out "Let Your Light Shine on Me" as if it were one of his trademark romantic ballads, and he dollies back from "problems with my woman" to counsel with his god in "I Have Prayed on It." Elsewhere, Food for the Spirit is dragged down by by-the-Book expressions of belief and heavy-handed social commentary, but Robinson hasn't sounded this into it since his heyday, and that in itself is reason to rejoice.
