Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine Although he was the frontman for Living Colour, Corey Glover was in many ways the least essential member of the group, since the band was primarily about instrumental interaction. Consequentially, his solo debut could have provided on opportunity to develop his musical identity, but he decides to pick up where Living Colour left off, turning out a set of hard rock that merges Van Halen with Rush. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but Hymns sounds curiously out of date in the late '90s. There are a few flourishes that push the album toward active rock territory - namely, grinding post-grunge/alt-metal guitars - but for the most part, the songs are stuck in '80s metal. While only a few of the songs are memorable, the music is performed well, and Glover sounds good. It just sounds a little bit like an anachronism in the '90s, which doesn't necessarily make it a promising solo debut.
