How much record company skulduggery is involved with differing versions of albums: remixes, bonus editions? Giving the listener more choice, yeah I suppose that's one way of looking at it. Here we have the plain Jane 13-track basic album, that's a lot of tracks, so I really ought not complain (although one is just a kind of talking intro). Kiki continues her push towards becoming one of the main players in the gospel arena, with a good-looking set of songs. They never quite reach the peak but never sink below the halfway point either. My guess is that "Yes" is the radio-friendly track, weighing in at just under three minutes with a complete set of in-yer-face frequencies, it's an arresting cut. If the man from Delmonte had an urban radio station then I'm sure he would say yes to "Yes". I've heard that the children of famous musicians say that having acclaimed parents is a hindrance rather than a help to their own musical pursuits; if that's true then the Clark Sisters' protégé has all the more talent for breaking through the barrier. Possibly not quite as impactful as her stunning debut but still slickly produced R&B gospel.
