Southern gospel modern style. This still has an occasional country tinge, but with modern arrangements and slick production this 2003 album wouldn't sound out of place on inspirational and pop stations. Three quality voices, Amber Franks, Michael Lord and Kim Ruppe Lord, both the girls have been singing and recording since childhood and when the threesome harmonise the sound is decidedly pleasant on the ear. The ballad title track sounds like a hit while their surprisingly good rendition of Anointed's R&B gospel song "The Call" demonstrates Lord Song's versatility. Classy ballads, impeccably performed, dominate this impressive album.
