After extremely strong albums in 2006 and 2008, the trio from Chicago return with another skilfully crafted set of R&B gospel tracks. The beautiful ballad "Still Here" is a breathtaking track and the vocal arrangement demonstrates the powerful and angelic voices of these young men. Evin, Torrence and Jor'el display how they have matured significantly since their last project. "Still Here" is another standout track with lyrics that speak of our ability to survive because of Christ's blood. "Loving You" is a love song especially written for weddings. The energetic style of "Winner" is a foot taping success and with its R&B groove and positive message it's destined to be a favourite with the youth or those who are young at heart. 21:03 are clearly keeping up their high standards.
