Holy hip hop influenced R&B gospel and plenty of jams to keep the urban crowds happy. The strengths are a nicely relaxed soulful vocalist and plenty of edge in the programming, though there are a few production flaws to stop this reaching the dizzying heights of the Winans Phase 2 or whatever )eg. The seriously cheesy string synth on 'A Time To Dance' or one or two obvious clich├ęs in the lyric writing). But "Prayer Groove" and "Anotha Chance" overcome the stereotypes and could well catch airplay. And I rather enjoyed the retro New Jack Swingbeat "The Potter". But despite its good points in the increasingly crowded field of R&B gospel this uneven offering is nearer Marks & could well catch airplay.
