15 years after their last album together and after both of them pursued successful solo careers, the brother/sister duo have reunited with a new set of songs which sees them demonstrating that they're still a class act. Vocally the harmonies and intertwining of their voices is as gorgeous as ever and as you can imagine, the production across the whole album sounds at turns lush and funky! This might not be the poptastic sound of the hey day but for gospel fans, 'Still' delivers everything they could want from a BeBe and CeCe album. Standouts include the ballad "I Found Love" and the funky, inevitably danceable "Reason To Dance". Their old production partner Keith Thomas shows up on the excellent "Close To You" and "Grace". Older brother Marvin guests on "Things" and the British group Nu Colours add their talents. Overall, it's definitely a "welcome back" to the duo who sound stronger than ever.
