One of the great voices of CCM (and in Britain sadly neglected), Crystal has now been taken under Word's wing so this compilation of US Christian radio station "hits" is a useful retrospective of her years with brave independent Metro One. The problem with Crystal in the past has been the sheer diversity of her stylistic leanings jumping from anthemic MOR ballads to sassy R&B to sanctified dance and back seemingly at will. So punters might want to skip the occasional track in the 14 here not to their taste. My personal faves tend to be her funkier items though it has to be said that Crystal handles a hymn with majestic skill.
