Seldom has a singer covered such a wide range of musical styles as Crystal Lewis with sassy R&B, snappy pop and the soully inspirational ballad all part of her armoury. So we shouldn't have been too surprised that "More", the first of the four new recordings featured here, should have lashings of rock guitar. Pretty good it is too. Elsewhere, the 12 tracks offer many of her greatest hits including the incomparable "People Get Ready.Jesus Is Comin'" and that tongue-in-cheek discofication of "Shine Jesus Shine". Throughout, Crystal swoops and soars with theatrical aplomb. If you've yet to discover one of CCM's most popular divas or you're looking for a greatest hits compilation, this is value for money.
