Remember where you read it last! This album is a year old and has had four or so hit singles lifted from it - but it is time to pay our respects to Britain's most popular female group. Eternal are four Christians from South London and sing top quality R&B songs mainly touching on relationships and love. The lyrics and image they portray are a credit to them - no seminaked publicity photographs or videos for example. It's good to see their faith comes through strong in every interview I have read with them, unlike most R&B artists who profess to be Christians. The team thank God on the sleeve notes of the album. 'Always And Forever' also contains a little gospel. There is the BeBe Winans' produced "Crazy" (originally sung by Margaret Bell) which is one of the best tracks on the album, mainly because it is less poppy and sounds more R&B, and of course there is that message which you can't ignore while the album closes with an attractive acappella version of "Amazing Grace". A creditable and positive album.
