This is the debut album from the LA-based family band. "This Is The Day" is perhaps the strongest song on this 12 track CD kicking off with a long instrumental intro before slowly evolving into a contemporary reworking of the old classic of the same name. "Heaven" isn't the BeBe and CeCe oldie but demonstrates this album's eclectic style dipping into R&B, pop and rock with the track bringing in a heavy guitar riff. This group consists of mum, dad and their five musical children with each member of the family having their part to play on "You Can Do Anything". This track is motivating and sung by the lead singers mum, Kim and daughter, Mya. For a taste of high-energy funk you will find this in "Get Ready" with its infectious beats and powerful vocals. While there is more rock flavourings on "Jubilee". Overall, with some attention-grabbing songs an excellent production Forever Jones seem destined to stay around for the long haul.

Not unlike past examples where an artist comes along like an Andrae Crouch or the Winans that totally change the game, “forever JONES” is poised to make their musical mark. Get Ready.
