There's definitely something in the air! First we have Mary Mary's "Shackles" crash-landing overt Christianity to the masses with gospel R&B, now Natalie Wilson and her substantial team warp-factor more of the same from across the pond. Believe you me, transatlantic flights can rarely have as smooth a passage as this sublime collection - breathtaking collective vocals, soaring talent, which includes a star guest appearance from Faith Evans of Puff Daddy fame, and the stratospheric production of Joe 'Flip' Wilson. Strong, innovative melodies, executive class songs - hard to detect any cracks here, with The Hills" standing out construction-wise, but it's a close call in such a rarefied atmosphere. There's only one course of action when you're at this altitude - take a sharp intake of breath.
