From the funky opener "Different Now" with one of those Fairlight brass riffs which made Stevie Wonder's '70s classics so compelling, to the closing "Reprise" to the slinkily soulful "I Am The One" this is everything we'd hoped for from the Kimmey Sisters. Fans of Destiny's Child or Alicia Keys will appreciate the ladies' fresh approach to contemporary R&B while the strength of the group, those delicious, delicate and intoxicating harmonies, are still in clear evidence. Lisa Kimmey wrote or co-wrote every song while there's a plethora of top-of-the-tree production talent on show here, including Donnie Scantz (Aalijah), Nate and Mike Clemons (Mary J Blige), Lee Jerkins (Cross Movement) and Todd Collins (dc Talk). Even executive producer Toby McKeehan appears as "guest emcee" on the engaging "Day Like Today". There are funky sounds like "Paradise" and "Showpiece" while "All You Need" with delicious multi-layered harmonies and "Rolling Stone" with deft acoustic guitar are delightful. Spirituall uplifting music from a class act.

I have always loved this CD, although I haven't been able to find any of your other CD's anywhere which is dissapointing to me cuz this CD's is awesome. I actually got this CD from a friend back in 2003 and I listened to it until it was wore out and had to start making copies is there anyway that you can get in touch with me so that I can somehow get your other CD's (older and newer), I would appreciate it... Thank you for allowing God to work in your lives...
