Look out UK! The best in Stateside pop could be on its way! Or rather, on their way. Point Of Grace, the feel-good female foursome from the US sell zillions of their records over the Big Pond. They've got accolades and awards galore, more Christian radio hits than is legal in a lifetime and produce pop that goes off with a bang. This, their third album, has HIT written all over it. Vocally, the gals groove. Musically, it's teenagers' fodder. Production wise, it's slicker than Brilcreme. It's hard not to compare them to their male counterparts, 4Him. But I just have. Oops! Songs? Standout track number one, "Sing A Song", will appeal to all Earth, Wind And Fire fans as it was written by Maurice White. It's been given a funky bass line and Michael Omartian tinkles the ivories like the maestro he is. Pure joy! Song number two to grab you, "That's The Way It's Meant To Be" (again with Michael O) is an upbeat hot toddy to warm the heart. The gals harmonise with panache, give it some real lungpower and don't hold back. This is Christian pop dressed in its finest robes. I imagine it won't be long before British teenagers start checking them out.
