The guys' last big selling album was a little too American boy band for everyone's taste but this new set turns up the R&B grooves and does it make an impact! The brothers have been busy. With a pick 'n' mix selection of producers again, this time they have a hand in co-producing every track as well as writing or co-writing two thirds of the album. It has the lot. Crisp, crystal clear production, strings and smooth harmonies to equal the biggest boy band on the beautiful "Thank You" and "Who Do You Love?" as well as the crescendo building "You Are". There's the soulful "Sold Out Believer" and "Believe". The overall album is funkier and punchy with the intro track of "It's Real" and "Ain't No Love". The track that stands out the most being the more vocally adventurous and edgier is "Dance" with its Prince, Tonex vibes, where the boys let themselves go the most. Tracks are reflective and certainly more challenging about making the choice of truly going for God with a call for us to stand up and fulfil the mission we've been called to in Christ. Don't miss it!
