Virtue's third album bears more than a striking resemblance to Destiny's Child. The album opens with a heart rending acapella introduction reminiscent of early Take That, proving that these girls can sing! The rest of the album is an upbeat funky, slick production. Non-ambiguous lyrics are used, it is clear that this album is in praise of the Creator. A Latin influence can be heard on "Something About The Way", and the lush string arrangements and classical treatment of "Till You Believe" takes you into a more meditative mood. You soon get stomping again with "Uncle Freddie's Remix". I was disappointed with the arrangement of "Great Is Thy Faithfulness". Their exquisite vocals could have given the song the more measured attention it deserves. Nonetheless a hot listen.
