Great gospel voices, funky guitar, bumping R&B beats...
If they were thankful for their blessings on the brilliant 'Shackles (Praise You)', they're even more thankful on 'I Sings', its slinky follow-up. And over the 14 tracks of their debut album 'Thankful'? Well, yes, they're pretty thankful there as well.
And why not? There's a lot to like about 'I Sings': two great gospel voices and an undeniably uplifting vibe, a funky guitar line and some bumping R&B beats (which I'd like to think were an act of God, but should probably be credited to sometime Dru Hill producer Warryn Campbell). It might not be in the same league as the sublime 'Shackles', but it's pretty good all the same.
Feel free to insert your own joke about faint praise here. Thanks.
