Christian R&B can go burn in a pile of the $5 CD tub they all inevitably end up in.

their vocal style of singing over each other is pleasant enough for a track here and there but for a full length album, it just never works for me. The opener and closer are pretty cute though

This album on the other hand was infinitely more personal and though I can understand how you could find the songs and or vocals boring or uninspired that just isn't how it feels for me and some slow pop is exactly what I ... read more
