Top tracks: "Something Bigger" "Blinded" "Slow Walk"

Grammy winning act Mary Mary hits it big here, as sisters Erica and Tina deliver an album with infectious beats, sweet harmonies, and creative arrangements. Second track "Something Bigger" really opens up this album with an exciting march-like drum beat and hooky Timbaland-esque male vocal. That follows right into equally danceable "Blind," and the album doesn't lack a softer side. An embellished version of the traditional hymn "It Is Well (With My Soul)" displays the hopeful lyrics that define this album's message: "I've had more than my share of pain / Still I believe all things will work out for my good."
