There's a new girl in town, or like three of them. And together they make up a head-turning trio from B-Rite Music, Trin-i-tee 5:7. These ladies take their name from 1 John 5:7 and march boldly down the trail blazed by talented female artists like Out of Eden, Toni Braxton and Brandy. As such, the self-titled debut album from Trin-i-tee 5:7 is an R&B/hip-hop treat.
The immediate attention-grabber here is the brief a cappella opener, "I Won't Turn Back." Imagine what Take 6 might sound like if they were women, and you've got an idea of what this tune delivers. The funky "You Can Always Call His Name" is also hard to miss. Mixing rap with a silky-smooth R&B melody, this tune quotes Scripture and encourages listeners to call on Jesus for every need. In a tribute to history, Trin-i-tee 5:7 also includes a soulful, blues-style remake of the African-American spiritual "Oh Mary, Don't You Weep." The result is a tribute to the talent of the artists, as their vocal harmonies glide effortlessly over the musically spare background arrangement. Other cuts worth mentioning are the Kirk Franklin-penned ballad, "God's Blessing," and Percy Bady's worshipful "With All My Heart."
If there is a weakness on this album, it's only in the multitude of producers (a talented line-up of eight) who had their fingers in the mix. For now, however, don't hesitate to welcome this new offering from Trin-i-tee 5:7 into your CD library. -- Mike Nappa (c) 1998 CCM Communications, Inc. -- From CCM Magazine -- Subscribe Now!
