Picks and Pans Review: Incredible

Mary Mary (Columbia)

With their 2000 hit "Shackles (Praise You)," Mary Mary broke the chains that once discouraged gospel artists from getting busy on the dance floor. On their second album, sisters Erica and Tina Campbell continue to spread their Christian message to the clubs with songs that will put the spirit in your feet. With funky hip-hop beats and lush harmonies worthy of Destiny's Child, Mary Mary's R&B sound is so contemporary that, on the title track, the casual listener might think that they're referring to a mere mortal when they sing about how "incredible" His love is. Mostly produced by Erica's husband, Warryn Campbell, who also worked on Brandy's latest, this is music that is cause for rejoicing even if you never set foot in church.

Bottom Line: Hail, Mary Mary
