While the uninformed have described V3 as "A Christian Destiny's Child," that moniker does neither the Vinson sisters (LaToya, Sacha and Shelley) nor their auspicious debut album justice.  Working with a handful of producers, including up-and-comer Antonio Neal, V3's self-titled EMI Records debut comes off as an extremely infectious, melodic disc, with both solid dance numbers and beautifully performed ballads.  The album starts with the irresistible, beat-heavy "Let Go" and matches it with the bouncy  "Take Me There," but it is a series of wonderful ballads that set it apart, including the disc's first single, "I Need You," "Thank You" and the gorgeous "Love Makes the World Beautiful."  Fact is, there's not a bad cut on the disc, and both Gospel and Soul music fans should find a lot to like with V3.  Congratulations to EMI Gospel for bringing out this talented trio and congratulations to V3 for releasing

Highly recommended.
