After notching a few major-label hits in the late '90s, twin sisters Heather and Jennifer Kinley take matters into their own hands with the self-released "All in the Family." Banjos meld with more contemporary instrumentation on punchy fare like "Climbin' Up Mount Everest," "Crazy Love" and "Ridiculous," all of which would likely be well-received over the airwaves. The sibling harmonies are dang near irresistible, particularly on stunning ballads like "Little Shoulders" or "Holding On for Life." The sisters own a co-write on the endearingly retro "Only a Prayer" and the sweet "My Baby Blue (A Lullaby)." But the record really earns its keep on two exemplary cuts, the wildly passionate ballad "I Will" (with Jennifer on lead vocals) and a boogie reworking of the Everly Brothers' "Price of Love" that injects the collection with some serious sibling energy. Racked in the United States by CBuJ Distribution.—RW
