After strong sales of this female threesome's first two albums, the group—Chanelle Harris, Angel Taylor, and Adrian Anderson—delivers what should easily be its major breakthrough project. Touches of R&B, hip-hop, rock, and pop are added to the trio's bedrock urban/inspirational sound on solid, diverse material and brought home with power and panache by an all-star production team that includes Fred Jerkins (Mary J. Blige, Destiny's Child, Brandy), Shep Crawford (Yolanda Adams, Boyz II Men), and Travon Potts (Christina Aguilera, BeBe Winans). Among a long list of standout tracks are a soulful remake of Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready," the smooth "16 Again," and "Holla," a pumping, irresistible dance track. Sure-footed and totally self-realized every step of the way, Trin-i-tee 5:7 has fully arrived.—GE
