Reviewed by Lins Honeyman

This compilation from the inspirational music division of RCA Records aims to act as a showcase for the talents of female gospel artists. Whilst this may be a somewhat superfluous task given the fact that women in gospel music have always matched - if not exceeded - their male counterparts in terms of talent and numbers, a range of high quality exponents of the genre are featured including Vickie and CeCe Winans who kick proceedings off in style with the a cappella "Woman To Woman" and the on-theme "Always Sisters" respectively. Powerhouse vocal performances and slick modern gospel production abound with the likes of Yolanda Adams giving it her best Whitney Houston in "Still I Rise" whilst live tracks such as Helen Baylor's heartfelt version of the old chestnut "If It Had Not Been For The Lord On My Side" and a stunning blues number called "Yesterday" by Mary Mary are a cut above. Unfortunately, the compilers' decision to mostly include tracks from previous releases that have been around for over 10 years gives the impression that only lip service has been given to this project and, together with the fact that the majority of the tracks on offer have been written by men, more thought could have been put into promoting the newer self-penned material of said women and to avoid this being a regrettably perfunctory release.
