Eternal, another entry in the growing ranks of female quartets, don't just blur the line between modern urban music and contemporary gospel; they almost obliterate it on this debut session, whose corps of producers and writers includes Bebe Winans. Rather than dividing or obscuring the lyrical focus and having listeners wondering who the object of their love is from song to song, Eternal simply splits the menu between praise/religious cuts and straight, sizzling love tunes. They move from a blistering remake of "Let's Stay Together" or "Sweet Funky Thing" to the equally vigorous "Amazing Grace" or "Just A Step From Heaven." These women have great voices, but there's something a bit unsettling about the move from the bedroom to the altar on the same session.
