Something Big continues in this gospel duo’s tradition of delivering a rock-solid Christian message in soulful style, drawing upon contemporary hip-hop and old school R&B elements in equal measure. Sisters Erica and Tina Atkins play to their strengths as they explore what it means to be a Christian in real-world terms without stinting on infectious beats and self-revealing lyrics. The title track opener sets the tone with its full-throated declaration of belief, spurred on by a clap-along groove. The march-driven “Something Bigger” and the dance-floor workout “Blind” keeps the momentum rolling before the duo cool things down for a luminous reworking of the traditional hymn “It Is Well (With My Soul).” Slower jams like “Sitting With Me” (a message of support to young Christians out of step with the world) and “Catch Me” (a humble confession set to a graceful piano line) are as stirring as the uptempo tracks. Aided by producer Warryn Campbell’s sympathetic, high-polish production, Mary Mary turn Something Big into a sustained celebration of God’s boundless love.
