AN IMPRESSIVE DEBUT FROM AN IMPRESSIVE GROUP...

"The Katinas are a vocal group signed to Gotee Records, a Christian label that released its first album in 1994, the groundbreaking 'Lovin The Day' by Out of Eden. The best way to describe the sound of the Katinas would be this: imagine Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, and Brian Littrell from the BSB all combined into one voice. Then throw in Jordan Knight (from NKOTB), and then back them up with just about any 'boyband'; that should give you an idea of what the Katinas sound like. After listening to this self-titled debut release, I can assure fans of pop/R&B music that the Katinas are indeed, "all that" and more. I even went as far as putting together a list of the singles that I would have released from this CD - in order. Here it goes: "The Circle" (track #3) would be my pick to kick things off for the Katinas campaign. "The Circle" is an upbeat, R&B flavored jam that has a swingy, positive all the way around feel to it; no B-side. The second single would be "One More Time" (track #4), a ballad thanking God (who else?) for giving us the strength to go on when things get rough. If you've heard Hi-Five's "I Can't Wait Another Minute" from 1991, "One More Time" might remind you of that song - just a bit. I would also include the celebratory "So Good" (track #5) as a B-side to the "One More Time" single. Now we're off to the third single, which is "You Are God" (track #11), a power ballad that fits right in with most mainstream Christian music, and features the group's most powerful vocals. No B-side to "You Are God", just an R&B-ish, "Quiet Storm" version, an acoustic version (violins included) and an instrumental. The fourth and final single would be a double-A side: "Mama" (track #6) and "The Other Side" (track #7). "Mama" is the group's extremely moving tribute to their late mother (yes, the Katinas are all brothers) and is easily my favorite song on the album. I can't really listen to "Mama" without getting sad, but it helps to listen to "The Other Side" right after it. "The Other Side" is a comforting song that encourages the listener to look forward to seeing their dearly departed loved ones in the afterlife, and it really does have a healing effect. The rest of the album is a wonderful listen, but the songs I highlighted: "The Circle", "One More Time", "You Are God", "Mama", and "The Other Side" are the absolute 'must hear' tracks. Although the Katinas released a more pop-oriented second album in 2001, I believe this one is the stronger of the two... Thanks for reading! C.H.R. P.S. If you find yourself enjoying music by the Katinas, I also recommend checking out their labelmates, "Out Of Eden". Pop fans, start with 1999's "No Turning Back". (The Katinas have a song with them). R&B fans, start with 1994's "Lovin The Day". 1996's "More Than You Know" will make for a good sophomore experience for both Pop and R&B fans alike..."
Keep up the good work Katinas

"I bought the Katinas Destiny CD for my kids when my friend recommended it. It's great music and lyrics and my kids and I love it. Our favorites are It's real, Thank you, You Are, Sold Out believer and Who do you Love.
It doesn't have lyrics that sounds borderline. It is good, fun, christian music."

"The Katina Brothers are a first class guy group. The highlights of this cd are One More Time, The Other Side and Take Me Higher. But the true gem and modern classic on the CD is YOU ARE GOD. This songf will remian a Christian standard for years to come. It is worth buying the entire cd for this one powerful worship song. This is a MUST HAVE cd for anyone with a taste for quality Christian music."
