Destiny

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Before Plus One -- before, even, 'N Sync -- the five Katina brothers were weaving boy-pop harmonies and smooth R&B grooves into a successful music career. The difference between this group and your garden-variety boy band is in the songs: The Katinas write most of their own material, putting insightful Christian lyrics to easy jazz-pop. In that vein, the 13-song Destiny finds the Katinas in a decidedly upbeat mood, their songs both positive in message and melody. Vocally, the brothers' harmonies have that classic boy-band polish, but there's no fluff on songs like the bluesy "You Are" and the jazz-inspired "Thank You." Don't miss "Ain't No Love," an upbeat number that...

Don't miss "Ain't No Love," an upbeat number that tosses a good bit of funk into the mix. Adding an island sentiment to the collection is "My Samoa," the brothers' tribute to their Samoan heritage. Christian pop music doesn't get any better than this.
All Music Guide - Steven Douglas Losey
The Katinas are a group of five brothers banded together to proclaim truth via a funked-out Christian dance groove. Destiny is the type of release that runs the musical gamut from hip-hop to R&B to adult contemporary. The Katinas manage to fuse the stylings of the Backstreet Boys via "It's Real," the poignancy of 98° with "Thank-You," and the beats of Usher on "If You Really." The instrumentation on the disc is very well-presented. At times acoustic guitars are at the center, while a funky bass takes the stage on others. Weaved throughout the entire disc are lyrics that represent five men in continual praise and awe of their creator. Vocally, Destiny could be compared to any successful boy band in the secular arena. The lead vocals are tight, the harmonies are rich, and the production precise. There's not a more soul-drenched cut on the release than the title track. Here, the band offers up a solemnly sung tune with all the flavor and vocal power of Johnny Gill. Stylistically, the Katinas have managed to blend several grooves onto one delectable platter. Destiny proves to be a disc that adds spice to this Christian genre.

    Simply Amazing

    I heard the Katinas when they were just kids and now they are all grown up and their music is incredible. This is the funkiest Christian album out there. You will love it. It has great lyrics, lots of energy and wonderful music.
