Overview

The Katinas, one of Christian music's hidden treasures, issue a powerful and moving worship collection with Lifestyle. In addition to being the group's first worship release, it also marks their first live recording. Most of the 16 songs were recorded at the Katina brothers' home church in Nashville, and there's a decidedly church praise feel here. That's meant as a compliment; the energy and enthusiasm of praise & worship services is unique, and it's something ably captured here. Most of the songs are typical praise & worship fare -- "Lord I Lift Your Name On High" and "I Give You My Heart" -- but the Katinas give this familiar music fresh life, imbuing their signature eclectic pop traditions into each song. "Trading My Sorrows" gets an island feel, while "You Are Good" is downright funky, and "I Give You My Heart" is smooth-as-butter R&B. The Katinas have yet to deliver a dud; one of these days, they may have a Dove Award on their mantel to prove it.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Smith
Soulful, smooth-flowing vocal harmonies have been the trademark of the Katinas since the all-brothers group made its industry debut in the late '80s. This self-contained group, hailing originally from Samoa, has released a number of studio projects that have proved to be popular with fans within the gospel and CCM music sector. Lifestyle is the group's first live recording. The project's subtitle, "A Worship Experience," aptly describes what to expect musically from this offering. Recorded live at the group's home church, Nashville, TN's Bethel World Outreach Center, the project, produced by the Katinas and Bryan Lenox, includes such praise & worship classics as "Lord I Lift Your Name on High" and "I Love You Lord," as well as a reworking of their hit "Thank You." Two studio-recorded tracks close out the project, the soulful "Eagle's Wings" and the upbeat, guitar-driven "Rejoice."
