The intro of Nina Sky's self-titled debut announces twin sisters Natalie and Nicole Albino's lofty intentions to break down boundaries of style, incorporating varied sounds from R&B to reggae to rock. The twosome backs up its boasts with an album's worth of curious, diverse, engaging pop.

NINA SKY opens with the infectious, thumping, dancehall style of the sensuous single "Move Ya Body," a track showcasing the Albino sisters' dulcet, flexible vocals. The duo follows up that dance-club beat by slowing it down a bit on the nimble ode to strong womanhood, "You Deserve," for which they enlist one of the masters of that form, Betty Wright. They also display the ability to play gangsta on the tough-minded "Let It Go." All the songs on Nina Sky's debut were penned or co-penned by the sisters, who show a nascent knack for clever phrases. Perhaps the sky is the limit for this fetching duo.

What the critics say...

Rolling Stone (p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[T]here's enough sturdy R&B and diva sass to keep you listening."
Entertainment Weekly (p.76) - "[T]he spare, deliberately tribal 'Move Ya Body' is just the girls introductory salvo." - Grade: B
