Universal Records - 2004 - 48 minutes

Nina Sky promise us funk, reggae, hip-hop, rock, R&B, alternative, jazz, funk and soul...music that is limitless. It's a tall order, but the sisters' debut release is certainly a hybrid of most of those musical genres.

Twins Nathalie and Nicole Albino have a beautiful harmonious quality to their voices that ensures that you sit up and listen. Combined with some superb musical arrangements and powerful backing vocals, Nina Sky hits hard.

In 'Move Ya Body' the Albino twins have found a funky tune that will inspire people to take an interest in them. It's a good starting point for the album. From 'You Deserve' to 'Your Time', the vibe of 'Nina Sky' is positively upbeat, despite undercurrents of bitterness in its content.

From the peppy beats of 'Runaway', the album reverts to deeper content in 'Surely Missed', a strong highly charged ballad - showing a maturity in performance beyond their years. Well worth a listen.
