Style: Genre-bending gospel; compare to Marvin Sapp, Shirley Caesar, Blind Boys of Alabama

Top tracks: "If Jesus Can't Fix It," "Jesus Kind of Man," "We Will Overcome"

Gospel's pioneering contemporary quartet celebrates fifty years of genre-expanding recordings by putting their fifteen greatest musical moments on one single disc. In typical gospel fusion fashion, the Grammy-winning group—often tagged as the "The Temptations of Gospel"—run the gamut from toe-tappin' tent revival to retro R&B and interactive four-square worship, reminding listeners of why the group has been a favorite tourmate of mainstream dignitaries like Marvin Gaye, the Rolling Stones, and Paul Simon. But it is the charming southern-soul walkup of "We Will Overcome," and the seamless track cataloguing that truly demonstrates the legendary outfit's historic appeal.
