AllMusic Review by

The debut by brothers Louie, Jamie, Isaac, Mark and Aaron Gutierrez proves to be a fusion of hot Latin rhythm and harmonic praise. Thanks to a deep songwriting pool and producers Alberto Salas (Santana, Los Lobos), Rex Rideout (Luther Vandross), Jason White (Kurt Carr) and Phil Sillas (Natalie Grant, Plus One), the album is fueled by the contributions of a diverse talent pool. This ends up as both a strength and a detriment, as the resultant AC pop on the album's second half seems a bit distant from the sizzling dance tracks "You Who Reigns," "Te Alabo" and "If I Should Fall." But the group's harmonies remain stimulating even when the rhythm cools off. Hence, "Just to Know You" and other praise anthems retained the brothers' stirring passion and earmarked them for greatness.
