Payday (featuring R. Kelly), It's Not Heaven If You're Not There (featuring Lalah Hathaway), If He Doesn't Come Tonight (featuring Ricky Van Shelton), That Extra Mile (featuring R. Kelly), Tradewinds (featuring Michael McDonald), All You've Ever Been Was Good, Money Motive, Love Will Never Die (featuring Kenny Loggins), Heaven Belongs To You, He Said Go (featuring BeBe Winans as a background vocalist)

The opener, "Payday" features R. Kelly. This song was written by Carvin Winans and Wayman Tisdale, and was also produced by R. Kelly.  The Winans as a whole sound harmonized around the end (lyric: "Keep Movin'...Don't Stop Now").

"It's Not Heaven If You're Not There" features Lalah Hathaway in a duet with Marvin Winans.

Ricky Van Shelton's is featured in a duet with Marvin Winans on the song "If He Doesnt Come Tonight".  Ricky Van Shelton brings a  touch of Country music to this song.  It sounds nice, I like the piano, guitar, and the tone of this song.

"That Extra Mile" is an most definetly an inspirational song, one of the album's best songs! It starts with a beautiful piano piece, followed up with some nicely arranged music. Ronald and R. Kelly are the lead singers on this song and it sounds NICE! I feel that this can easily be one of the best tracks on this album. The beats up sounds really NICE!

"Tradewinds" was written Michael McDonald, and has nice strong tenor and background vocals. An alright song.

"All You've Ever Been Was Good" sounds pretty good. I like the horns on this song! Marvin really sings this song! I like the lyrics and music! The music will make you want to dance!

The next track, "Money Motive" doesn't really have that "click" - It's lyrics make a good point, but the lyrics and the music don't flow in my opinion. It doesn't even feature all of the Winans, just Carvin and his younger sister Debra "Debbie" Winans.

"Love Will Never Die" is a nice track, a duet of Carvin Winans and Kenny Loggins, and I wouldn't have realized that Michael was the only background vocal in this song if I hadn't read the album information. He does a nice job. This is a nice song - The tenor sax sounds nice at the end.

"Heaven Belongs To You" is one of my longtime favorites on this album. Though arguably not the best, I still like it. All of the Winans sound good on this song. This song was written by Marvin, Michael, and Regina Winans.

"He Said Go" is sung nicely by Ronald Winans and features BeBe Winans as a guest background vocalist. This is a nice song to sit down and listen to. I'm not sure, but I think that this song's lyrics were meant to parallel with those of "Please Believe In Me" also sung by Ronald, on The Winans' album Heart & Soul".

My favorite tracks on this album are "Heaven Belongs To You", "Payday",  "All You've Ever Been", "He Said Go", "Love Will Never Die", and "That Extra Mile".
