It's been a privilege listening to this album while driving to work in Devon. Norman, from the US state of Georgia, a popular singer with a great voice, has 11 new tracks here, generally concerned with searching for, finding and experiencing faith. He has a change of producer for this album, working with Matt Bronleewe (Rebecca St James) and Mitch Dane (Jars Of Clay). While Bebo still writes his own songs, he now also includes collaborations with other writers and there are two songs, "Disappear" (Chad and Jess Cates, who have written for Avalon and Rebecca St James) and 'Soldier' (Brandon Heath), which are not even co-written by him. Each song seems to fit him like a glove and with arrangements easy and varied on the ear, from ballad to up-tempo, there's not a dud track to be found. Personal favourites are "Soldier", with its jangly guitar sound and anthemic chorus, and "Borrow Mine", with its encouraging lyrics.
