A mixed bag of five guitar-driven songs from this church in Florida. Highlight is a decent version of "In Christ Alone" by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend - one of the best recent worship songs, little known in America until introduced there by the pastor of Calvary Chapel Merritt Island. It's good but doesn't add anything to the recordings of the song already available in the UK. Before that you have to endure an excruciating medley of "Nothing But The Blood", "Are You Washed In The Blood" and "Power In The Blood". "You Alone", a new song, is nothing special, "Praise My Soul The King Of Heaven" is given a new tune that isn't as good as the old one (but with a nice chorus); then the CD finishes with its other highlight, the gentle acoustic "Gracious Redeemer", written and sung by the underrated Mary Barrett.
