No apologies to tell you straight away we're in for another 10 squares here. Carman is one of the most outstanding Christian pop artists of our day. Period. He's head, shoulders and tonsils above most secular writers and performers, let alone Christian, with a quality, power, style and excitement few even get near, and fewer match. This double album compilation offers many of his best known songs spanning 25 years and also it boasts six new tracks. It is anointed, divinely appointed, not disjointed and you won't be disappointed. Every single track is inspired and inspiring, but also meticulously produced, played, pieced together and performed under the brilliant direction of a host of great American names, and all under the watchful ears (watchful ears?) of Rendy Lovelady, who also manages this true champion. Favourite tracks for me are "Addicted To Jesus", "The River", "Let The Fire Fall" and "The Champion". There isn't anything suspect, fluffed or duff, though; no padding, artificial cladding or substandardness. If this stuff don't grab our youth for Jesus, then we're not in revival.
