A pleasant, if short (10 tracks, 36 minutes) new album from one of America's up-and-coming Christian singer/songwriters. The enigmatic title track refers to the difficulty we can have in finding God on a consistent basis - a bit like smelling the colour nine. A bit clever-clever for my liking, and personally I would rather listen to lyrics that encouraged me to push into God. However, the music is likeable and there are some other good tracks here. The lyrics are, generally, refreshingly non-religious, although some get close to being a bit sugary and American for these British ears. Okay if you're a fan, otherwise there is musically more original stuff around.
