Chris is a veteran Croydon-based pastor who, down the years, has popped up with occasional releases. This two-song single is easily the best thing he's ever done. The first, "So Beautiful", is a tender hearted worship ballad and, though the strong synths are a little overpowering, is genuinely appealing. Beautiful, in fact. The second song on this single (do they still call them flipsides?) is the surprise radio hit. A mid-tempo with a clanging synth riff which gives the song a hypnotic appeal as Chris appeals to listeners to spiritually wake up. The Single Version of the song, produced by Francis Gorini, is a completely new recording from the one heard on Chris' 'Separation. . .Is Just Illusion' album.
