Daniel Chua is a musicologist and composer from Malaysia, now living in London. This album is a collection of contemporary worship songs that he has written, but performed by a variety of Christian artists. The title track is a good song and would be very adaptable to suit a variety of worship bands and settings. It is a worship song from the heart with a good catchy hook, although I am not convinced that this version presents it in the best light. Musically it's good, but the vocal performance, for me, is a little weak. Unfortunately, this is about the highlight of the album. None of the other songs seem particularly inspiring, which is a great disappointment given Daniel's background and experience. This, in his own words, is intended to be a worship album for everybody, and the result is that it sounds very similar to many other worship albums that are readily available. The old adage goes that you cannot please everybody all of the time, and I would much prefer if he had used his undoubted skills and gifts to be more exclusive rather than inclusive. To conclude, if you want something light and inoffensive, you may well love this. Otherwise, I would surmise that it is unlikely to appeal to you.

Mr. Chua, I love the CD of "YOU ARE THE ONE" you produced. May I know where I can buy it again for my friends in HK??

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
