This album (their 18th studio one) by this classic melodic rock band is full of pop with rock and country leanings that remind me at times of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Lyrically they are very clear about their faith, from "All That Matters" which extols a Biblical theme to the title track which addresses the listener directly and "I'm Saved" which is a straightforward statement of faith. The vocal is pop with a power ballad tinge and the band pop with a rocky edge, sitting solidly and coming forward when required (such as the guitar licks in "I Wasn't Raised Like That" and the organ work on "I'm Saved") and rocking beautifully in songs such as "Good Fight Of Faith" which kicks off, picks a direction, settles into a groove and kicks it all the way to the final crashing chord. They're pretty versatile too, from the U2 riffs in "Don't Mess With Israel" to the reggae chops of "All That Matters", the latter also having a very sing-able chorus. Overall a very good album from a very good band and the decision to reform to record and play some gigs shows that they have lost none of their musical skill. David Huff has always been an excellent singer and now back with his old bandmates he really produces the goods.

Ive known the guys since 1974, They are one of the mnosy sincere performers in the business. you wount see bragging and arrogance around them. Their love for the Lord Jesus Christ is plainly heard as they sing. Im blessed to say they are my firends.
