This is the New Wine worship leader's fourth album and it comes four years after 'Grace In The Wilderness'. A lot has happened in this time and the story of this can be followed to some extent in the songs - understandable as the whole albums focus is of telling the story of following Christ. Eoghan's songwriting is strong and quickly focuses onto the character of God and the way he impacts his creation. The list of songwriting collaborators working with the Irish songsmith includes Tim Hughes, Neil Bennetts and Brenton Brown and there are really no weak songs here. The full tilt opener "This Is Our Story" is sure to become as well known as the track that follows it, "Blessing, Honour", which is given the full on rock treatment as well. There are some nice changes of pace with the haunting "All To You" and the wonderful closing track "With Me". For a track to standout here it does have to be very good and both "This Is Our Story" and "The King Has Come" do stand out and I would expect them to be heard a lot at events over the next few years. A genuinely outstanding worship set, Eoghan's best ever in fact.
