When one considers that the bulk of the tracks on this compilation emanate from three albums, which each received rave reviews from Cross Rhythms in their respective years of release, it may seem a little over critical to bring a negative note into this review. But one has to say that despite the quality of the modern rock worship first heard on 2003's 'You Alone', 2005's 'Be Glorified' and 2008's 'You Make Everything Work Out', scrambling most of the tracks together into a different order does the British worship man no favours. The fact that there are two tracks here ("Clap Your Hands" on CD 1 and "Light Of The World" on CD 2) which have never been previously released might, I suppose, attract a few long term admirers of Gareth's work to this confusing collection but the truth is those wanting to investigate Robinson's anthemic and at times passionate worship songs would be better advised to search out the original releases which seem much more focused.
