This is truly totally excellent. Worship music that could easily inspire the most pagan of hearts to respond. It is basically good solid stuff played by competent musicians who aren't scared of a rootsy sound. By this I mean it is not over polished but has a gutsy feel throughout which makes you want to reach out to God whatever state you are in. The lyrics are dynamic in truth; no shame in proclaiming His name. There is a strong call to worship on many of the tracks with inspirational choir in one, excellent sax sounds, drums and good basic guitar as lead. Each track is unique and the lyrics are from the heart, reminiscent of the no compromise stance of Keith Green. The music is alive with goodness yet rough enough for a good stomp. This has to rate amongst the best and is a total must for anyone whatever your taste. It is simply beyond classification as it pushes the boundaries into the top ratings.
