Rollicking blues gospel from. I believe, a bunch of American Christian bikers who make a joyful sound unto the Lord and in the opener "Ain't No Message" have one of the catchiest gut bucket romps I've heard for many a day. When the; stray into more mainstream rock the effect dissipates somewhat though in Steve Rice they have a vocalist/guitarist whose edge and passion shine through while the straight ahead Jesus songs (all originals save for Carman's "Radically Saved" and Rick Founds' "Lord I Lift Your Name On High") relentlessly push home the message.

Straight from the heart gospel blues. A pick me up, stand me straight, get back on the narrow road song ensamble.

Love this album, wish there was more from this group.
