Reviewed by James Orotayo

The fourth solo offering from the former Desperation band frontman is less diverse in style than his two previous albums but still has a mix of songs that make it worth listening to. Guitars feature heavily on the album from the opener, "Bless The Lord", through to the closing song "I Am Free" but blended in between the louder songs you will also find more meditative pieces such as "Call On The Name Of The Lord" and "According To His Word". Jared, who is a worship team leader at New Life, Colorado Springs, has put together a group of songs with memorable lyrics and a sound which will connect with youthful congregations. Most songs contain lines that have been lifted straight from Scripture. All of these points make this album a reasonable source for new songs for corporate worship, though its structural predictability means that it could be easily overlooked.
