Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Currently this album can hardly be prized off the Cummings' CD player. A thrilling demonstration that America's Christian counter-culture can produce pop rock of the highest quality. Now, of course, those already familiar with this gem (which recently hit the number one spot in America's Christian music charts - a unique achievement for a debut album) will point out the slight musical debt to REM while other longer-in-the-tooth buffs might want to mention the band of folk rockers owe a smidgen to the Californian soft rock sound of the 70s. But whatever their influences, these guys have come up with an album chock-a-block with songwriting craft, production skill, creamy harmonies and luminous discipleship. Impossible to pick a favourite, and there's even a 'secret' hidden track for trivia nuts.

In late fall of 1995, I heard a song on secular radio, plus I saw the video clip shortly thereafter. The song was "Flood";WOW!! what an uplifting, powerful song that showcased the true talents of these guys. "Love Song for a SAVIOUR" is a favorite as well as "Flood". I luv "Liquid" the cd's opening # (you can hear a touch of the sound of the pop-group Enigma).
This cd does not disappoint; ccm has risen!! "Sinking" is also a number that captures; such well-crafted songs birthed so wonderfully into the world. A great cd of songs from start to finish!
GOD Bless! - Don
