The smooth 'n' silky side of things from the brother who used to sing with Commissioned. Awash with super-slick contemporary sounds that have travelled light years from the roots of gospel music. A certain blandness emerges from the songs as each track trots along with no real impact or sense of adventure. Good voice this, but very indistinctive from the multitude churning out this sort of material. Can't find a song worth singling out for special mention. "I Bowed On My Knees" is maybe a bit more like it, his version of the evergreen "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" is not bad and that's about it. I wouldn't bother if I were you.
