Kim's second solo album is deeply infused with lyrics moved by and aiming at worship, reflecting changes to her life and ministry over the years. The Californian singer's beautiful breathy vocals are skillfully woven into the strong melodies. From the uptempo opening track "Be With You Now" through to the pulsing synth rhythm of the title track which would not be out of place on a Hillsong United album, this is full of good things. The sublime duet "Our Souls Cry Out" with one-time Hawk Nelson man Jason Dunn and a very nice piano-led version of "Be Thou My Vision" are particular standouts. Throughout, the arrangements are well crafted and produced, as would be expected with the talented bunch of musicians and producers that are on board for this project. Rounded off with the fittingly atmospheric "Remain" this is a great album and well worth getting hold of.
