Originally released in 2002 as a mini worship album by Hull-based husband and wife duo, this edition includes the 2003 single "Echoes". This track features a rather cool acoustic guitar part and sweet harmonies. I enjoyed this track more than the others, however the remixes of it weren't as great. The band version had some '80s grunge guitar riffs, which put me off. It could have worked if the sound was not so harsh. The R&B groove version of "Echoes" was basically the original song with an electronic drum part over the top, however, it did have the desired effect. The rest of the album was a pleasant acoustic set, lyrically God-centred but not too inspiring with strong female vocals and some not so strong male ones.

The R'nB Groove, doesn't sit too well with the rest of the CD, but on its own it has a lot of merit.
