In one word: superb! If this is all you read of this review, this is the only word you need to remember. Luminate are a perfect blend of passion and rock. Sitting with ease alongside the sounds and styles of big mainstream bands such as The Fray, The Killers and Coldplay, their ambient rock sound carries their positive messages of hope and love far beyond the boundaries of the walls of the Church. 'Come Home' is masterfully produced to a very high quality with bucket loads of little musical touches and interest dotted throughout the album and anthemic choruses keep you hooked. "Hope Is Rising" is a very strong and stirring song containing extremely powerful lyrics and musically arranged to perfection. "Innocent" is as thought provoking as it is challenging and "New Beginnings" encourages us to rise above the apathy in today's society and to have the courage and strength to pursue our dreams with purpose. Although the band from Tyler, Texas have only been around for five years, if they continue to make albums as good as this one, they will be around for many more years to come!
