Mal is of course a music veteran with a great deal of experience in both CCM and mainstream pop. The album, which has a soft rock feel, contains a whopping 13 songs, all of which have a strong lyrical content and, as with many singer/songwriters, Mal's delivery works best on his own material. Production values compare favourably with many top British CCM albums and the musicianship is tight, but pleasantly understated. I suspect that the understatement is exactly what Mal and his crew were aiming for, as they obviously had more to give. My favourite Mal-penned tracks were "God Is Love" and "His Body Was Broken", with Stuart Townend's "How Long" as the best of the rest, but the whole album stands up well as a package. I'll keep listening to this!
