The switch from Kingsway to Fierce! for New Zealand's premier praise and worship ministry will hopefully give some much deserved profile to one of the most powerfully anointed ministries in the world Church. For, make no mistake, Libby and Wayne Huirua and the other Parachutists have got hold of something from God in their wistfully tuneful praise songs. Stylistically, the band have always covered most of the bases from rock-tinged numbers to slinky R&B to middle of the road balladry ala Hillsong. So, in an effort to bring a little more stylistic coherence into this CD, Fierce! have taken off three songs from the Australian release and added two - the pop rock anthems "All My Life" and "Jesus" from the band's 2000 'Love' album, unrleased in the UK. A good move though UCB Europe listeners might be disappointed that the compilers couldn't have found room for the playlisted ballad "Touch Me Lord". Libby Huirua has an exceptional voice and when the song is top notch, like the so-catchy opener, the effect is riveting.
