In case you wondered, it's actually pronounced "fay-dra" and it actually means "anointed one" so perhaps there's a bit of self-fulfilment taking place here as Phadrah lives up to her name. Coming on like a sultry rock chick on the album's cover, the music pitches her in an edgy melodic environment and her self penned songs are liberally sprayed with funky busy rock or sensitive cool arrangements. There are some memorable moments here with 'Tears', cataloguing some of society's more sad, sordid and damaged stories and expressing the compassion of Christ. "Be There With You" is a ministry song which places Jesus with us in the midst of the storms. "Starting All Over' is a bit of funky rock whilst 'Comfort Zone' is a reminder to allow God to mould us and push us out of comfort into challenges. All this is fine stuff but this is yet another album that is competent but not classic.
