There isn't a great deal to say about the Brighton-based worship team that hasn't already been said, their successful 17 years of ministry speaks for itself. This is a compilation of their best known congregational worship songs. It's a welcome addition to their catalogue, coming three years after their more performance-based 'Best Of.' album and bringing together some of the most infectiously singable worship songs of the last two decades. As a band they have explored a variety of genres, but here the flavour of the month is fairly homogenous rock. The album doesn't suffer for this though, and in fact the remnants of Phatfish's acid jazz roots can still be heard, for example in more reflective songs like "The Cross". The quality of Nathan Fellingham's Delirious?-influenced songwriting is evident in Sunday morning staples like "Holy Holy" and "There Is A Day", as well as lesser known tracks like "Pouring Out". Overall, this is a collection that does justice to a well loved group.
