Reviewed by Tim Holden

The fifth album from the Californian worship leader and with the jangling guitars and driving rhythm of the opening track "Heaven Fall Down" this at first hearing may seem like stereotypical modern worship. But a closer listen will reveal the songwriting craft and skilful production which go into each of Wickham's albums and this could easily be his strongest yet. The creativity is particularly evident in "Joy" with its synth lead intro, floating vocal line and deep lyrics. Phil's clear and passionate vocal delivery nestles at the front of the mix and is beautifully complemented by the varied arrangements and excellent musicianship displayed throughout the album. It is a sign of the maturity and depth of this album that no one track jumps out as being head and shoulders above the rest and that any two listeners will probably choose different tracks as their favourite while the Scripture-based lyrics draw us continually back to the Godhead.
