Despite this being given UK Christian retail distribution through Authentic Music, this is in fact an album pitched at America's mainstream country market. It comprises of 12 new and very good country songs full of meaning and emotion but even the couple of tracks that talk about God, notably "Angels", come in the category of good country writing without being out and out gospel songs. This is a strong country album, with great vocals from Randy on some very good new country material, where morality comes to the fore (unlike some country honky tonk and cheating songs). My favourite track is "Train Long Gone", but then I am a sucker for country train songs! To sum up, this is one fine country album from one of America's finest singers.
