Steve Gray, senior Pastor at World Revival Church in Kansas City, has brought his many years of experience as a musician to bear on the task of setting passages of the book of Psalms to music. Using a full orchestra as well as modern electronic instruments and combining Middle Eastern influences, the result is a lush and cinematic soundscape with the truth of the Scripture sung with close two part harmony to bring back, at times, memories of the Moody Blues and other '60s bands. The songs are well written, arranged and produced with a nice variety while still forming a cohesive album. The only real issue is something of a lack of variation in the vocals and the somewhat dated '60s feel in the arrangements. Both these perspectives, though, are subjective and could well be strong points of appeal for others.
