This is the debut release from a Staffordshire-based group, marshalled and produced by lead vocalist Tracey Taylor who has penned five of the six tracks on offer on this EP. The opener, "Drops Of Crystal Love", is the standout track with a nice vibey ambient-style rhythm. But elsewhere there are problems. There's no doubting the power in Ms Taylor's lungs, but at times the lead vocals and harmonies are rather discordant. Two or three of the arrangements, though competently executed, are without any particular sparkle. The one non-original composition on offer is "Studio Worship Experience", a medley of Laura Story's "Indescribable" and Third Day's "Your Love Oh Lord". I am not convinced by the vocal treatment of the latter. Okay for a first effort but there's considerable work to be done to take the group to the next level.

Maybe it would have been better if she'd not been pregnant and shattered whilst recording it! I have hopes for any future recording releases.
