This is the third album released by The Wall Brothers and sees the group developing their combination of west coast smooth music and fantastic vocal harmony work. In a lot of ways this is fairly typical '70s Jesus Music and to 21st century ears can sound a little twee in places so the recording of the children laughing and playing on the opening of "Little Children" immediately rings warning bells. But don't worry, the album soon settles down so "I Can Depend On You" has a touch of Hall & Oates about it and then the band starts firing on all cylinders on the funky "Since The Day I Was Born". This band are great when they're funky but then there is another sensitive side to them with ballads like "It's A Miracle" and "Now We're One" which still maintain that distinctive west coast sound. Overall, it's a shame that this very good band have become Jesus Music obscurities but then it's nothing that a CD re-release programme couldn't solve.
