'Deep' is an enigmatic blend of electronic sounds, nylon string guitars, yearning vocals and superb lyrics making this a must have for any dance enthusiast. The funked up dance and oriental vibes on "Deep To Deep" kick this album off to a great start. There's no doubt this album could compete with any of the mainstream top notch dance acts with the energetic vocals of Stephanie Hearfield screaming "your love makes me wanna dance" on "Love Makes Me". This is a feel good album that is really uplifting and motivates you into worshipping God by dancing along to the pounding bass beats. The standout track for me however was on the industrial sounding "Beautiful People Acting Ugly" which lifts this 10-track album into a darker realm which sounds more metal than dance, but it works with Sy Roger's forthright lyrics spelling out truths of this world. "All around heaven is watching" uttered on "All Around The World" reminds us that no matter what we do God is watching and the questioning "who lit the fuse of the big bang?" on "Irreducible Complexity" shows just some of the issues radical evangelist Sy Rogers brings up. There is a choir featured on "Judge Of The Earth" which just adds to the mixture of fascinating sounds on this record. It is true quality.
