A well produced album of up-tempo worship and praise tracks sung in both Yoruba and English from a London-based artist. From the opening track "Indescribable" to the final "Jesus", the infectious African melodies are guaranteed to get you praising regardless of your linguistic capabilities. Feeling overwhelmed by life? "Yin Oluwa" serves as a heavenly reminder of God's character and faithfulness; "The Living One" ("Alaaya") focuses on the victory of Jesus. "Praise Alone" implores listeners to make praise central to living, regardless of circumstance. I would challenge anyone to listen to this joyful album and not re-assess life's priorities. Just one warning: don't attempt to listen to this and sit still.
