The three Willet brothers' latest release continues to develop their mix of rock music with worship lyrics with a strong emphasis on mission work - a lot of their income goes to funding a wide range of mission work throughout the world. Though styles might change, from the raw rock of "Searchlight" through a Southern rock tinged "Empty Grave" to the acoustic ballad "Miracles", Jeremy's expressive vocals are a constant holding the whole album together. The quirky "Come Quickly" takes on the subject of the second coming and false prophets while other songs have been clearly written for congregational worship. The production and arrangements are strong without swamping the raw energy and passion of the lyrics and makes for an album that will generate emotion. Worth a listen for those who like their rock on the indie side with Christo-centric lyrics.
