Easily the best British gospel house/rave music that's reached my tape deck to date. The band with the great name also have a decent grasp of what they're trying to achieve. Their stated aim is to "see a revival start with the young people of Manchester" and this album should certainly open enough doors for the Holy Spirit to breeze through. House, hip hop, rave (yep, the' real stuff at last) and rap all come together in a great tidal wave of energy and only rarely does it get too crowded. Just to go completely over the top, they've even mixed in several stabs of classical music which generally work well especially in the opening track (called "The Return Of The Queen Of Sheba"!). Only the inclusion of Rule Britannia in "Will You Come With Me" doesn't quite fit. But this is a quality release, crying out for wider distribution and more church raves for it to be played in.
