Mr E's Chris Haines releases 'But God' album

THE ONE-TIME bass player of Southampton's gone-but-not-forgotten band Mr E, Chris Haines, has released a solo album. 'But God' is released independently. Wrote Chris about the album's title, "Man has a habit of getting himself into deep trouble. But God has an even deeper inclination to do good to us. We've messed up, big time. But God stands watching like a Father, rich in mercy, abounding in steadfast love, ready to receive with open arms all who return to him. We deserve to be cast away from his presence forever. We didn't want him, we haven't thanked him, nor glorified him. But God is forever our Rescuer, our Redeemer, our Reconciler, our Restorer, our Reassurance, our Righteousness, our Rest, our Refreshment and our Resurrection Power." CR

Hi guys! I have recently discovered Chris Haines' 'But God' CD and I absolutely love it! I'd certainly like more people to hear it and so am putting comments in where appropriate.
I am fairly regularly handed/sent new worship albums and, although I play each one I receive (don't always make it through the whole CD) - this one, 'But God' by Chris Haines, was totally different.
Here we have both a musician and a talented songwriter. The guitar work is refreshingly good, and the pace of the album is a thorough joy, and it is theologically and pastorally sophisticated.
If you are looking for a refreshing new talent then you should definitely, definitely listen to this album.
