Only heard a couple of tracks off this as yeT , but it sounds brilliant and organic. I dont know what the guy who sings about Delilah and sexbombs personal convictions are, but this is emotional dynamite.
Perhaps the man from the valleys is having his own Welsh revival. Hope the Christian press dont smother these first public wakings of faith by expecting him to now produce only gospel albums.
