10 good pop-dance tunes, many of which are produced by Tony Silcock 'The Psalmist', appear on this debut release from the Biggin Hill School ministry crew. The music is ideal in its purpose to get teenagers interested in God: the lyrics are simple; the tunes are memorable; the beats are infectious; the influence of the Holy Spirit is obvious, though there is little mention of God by name. The only real draw-back is the distinct of a meaty 'low-end' or prominent bass lines, rendering the album virtually redundant as far as club DJs go, for home listening, a tweak on the 'eq' increases aural satisfaction. The gentle drum 'n' bass title track, the squelchy synths and worshipful rapping on 'Shelter', the catchy vocals of 'Getting Deeper' and 'Never Love another', and the mature rapping on 'I Need Love' and 'Release The Pressure' make for a well-rounded album which, when you see how far WWMT have gone since their first album, makes you realise how much potential 1:Lite really have!
