Following on from the first instalment of the 'Marble & Mortar' series earlier this year, the worship group from Phoenix, Arizona's 29:11 Church have released a second volume of characteristically intense songs that seek to praise Jesus. As with part one, there is a meditational feel to proceedings with synth washes and fluid moments extending all but one track to between five and 10 minutes in length. The protracted nature of the songs does make this heartfelt offering something of an aural endurance test at points and, whilst all involved are undoubtedly skilled in a musical sense, the general plodding tempo of each song together with a somewhat muddy mix and the general lack of memorable melodies doesn't help enhance the listening experience. Perhaps being there whilst this live album was being recorded and witnessing the intensity of the group's love for God first hand would tell a different story.
