South Florida siblings Heather, Dominique and Claudette Farquharson are the worship leaders at the Mishken Messianic Congregation and have released a two part album with this being the second instalment. Proceedings kick off with the slick R&B of "Old Ways" which contains a stark warning against destructive relationships getting in the way of the believer's walk with God and, along with the radio friendly pop of "Never Alone" and the moody "Searching", it promises great things from this tight knit group. Unfortunately though, proceedings dip somewhat with the slow soul of "I Don't Want To Know" and the stripped-back acoustic track "Lord I Love You" which, despite bringing the girls' harmonies to the fore and certainly praising God lyrically, come across as workmanlike and unimaginative. Things pick up near the end of this seven song release with the accomplished "Not A Dream" but it could be argued that, by leaving out some of the weaker tracks, the two discs of 'The Journey' could have been melded into one to avoid it being a hit and miss outing from this undoubtedly talented group.
