This is another offering of improvised worship from the Riveras, this time produced in collaboration with their long-time friend Don Potter. The 11 tracks (primarily keyboard led, with Potter embellishing with acoustic guitar and with occasional cello and harp) run seamlessly from one to the next, giving 46 minutes of music in total and they are the result of sessions at which they invited Potter to "hang out in the Spirit". The result is a recording which for this reviewer, not present at the sessions, lacks structure and direction and which therefore is difficult to appreciate and enjoy. The words sung and the music played are very basic and contain no surprises or elements of interest, and the value of the piece must therefore reside almost exclusively with the power felt and experienced at the time of recording.
