Ali is a worship leader based in Beverley in Yorkshire and is currently a member of the worship academy run by Andy Bromley and Chris Bowater. This is a very impressive, worship-orientated debut album. If you enjoy new, up and coming Christian UK songwriters then I think this songsmith is one to watch. Mr Crompton has written some very good songs bristling with strong melodies and memorable imagery. Likewise, session-seasoned producer Howard Williams really has caught the essence of Ali's songs and has produced a very pleasing debut album. My only criticism would be that Ali's voice is occasionally a little weak plus it doesn't always suit the songs he's written. But could this CD be an opportunity to introduce other singers? I really recommend you consider this to add to your worship music collection.
