Here's one to produce a flush of expectation amongst Jesus Music wrinklies. As older buffs will tell you, Alwyn was half of Malcolm & Alwyn, the Delirious? of their day, and now pastors a Calvary Chapel church in London. This intelligent, lovingly crafted album, a mix of worship and performance songs, demonstrates the Welsh veteran has lost none of his musical ability and with a fine production from another dues-paying veteran Norman Barratt, the whole thing manages to sound as fresh as a morning dip in a mountain stream. My only small gripe is that a couple of tracks go for a defiantly retro, old time boogie feel which kind of distract from the sensitive biblical songwriting and deftly textured accompaniments elsewhere. No matter. This is still a most welcome return from a major musical talent.
