This is the second album from the Swedish songwriter and performer and as with his previous album, Sandlund's songwriting skills and performing abilities are clearly in evidence. The variety of Andreas' songwriting keeps the listener engaged while his lyrics are spiritually insightful and at times quite subtle. The styles displayed here include pop, inspirational balladry and rock. The song "It Is Your Grace" is an example of Sandlund's good ballad writing, and then later on he turns in a surprisingly convincing performance on "Be My Gravity" which fuses heavy rock and eastern influences.
