From the opening seconds of ambient sound that launches "A Place To Go", before guitar and drums kick in, through to the closing catchy chorus of the rocking "Born Again", Andrew Jenkins Lamb proves that he has his musical finger firmly placed on the contemporary pulse. Whether it's ones that have the depth to deal with a spiritual reality in a non-clich├ęd way or it's the edgy pop attack and assured production of the album, here's a talent that you need to welcome into your music collection. AJL has an excellent expressive voice and whether he's tackling a tender ballad like "I Wish I Knew" which creatively describes the journey to salvation and the realities of the struggle to hear God speak or he's going full pelt on the more up tempo numbers, Andrew delivers. The understated rocker, "Praying For You" takes faith out of the Church and into the street whilst "Baptise Me" is built round an epic loop which suits the anthemic feel of the track. But for me the two outstanding tracks are "Angels" which is a poignant look at the pain of marital breakdown and the title cut only demonstrates that amidst all the understanding of real life and faith expressed elsewhere, Andrew has the heart of a poet! Astoundingly good across the board!
