With the minimum of fuss Lincoln worship leader Andy has slowly but surely established himself as a gifted crafter of congregational worship songs and an anointed enabler in helping people make the divine connection. As a regular treck of other British worship leaders have done before him, Andy has now gone off to Nashville to record an album which will hopefully elevate him to international status. Andy certainly deserves it. There are plenty of wonderful moments here. The opener "Glorious Majesty" written by Andy with producer John Hartley and US praise singer Gary Sadler is an anthemic gem, "Clothed With Splendour" has some poetic imagery ("Clothed with splendour and majesty/You wear light like a robe/The heavens from your sheltering hand unfold") over a droning guitar figure from Gary Burnette, while Andy's version of "Holy God You Reign" penned by the hugely underrated Graeme Clark is a delight o the ear and a lift to the spirit. An album with the songwriting craft and inventiveness in the pop rock arrangements to connect with church goers everywhere.
