After the success of the brilliant 'Exodus' album which saw Hunter's music break out into the mainstream via games consoles and movie theatres, he returns with what they are calling an EP. Okay, so it's only six tracks but it clocks in at 43 minutes which is longer than a lot of albums I buy these days! The opening cut "Open My Eyes" is a furious track that continues the adventure begun on "Go" from 'Exodus'. Listening to it, you can just hear it as the soundtrack for an action movie. Other highlights here include the equally fast paced blazing sound of "Come On" and "Wonderful" is, well, wonderful with its gentler vibe creating some fabulous atmospheres. There's plenty of atmosphere on "Lifelight" as well which feature Neil Wilson from Steve. Got to say though that my favourite is "Alive" which is upbeat and pretty funky and features vocal contributions from Christine Glass. The results are a selection of songs that continue to place Andy Hunter at the cutting edge of dance music whether in the Christian or mainstream scenes.
