This debut album from the 26-year old from Lynsted, Kent, is full of creativity and enthusiasm and is a real spiritual tonic to listen to. Featuring 10 self-penned tracks, the album opens with "Freefalling", displaying Anna's clear, pure voice backed by attractive vocal harmony and an up-beat band accompaniment. She has chosen to include "Take It All" twice, once acoustic and once as a dance mix, and it's a strong song though the latter is unlikely to make it to clubland. I liked the title track a lot, with an interesting chord structure while Anna's voice seemed to gain extra depth. I particularly enjoyed the electric guitar solo and I loved the Latin feel of the multi-layered percussion. Her lyrics use standard Christian images but none the worse for that.
