Anthony, the son of minister Dr Tony Evans, is attracting a lot of attention with his smooth velvet vocals. This is his third album, the first for EMI Gospel, and the focus here is on worship. Contained here is "How Great Is Our God", Matt & Beth Redman's "Blessed Be Your Name" (driven by a beat that will get your feet moving) and a beautiful version of Tim Hughes's "Here I Am To Worship" which just oozes praise. The last two tracks on the CD are self-penned and move away from the worship style to more introspective writing. "The Way You Love Me" and the acoustic "Meaningless" demonstrate that Anthony can also write great songs and is not just an interpreter of other people's work. He pens a pretty good lyric or two here. Check out "I'm breathing but I can't survive/I'm living but I'm not alive" highlighting that we need God in our lives. This recording will open new doors to this gifted artist.

Excellent , excellent album. I'd never ever heard of Anthony Evans, but discovered this album at CLC, London whilst browsing for a birthday present for my sister. To cut a long story short, I ended up with 3 copies!Within the first 60 seconds, I was hooked. By Track #4 the tears were building up along with the urge to fall on my knees. Fast forward 10 days and I haven't stopped playing the album! There's an honesty and purity in this brother's voice that makes forget whatever it is you're going through and stand to your feet (or fall to your knees!) in reverence to God. this album will bring your focus back to God and reminds us gently that it's all about HIM. If you want to know what it means to 'lose yourself in worship' then this is the album for you. Enough said.

What an excellent album. Every song is sung so clearly and with such power. It has given me the opportunity to listen to songs I may not have. What a gift Anthony has. My favourites - The way you love me, let it rain and everlasting God
