They might look a bit glinty-toothed, identikit Christian for Brit tastes but with production maestro Charlie Peacock at the controls you can be sure that this Manhattan Transfer/First Call-style harmony group are going lo produce the goods. The opener "Give It Up" is wonderfully catchy while the switch leads on the lightly funky "This Love" are pure class. Each of this foursome has a quality lead voice, Charlie provides most of the songs which exude joyful optimism and the whole thing overflows with production class. It will probably take a UK appearance or a serious marketing push for a significant number of CCM purchasers to buy this debut but it's still top quality inspirational pop.
