This album was recorded in English and included Dave Bainbridge, Dave Fitzgerald, Frank van Essen and Paul Heyman in the backing band. It starts all moody and ambient, almost Celtic (Messianic Iona, anyone?), with shofars and woodwinds, but three tracks in, the whole mood changes and we switch to rock praise and worship, with well-known stuff from the Soul Survivor, Hosanna and Vineyard songbooks, including "It's Rising Up", "Salvation Belongs To Our God", "Ancient Of Days" and "The Spirit Of The Sovereign Lord". Not at all what I was expecting, and rather disappointing, since I've heard better cuts of these songs on other albums.
