Any worship leader in Survivor's Emerge series is worth hearing with their impressive track record when it comes to nurturing up and coming musicians. Ben is no doubt a highly talented young worship leader as he broke into a very energetic opener "Come Into The Light" that will have you out of your seat and dancing around the living room or singing from your car. Ben gives an enthusiastic start to the album and such energy is evident throughout this seven-song introduction to the young worship leader benefiting from Tim Hughes' mentoring. The lyrics from the fiery "You Are" and "You're The Light" are positively refreshing and send a good message out to those listening. The downside for me was that none of the songs here stood out as being particularly fresh and had begun in parts to sound samey. With the obvious and very apparent talent that the young Ben possesses it would have been good to hear him stretch himself more with more musical and lyrical variation.

Ben Cantelon is without doubt one of the most original, passionate and insightful worship leaders of this current generation. Ben's songs have application in both a personal and corporate setting, and are appreciated by a wide section of the church. I commend Ben for writing an album that is uplifting, inspiring, honest and fresh.

When my 13 year old gave me this cd to listen to last year, I fell in love with song number 6 right Let Me Go....I played it all day ...over and over and so soothed!

I also really like playing Remain and Worthy and You Are. The whole cd is excellent and awesome! GLORY TO GOD!Great lyrics and a new sound, mixed with sensitivity to the Holy Spirit took me into His presence.
