The loopingly funky opener "All Comes Down" penned by Billy Gaines and Michael Omartian (the latter veteran producer being the man behind the recording desk for this set) is among the best cuts the husband/wife team have ever recorded and will clock up extensive airplay. But there is much else here almost as'good. Sarah purrs the lead on "Freedom" as Dann Huff puts up a nagging rhythm guitar riff while the slowish "Come On Back" again contains a nifty hook. Lyrics punch home their biblical messages and I for one would suggest that this set, the first from Billy and Sarah's new production company SoundHouse, is easily their best ever album.
