Fifth album from the husband and wife duo with the funky, dance floor feel. More and more the Christian music industry is spawning this kind of act - Tavani's 'Urban Missionaries' being another great album this year. Here Billy and Sarah hit top form once again with ten tracks all designed to typify God's love in uptempo style. Best for me is Sarah's rendition of "I've Got Joy". There's great rhythm and soul sounds to this which give it real mainstream potential, yet not at the loss of it's ultra Christian message. The lyric might seem a little trite, "Some see my life and pity me, but I've got more than human eyes can see" after all hasn't it been written just to rhyme? But listen on to "Others see my life and question me, isn't there something that you'd rather be?". Still not convinced? Well, try the next line, here's the sucker punch, "Thanks but I don't need the sympathy, and I offer no apology, gave my life and I have no regret, because my Jesus never failed me yet" and you'll be of a greater understanding of how well crafter husband Billy's songs really are. Elsewhere tracks like "The Same All The Time" emphasise that both these artists have truly soulful voices and they're having a great time.
