As any American Christian radio listener will tell you, Mr Heath is one of the leading singer/songwriters on the scene. Once again he teams up with studio maestro Dan Muckala and once again co-writes the majority of the songs with Jason Ingram. The tracks here are acoustic guitar-driven and show all of his craft. One particular standout is the gentle "Only Water", a powerful number which nimbly fuses the world's need for clean water with the world's need for the Spirit's outpouring. The title song deals with how the world is growing cold while "Light In Me" reminds us that we can shine for Christ. A couple of the songs near the end sound a tad undeveloped and there's no song on here which quite matches the majesty of his mega-hit "Give Me Your Eyes". But on the whole this is still an engaging set from a thoughtful songsmith.
