This is the follow up to the hugely successful 'Everlasting God' album. Originally released as 'Because Of Your Love', the album was renamed and re-released, possibly in recognition of the impact that the song "Adoration" has had on the worldwide church. This was always going to be a tough album as the standard set by its predecessor was so high. The opening title track shows a subtle musical evolution but retains much of the style and feel of "Everlasting God". A simple but effective melody with uncomplicated lyrics means this will surely be an established song in churches around the world. There are a couple of songs co-written with Paul Baloche, "Because Of Your Love" and "Our God Saves", the latter first appearing on Paul's own solo album from 2007 with the same name. At its heart this is an uplifting collection of songs expressing worship and adoration. The wall of guitar-based sound that adorns most songs is still there but somehow the overall production on this album is a little more cut back and sparse allowing room for the songs to breathe. This is most evident on the beautiful "All Who Are Thirsty" which begins with a subtle acoustic guitar intro and never allows the music to swamp the delicate melody line of the lead vocal. This is not as immediate an album as 'Everlasting God' but is one that grows on you with repeated listening.

After a recent run of magazine covers, awards (including one from ASCAP recognising the popularity of Everlasting God), and generally increasing buzz, there’s a fresh excitement about Brenton and his music.
