Ten songs plus 1 remix, used for worship at the Brown Bear Pub (run by the Icthus Christian Fellowship) in south east London. The tape as a whole has a light poppy feel and excellent, clear worship lyrics. How exciting to find yet another group producing their own worship music which breaks the mould that was set by the sixties folk guitar. My favourite songs are "Move On (With Jesus)", "We'll See It AH" and "Clean Me". The first two are worthy of any rave praise with a bubbly pulsing quality reminiscent of The Beloved and Electronic. "Clean Me" is a slow brooding number, perfect for meditative worship, which illustrates the tape's diversity. My only criticisms are the quality of the vocals on some songs and the 'wild party' sounds on the remix which are a tad naff. Over all, an excellent selection of pop worship songs well worth buying.
