This is a rather strange item from an Albuquerque-based independent artist. The first track, "Hallelujah, The King Is Born" sums up the style of the album. It has the bass going off on a jazzy groove, an acoustic guitar repetitively strumming in the background, while a lead guitar also picks up and down the scales. Hardly any melody, no percussion and it's very simply and cheaply produced. There is also the occasional wrong note. Vocally, the melodies are simple campfire chants. Often, Bud doesn't sing (when he does he's Dylan on a bad day) but speaks his deep voice over the guitars grooving away. Percussion doesn't feature except on a few tracks, and due to the production doesn't really sound too good when it is used. When the style becomes more upbeat, such as on "God's Timing" the acoustic strumming becomes a little less convincing.
