A very pleasant surprise release from ICC, this one features singer/songwriters Clive Case and James Shears from South Africa but now based in the UK. In their press release their sound is compared to Michael Card and John Michael Talbot and certainly their wistful meditative lilt is likely to attract fans of those particular artists as well as any number of other acoustic-tinged musicianaries. The laid back mood of much of this material makes it an album which takes its time to grow on you but grow on you it does, with the sheer strength of melody and depth of lyrics engaging the listener. Not the most innovative album you'll hear this year but definitely one worth investigating.
