The album kicks off with one of Charlie's older classics, "What Colour Is The Wind", written around the plaintive comments of a blind girl.  This is an apt track to start with as it was the track that started to get Charlie massive air play in Ireland, and has led to his present exalted position in the British country music scene.  "Further Down The Road" is a strongly gospel-tinged track which is also fast paced and catchy.  "A Million Ways To Fall", "Part Of Me" and "I Dreamed I Was In Heaven" all stem from years ago when I used to enjoy Charlie as a solo act on the UK club scene.  Other tracks include "I Will Love You All My Life", "Things That My Ears Can Do" and "One More Time".  New songs are "Come Next Year" and "Love Love".  "Shine Your Light" is a true classic, a straight from the heart affirmation of his faith and is also the title of Charlie's excellent video.  Whilst this is not a gospel album in the normal sense, it's an album that has some very strong Christian content.  There are 18 tracks and running time is an hour.  It's a wonderful album!  If you only ever buy one Charlie Landsborough album, make it this one.
