The reason for the production of this tape is to raise money for the work of God in Bulgaria - thus the title - and it is actually quite good! The sleeve is well produced and the songs are all original, which can be good or bad - in this case it's a plus. The lead vocalist changes with nearly every song, which gives variation. I must pause here to say that Haydn Wood stands out as an excellent singer. The songs are good, but not ground breaking - "Where Is The God Of Elisha" starts off promisingly with a lively rhythm and some vigorous singing on the chorus, but unfortunately the decision to rap the verses lets it down, it just doesn't fit. Altogether, a good collection of original songs, performed to a reasonable standard and there are relatively few musical and lyrical cliches to let it down. So if you are looking for a worship tape without a rerun of all those songs you've heard a hundred times already, get this. It's a good price and your money will go to a good cause. Your copy will raise 500 leva for the Bulgarian church - quite a fistful! Copies of the music are also available. Send £1.00 and an A4 sized SAE.
