For a Texan Chris Tomlin's musical approach to worship sounds extraordinarily British. His haunting tones integrate beautifully with surging bursts of rock guitar while the production here by Matt Bronleewe (Jars Of Clay, Natalie Imbruglia) has the same kind of edge and resonance which sets a Matt Redman album out from the pack. Matt Redman, in fact, co-wrote one of the songs here with Tomlin while another of the gems here "Famous One" has already become a big hit in the US thanks to his exposure on the Passion Experience tour and the 'Passion' album. All in all, this is worship with all the heartfelt intimacy one associates with the very best. No wonder Soul Survivor have gone overboard on this talented Texan.
