The father and son duo from Swansea returns with another good value album, 12 songs, 57 minutes of music. When I reviewed their first two efforts, I was pleased to see and hear good quality music, with perfectly acceptable production values; given what no doubt is by mainstream or major CCM label standards a tiny budget. The recording was done in Tom's newly established home studio in Bristol. If I recall from the other albums, Chris sings and writes the songs, and Tom does just about everything else. A good mix of moods, from uptempo praisers, gentler reflective numbers, a couple based on psalms, and one with a rather unusual title "The Reluctant Praisers Doxology", using Thomas Ken's familiar words for the verses, with bridges where the mood is deliberately downbeat, as the song tries to come to terms with those times when moody restless sinners such as me find it difficult to praise the Lord. An interesting release that's worth investigating.
