The amazing thing about this CD is not that the band themselves are from Norway, which in itself is quite interesting, but as three track efforts go, it's not half bad. Recorded and mixed over a space of three days, it's a polished and highly respectable debut. The group have been going since the autumn of 2005 and the three pop rock worship songs are as good as anything else I've heard this year. The first track "My All" rocks, while "Living For" is a bit more MOR. The final track "I Love To Be With You" starts with some lovely acoustic strumming and has a memorable chorus. Lead singer Bjorn Thomas Braarvig and his group should be congratulated for giving it their all and coming up with such an assured product. The additional vocals of Solveig Walaas really give the whole thing a nice polished edge. None of the songs outstay their welcome. If only all demos were this good.
