This five-track EP follows a number one on the Swedish iTunes chart "The Depths Within" which is included here. It is a gentle worship song which draws you in with its atmospheric musical bedding, slowly building into an anthem which would grace many a live recording. "In Every Moment" was co-written with Reuben Morgan and Eric Lijero (Hillsong) and would easily sit on any Hillsong album. Connect Church are a Goteborg-based fellowship with a clearly talented bunch of worship musicians and leaders. The problem here is that much of the material fails to break new ground, playing it a little safe and offers little to help it stand out in a crowded worship music market. Connect is an offshoot of Hillsong, Australia and there is potential here for growth but for this particular release I'll be surprised if a song travels beyond their homeland.
