A re-recording of an original album that reflects the musical talents of this five-piece outfit from London. Whilst originally categorised in the rock genre, much of this CD is delivered in a melodic, acoustic style. Outstanding lyrics accompanied by effective musical arrangements and good production make this CD a must have. The CD contains 11 self-penned compositions and details the band's journey with Christ, ranging from the all out rock of "Could This Be Love" through the beautiful and inspirational offerings of "Worthy" and "Everything To Me". A busy gigging life in both Christian and secular environments both in the UK and abroad have given Crossbeam a broad fan base which is elevating them to the position they now find themselves in. An excellent all round CD, looking forward to the new stuff.

Agreed, a solid album but not a touch on the live performances. Despite the pro-looking aesthetic appearence of their first two albums they are both 'home' recorded and produced by guitarist Steve on his humble PC! A great effort given the shoe-string budget however I get goose bumps imagining the quality that an experienced producer in a high-end recording suite might capture from these guys. An album worth having though I reccomend downloading some of the free live stuff available through their website or better still get out to see them. A class act to look out for!

A re-rcording of their orginal album done to reflect their improving musical talents. The album contains eleven self penned compositions. The songs detail the bands journey with Christ. From the Bands set openning seven which the band use to come on stage to, to the all out rock of could this be love, to the more reflective and powerful pray of change me, to the bueatiful thirst.
The atmosphere is of a band praising God as so often with these bands the studio album do not reflect fully the powerful praise ministory they display when playing live, A Good album
