A grassroots offering from a Gloucester pop worship band, from the opening guitar riff it is obvious that there is a fair degree of ska influence here. The band's normal guitar/drum/bass line up is augmented here by David Pickering adding some great keyboard lines as well as engineering and producing the album - so as you might guess the quality is excellent. The songwriting is also good with some nice hooks and a great mix of rhythm to keep the interest going. Unfortunately, the vocals featuring the unison voices of Angela and Lorah take things down a peg and there does not appear to be much in the way of dynamic range and by the end the whole album gets a tad dull. An uplifting album and I am sure we will hear more from these guys and girls.
