This album marks Daryl's fifth release on the Sparrow label. Those of you who read the article about him in CR25 will know what an inspiration he is and his story certainly reflects in the songs he leads, for example "He Delivered Me" and "He's Right On Time". The 12 tracks largely come from his Sparrow releases with two from earlier albums and one, a brand new recording, in which Daryl sings the old song "Victory In Jesus" unaccompanied for 6:39. The choir sound a bit dodgy hitting those high notes in "It Shall be Done", but throughout the album Daryl is clearly enjoying himself and the depth of emotion he shows throughout will surely touch many souls. Outstanding tracks have to be the rousing opener called "I Can't Tell It AH" and the breathtaking "Real". I wouldn't advise you to buy this just for the couple of songs you may not have heard, but if you have never heard Mr Coley this album is a must buy.

Merry Christmas,
God is so good. I have blessed someone with this album I had and was telling the Lord I needed to find it. I couldn't remember the name of it, but when I saw the cover I knew this is one of them I was looking for. God answered my prayer. Needless to say, I will be attempting to find out how to purchase this again.
Thank you, In Jesus' name
