This latest album from the veteran of UK praise and worship is as the name might suggest, deliberately stripped down to create an intimate approach to worship using only acoustic instruments. Amongst the host of big budget worship albums currently causing the racks of many a Christian bookshop to creak, this is a refreshing change. No sign of horn sections, swaying choirs or searing guitar breaks here, just a bloke with a guitar singing songs to his Creator. Although a lot of Dave's songs find their way into most popular song books, I don't feel that this album was necessarily intended as a resource. Nevertheless, some of the songs would lend themselves very well to corporate worship such as "Jesus, Jesus, I Love Your Name", "Grace And Mercy", "I Will Trust", "Holy Holy Is The Lord", and "Prepare The Way". "Heart Ever Been Moved" is an evangelistic song calling people to observe the world around them and consider the God who made it all. Another song though, "Fiddle And the Drum" with its Irish jig feel, reminds me of The Beautiful South! The whole ethos of the album is to encourage the listener to take time with God in worship alone and not be so busy that we miss it. A fine album from one of the UK's most enduring worship leaders.
