A three-track single from a London-based collective who have already managed to make it onto TV under the leadership of David Faniyi, who is also the chief writer and co-producer. The title track appears here in two mixes, the "Urban Contemporary" mix with its typical gospel hip-hop call and response style and much urgency. For my money, the "R&B Dance Mix" does it for me more as it better suits the song - very smooth. Elsewhere things slow down for "Thank U Lord" which is somewhat so-so, with some slight vocal dissonance in one or two places. Finally we have another slow ballad and big production number, which could really do with a Hammond organ to these ears, but which does feature some really tasty guitar playing. Overall this is quite promising, even though it doesn't really tread any significant new gospel ground.

As for me the cd is very catching, filled with energy, I have had the privillage for seening them minister live and boy were they it. I think this is just a fortaste for what to expect from up and coming christain artist. I think every song on the CD will minister to each individual leaving a tasteful feel to their spirits. I must say I do not agree with the comment about vocal dissonance, I had to listen to the CD and just can not place a finger on it. All in all this CD is a must not only for your collection but for your spirit.

This CD is very contemporary and can appeal to both the young and old. I have had the the opportunity to the group sing live both in London and outside London and wow their songs rock!!!!!!!!! I must say they have a lot of energy and except you are not physically handicapped, you will not be able to stay on your seat when they sing live.Definitely a CD to get hold of as it is is both uplifting and inspirational and I hope an album is coming soon.
