As someone in no danger of winning a medal for devotion to praise and worship albums, I approached this with some trepidation. Nice surprise to find a clear, sweet voice parading a collection of songs which display depth of content, quality of composition and musical expertise. Debby has shared in several Vineyard albums and this, her solo album, carries all the professionalism associated with such musicians as Jeff Lams, Hadley Hockensmith and Marty Walsh - quality control ensured. Several songs are by John Wimber but the real gems come from Andy Park, particularly his superb title song "Only You". The musical category is generally a conventional typically Californian mellow pop, with subtle country flavouring, but never bland or boring. The emphasis is on Debby's delightful voice, which coaxes the best from some good material. A better tape than most of its kind.
