Okay admit it, with a name like Desert Rain, you thought this was going to be some hair band metal group! But you'd be so so wrong! Texas-based Desert Rain are two couples dedicated to music ministry who have created an acoustic driven CD of powerful songs that connect both musically and lyrically. At one edge, there's the gentle prayerful "Ocean Of Life" and "Faithful" which wash over the listener and restore. At the other edge, there's the declaration of the acoustic pop "Praise Be To God" and the frankly surprisingly rock'n'roll of "Now That I Know You" where Lori Perez seems to be enjoying being a bit of a rock chick! The album ends with "Desert Rain" which seems to sum up the ministry of the band, bringing refreshment to thirsty souls through their anointed music. This is gorgeous music with song after song strong on melody and inspiration.
