Again, a US worship recording that sounds like a Disney soundtrack. Here is another slick recording from Hosanna! Music, sounding very much like the rest of them. Big orchestra, heavily-accented choir singing old songs with the odd new one slipped in here and there. The cover of "God Is Good" is particularly embarrassing, which is unfortunate because it is linked to a very touching story. There are musical medleys interspersed with Mr Moen's voice, and a couple more testimonies from others. If this were produced on a level with some of the contributions sent into this magazine by hard-working, gifted and talented musicians with a lot less money, then it would score no squares for content. As it is, it is saved only by the level of production, and even then only just manages to warrant this amount of space.
