Doug Horley is a phenomenon amongst kids' worship leaders, in that he is someone who can write music that appeals to kids and grown-ups alike. Two of his best songs are on this album, which is really a greatest hits package - the sublime anthemic "King Of Heaven", which still passes the Old Grey Prickle Test every time I hear it, and perhaps his best known song "We Want To See Jesus Lifted High", a perennial favourite at festivals, conferences and stadiums. In fact, the version of the song on this CD is the one recorded at Champion Of The World at Wembley Stadium in 1997, and it's the best cut I've heard. Doug is ably assisted by Vanessa Freeman, Louise Fellingham and his other half Belinda, and there are a couple of new songs mixed in with the classics. Recommended.
