Erik and Tami Eskelund are residents of Florida, and give us a dozen smartly crafted pop opuses (opii?) in a classy and polished pop style. Five songs are on the UCB Europe playlist, which gives an idea of the quality of the material: the thoughtful "I Know", confronting those who would rubbish the Christian faith with the evidence of a changed life and a God-centred walk; "Like A Whisper", a gentle acoustic ballad, encouraging us to listen for God's voice; "Who Am I", a slab of bright and bouncy pop, reflecting on our insignificance compared to the greatness of God, yet he loves us just the same; "You're My Refuge", which is a bit of an anthem, using the recurring theme throughout the Psalms that God is someone we can turn to for protection, comfort and deliverance; and the title track, a song of encouragement, because just as the re-birth of nature in springtime follows the apparent lifelessness of winter, so a barren human life can be brought to life through the power of God. It's difficult to convey in mere words just how good this album is; superlatives could flow through my PC keyboard like Niagara Falls, yet the ultimate evidence would come only through listening to it. Take it from me, this is a cracker; production, singing and playing, as well as the songwriting, are first class, and I'd encourage you to get hold of this if you like smooth and meaningful pop music. Heartily recommended.
