I have never yet heard anything other than good music from these very popular Southern gospel harmonisers and whilst on this new release one cannot fault the quality of the vocal harmonies and the impeccable orchestration, having played this CD several times sadly I found it rather disappointing. Partly I think it lacks a rather top quality song. It is also now some time since they lost that fabulous bass singer Tim Duncan, who was in the group when they performed so memorably in London some years ago, and who in my opinion gave the group a bit more of an outstanding "bite". Apart from "It's Good To See The Sun", which was more an exercise in vocal gymnastics than a good song, there is nevertheless much to enjoy like the opening track, "One Of These Mornings". "Love Walked In" is also very pleasant. "Angels Everywhere" would be my pick as the best track and "A Soldier Fighting To Go Home" is moving. But, all in all, there are better releases from the group.
