To say that I was disappointed with this album would be an understatement. The concept is excellent - how God sees the family - and most of the songs are well thought out and put together. But unfortunately the whole thing comes across as slush! Average families aren't really like the one portrayed here are they? Well mine certainly isn't. It's the dialogues that most consistently take the enamel off the teeth, taking these out would have improved the album immeasurably. The musical playing is good in slick MOR style and some of the lyrics are thought provoking. I liked "Elohim, El-shaddai", and also liked the thoughts portrayed in "A Mother's Love" which will no doubt strike a chord with most mums. But the mawkish sentimentality prevalent elsewhere makes this album almost unlistenable.
