The second 'Family' worship concept album from the Ichthus Fellowship offers a varied smattering of musical styles on one album. It is good to hear songs that reflect something of human suffering and sorrow as well as the usual songs of triumph that we get bombarded with, and Dave Morris delivers "A Time To Mourn" (based on texts from Ecclesiastes) with plenty of passion. Some cool and catchy numbers like "You Are The Best" give the kids a chance to join in the fun (it's okay to say 'fun' when we are talking about worship, isn't it?). Old Brucey Pont knocks the whole thing together technically with his usual ease, making the whole thing a very tasty sonic treat. A family concept is a very difficult thing to come up with, mainly because some songs just don't sound as if they would work right through the age ranges... Ichthus are trying to break new ground in this field and doing well with tapes and resource books (see book reviews) and at least we aren't getting another remix/re-recording of done-to-death classics. Well done Ichthus... this is a mile better than most of the stuff that lands on my door from across the pond!
