The worship leader at House Of Praise Church in London, Femi presents a full-on funky gospel worship album which definitely gets your feet moving! The first single "Bought" with its driving bass line and uplifting horns sets the scene beautifully to what is a high octane Afro gospel funk which refuses to let the listener go until the last track. The title song is tight with a capitol T, and like on all songs, Femi's voice shows its versatility with the worship leader sometimes sounding a bit like Fela Kuti. The pace does slow a little in places; "You Alone" is a simple but highly effective praise song, while "We've Come To Praise" achieves the same driven by its throbbing funk bass. This is an outstanding debut album.
