If you're into grown up music, you know, the kind of music where musicianship is more valuable than the hype, where people play real instruments, etc, etc, then Foundation should be up your street, especially if you like something with a bit of jazz in the mix. Built around the fluid guitar playing and singing of husband and wife team David and Terri Heymann, this is excellent stuff. Terri's a bit of a jazz diva at heart and the band create plenty of space for her to demonstrate she has the chops. But this is a whole band effort and the overall vibe here is fresh, experimental and real. Best described as acoustic jazz, the highlights include the poppier testimony song, "All I Ever Wanted" and the groovy "Turn Around". My faves have to be the breezy acoustic understated "Reconcilliation" and the funk workout "You Need Him" with its delicious bouncy bass line. Great jazz vibe, plenty of masterful musical moments and lyrics that will encourage you - what more do you want from a Christian album
