A slightly odd idea to kick off your own imprint, recording new versions of songs originally visited years ago. But the gospel veteran emphatically knows how to have church and all the special guests, including former Commissioned collaborator Keith Staten, Marcus Cole and Darrin Patterson, plus "the anointed voices of the future" Joann Rosario, the Singletons and Pam Kenyon M Donald. The album has its moments (main one for me being Donald's "I Anoint Myself") and the re-working of old Commissioned hits will no doubt appeal to fans of Fred's older material. However, most of it is good rather than great and the lead guitarist did one too many Brian May impersonations for my liking.
