Reviewed by Dave Brassington

The recently formed five man vocal band which performed a year or so ago in London, made a debut recording with two live DVDs from their concerts in San Antonio, Texas, called 'Better Day' and 'Reunited'. This single CD is a compilation featuring 17 tracks from the two DVDs. It opens with the very lively "Love Like I'm Leaving" and also includes the "Better Day" title track. It also includes guest performances from The Isaacs who reprise The Brown's big hit "The Three Bells" and a new song "I Will Praise Him". Jason Crabb solos on "Daystar (Shine Down On Me)" backed by the Gaither Vocal Band, and another solo track is the classical "Nessun Dorma" powerfully sung by group member David Phelps. Yet if I had to pick a favourite from this excellent album it would be the very evangelistic song of proclamation "Alpha And Omega". Recommended, but I do think that the DVDs are better.
