Resurrection Band front man, Cross Rhythms columnist and all round good guy, this is Glenn Kaiser as you've never heard him before. Gone is the heavy rock sound of the Jesus rock veterans, welcome a more acoustic, guitar-based stuff of another time and place. The raw, uncluttered music bed provides a perfect counterbalance to a growling, rasping Mr Kaiser with attitude. Every burning issue buried deep in the questioning mind of this arch-commentator is released in a flurry of lyrical prose that demands attention. The Church gets in the neck on 'Deliver', one of my favourite tracks, and even the viciousness of contemporary pop music is given a roasting on 'Ya Don't Say'. But not everything is right in your face, particularly when Glenn adopts a more reflective pose on 'One More Step', an ambiguous love songs to his lovely wife, Wendy, and the Almighty. The album's blend of musical styles may confuse those who love to put musicians into nice little boxes, but just ignore the experts, crank up the volume and  you'll soon get a taste of the passion and heart of a man who definitely walks the talk.
