Don't know whether the band's break up was planned when this compilation was muted but it is certainly a useful, intriguing and on the whole highly enjoyable retrospective look at Britain's leading pop praise team. The obvious weakness of the project is the sheer naffness of the band's pre-Sue Rinaldi recordings so the compilers have overcome this by offering only two songs from 'In Celebration Praise' and none from the dire 'People Of Power' which makes the title a little questionable but is decidedly easier on the ear. The bulk of the songs here come from 'The winner', 'Song For A New Generation' and 'I Will Speak Out' with two excellent pop gospellers "In The Day Of The Lord" and "Revival!" previously unreleased. If you're after some neatly produced pop gospel or a moment of a very special ministry, get a copy.
