Part of the Abundant Life Church ministry based in Bradford, I Am Future are well known in worship circles for their work as RPM. Now with a new moniker they declare themselves as a "worship movement, liberating and strengthening young people". Listening to the disc you quickly gain a sense of urgency communicated in a way that reaches this generation. Right from the opener "Freedom Never Felt So Good", the band firmly nail their colours to the mast stating "I believe in the God of love and liberty" over a driving rock beat. The band is also rather good on the gentler tracks as well, "Be Glorified "is pure worship, "Great The Name" glorifies the name of Jesus, with its anthem style chorus and Coldplay style guitar licks. "Sound Of Praise", one of the few tracks on the album not written by Mark Harvie, is an example of praise reaching octane levels. I Am Future represent Jesus in an exciting, relevant way to young (and not so young) people and deserve the attention of the worshipping Church.
