This features eight songs from the '4s For Jesus' stream at Stoneleigh 2000. Anybody associating the phrase "praise and worship for young children" with one of those predictable kids albums where squeaky voiced kiddywinkers swill corny anthems over cheesy keyboard backings will be blown away by these tracks. In fact, the opener "I Believe" with its gutsy guitar drive wouldn't have been out of place on a Paul Oakley album (not altogether surprising as the guitar and vocalist on this project is Mark Cooper from Paul Oakley's band). Not that this is teenage praise, masquerading as a kid's album. There's a great song about Daniel ("Cool Dude Daniel"), which will get any kid grooving while "Nebuchadnezzar" has a tasty guitar intro and a snazzy jazz rhythm. Side two gives you the backing tracks. Thoroughly recommended.
