Ian Yates has long been one of the most refreshing and heart-stirring worship leaders and songwriters on the UK scene and 'DNA' with its intriguing mix of rock and dancefloor rhythms is up there with his best work. Standouts abound. "Fulness" is a radio-friendly cut with something of a Killers vibe to it while the worshipful "Innocent", with its poignant reminder of Christ the sacrificial lamb has a haunting melody. "Spinning" reminds us that the Lord's love "is like a tidal wave" and indeed several songs on this superior modern worship set take you again to that place where his love can be experienced. 7Core Music have put out some fine albums since their launch. This is one of their best.

More than an album of songs this is a soundtrack realigning us to our original DNA. We are made in the image of God, designed to change the world, born of incorruptible seed. The message throughout DNA is of God's love, grace and goodness from freedom to innocence, living in the fullness and enjoying our relationship with the Godhead. DNA is full of positive, upbeat, and life changing songs, not neglecting the challenges and questions of life, but declaring that there is a hope. Despite the struggles and pain we can face, God is with us and is always faithful.
