Ikon are a group on a mission, a mission to evangelise the dancing world and with this album they certainly have a chance at hitting the spot. 'Global Transmission' contains both vocal dance tracks and some serious stomping hardcore. The first two tracks really get the adrenaline pumping and certainly aren't for the faint hearted, but the rest of the album lacks the vitality of the opening tracks. There are obvious Josh Wink influences in this album, notably "What Are We Looking For?", which rings of "Higher State Of Consciousness", and draws parallels with commercial dance music. 'Global Transmission1 certainly opens up evangelistic doors and though it has glitches it is accessible to major dance fans.

I stumbled across this CD in an op shop, I absolutely love it, is there anything else like this. Before I was saved I was a hardcore dance party girl, and still quite like this music, but unfortunately now listen to more contemporary christian music cause I have never come across anything like this album....I know it is 1996, so is there anything more recent and like this around??
