Recorded and mixed at the Amblecote Christian Centre Studios, this eight-track self-composed album has a mixture of styles; poppy, up tempo one minute, melodic and ambient the next, and each track shows some facet of Isong's love for his Saviour. Titles such as "Lord I Give My Life", "Jesus I Love You", "The Name I Love To Praise" show exactly where he's coming from. The songs themselves are quite rea­sonable, but the big problem is Isong's voice. He has a strong accent, which occasionally makes it difficult to understand the lyrics, and he struggles sometimes to keep on pitch. The vocal problems sadly negate the otherwise acceptable musical merit of the songs, and overall I can't honestly recommend this. Sorry.
