The tone for this straightforward collection of love songs to the Lord is simplicity. Here the Midlands-based gospel worship man takes his uncomplicated approach to songwriting to present 12 tracks and 53 minutes of music in an engaging approach. The style is predominantly gospel but with hints of reggae and suggestions of pop aided by the occasional guitar solo. Abraham is responsible for all lead vocals (adequate voice without being outstanding) and is backed by male (Isong) and female voices. The majority of tracks are up-tempo and there is overall a strong sense of joy and fun pervading the collection. The songs themselves probably have more to offer than is drawn out of them here; with stronger and more imaginative and varied arrangements needed to bring out all they have to offer.
