This is the debut album from a London-based singer, songwriter and worship leader who has penned songs such as "All Hail Jesus" and "What Love Is This" for Vineyard and Maranatha. Here he offers a showcase of songs he has written over the years of which some are already in use in UK churches. They have stripped down arrangements here with "You're Sending Me", featuring that globe-trotting South African worship man Brenton Brown. It is one of the strongest tracks on the album as the collaboration with Brown offers a more mature sounding vocal than featured on other songs. The lyrics of the song "Undivided" ask God to take his rightful place is a track that shows the focus of this album and the heart of the artist. Unfortunately, the talent in the writing of the lyrics and arrangements of some songs, such as "I Worship You Now", surpasses the quality of the vocals.
