This album was once briefly available on Furious? (Yep, THOSE guys are playing on it). Canadian Jeff is one of the new breed of worship leaders. His musical genre is not easy to place as the first half of the album sees beautiful melodic tunes such as "Let Me Sing" and "Remember" (the song known to many through recent Soul Survivor festivals). However, the overall sound changes halfway through the album where it gains more of an edge not unlike Steve Taylor. "Prayer Of Need, Part 1" is even reminiscent of REM in their 'Automatic For The People' era. Jeff journeyed to Littlehampton where the man of many talents, Martin Smith,produced, and three of the four other Delirious? lads played on the session making the overall feel similar to the early Cutting Edge tapes. In the main, the album, despite its shifts in sound and mood, shows Jeff to be a highly talented singer/songwriter.
