One of the most unexpected comebacks in Christian music -after all it has been seven years since Ulf Christiansson and his fellow Swedish rockers pioneered Christian metal in Europe with a series of hugely influential albums. Now they return supporting Petra no less, and release this to my ears exceedingly interesting album. The team have decided to leave the musically cramped waters of metal/heavy rock and have instead taken in a new set of influences, a touch of U2, a pinch of indie and produced an album of dense, turbulent, billowing rock - stunning when one considers there were no overdubs -just music full of passion, guts and heartfelt conviction. Ulf was always an excellent singer and here he surpasses himself. Rock buffs young and geriatric should check this one out.
