This recording is a combination of good singing, good lyrics and great production. Julia Bradley addresses difficult life issues, from loneliness to adultery, and responds with a strong evangelistic edge. The tracks are generally of a laid back tempo, very easy listening. The lyrics are good, but personally the track that moved me was "Song For Mike" which is a piano instrumental - the high point of the entire album, and it left me wanting to hear more. Music is such a powerful medium, it can often say more without any lyrics. 'Against The Tide' will hold most of its appeal with those 25 and upwards, who enjoy evangelistic/ministry songs in a slightly more contemporary style.
