This is a varied collection of soul-tinged pop material ranging from slow ballads to uptempo dance numbers, competently produced by a team which includes Michael Omartian, and performed with verve and considerable vocal range by the artist. It is not overtly Christian in content (the final track "My Life Is In Your Hands" withstanding) but what ultimately sets this album apart from most others in this genre are the songs themselves. There are strong melodies, instantly catchy hook lines and the standard of songwriting throughout is impressive. Like its predecessor it will probably cross over pop in the States. Highlights are the opener "Just You", "Tell Me Where It Hurts" (NOT a meditation on dental surgery) and "Mission Of Love". A welcome addition to any pop collection.
