There was a time when praise and worship albums seemed to be seriously damaging my spiritual life. As editor and chief reviewer of a Christian music magazine every month I was faced with a formidable wedge of mushy peas worship albums which seemed to suck me into a torpa. It's spiritually confusing to be bored silly by songs supposed to be drawing me closer to God. But suddenly a resounding Praaaiiise God! reverberates around the cupboard Cummings calls an office. For at last all kinds of unexpected praise and worship delights are coming onto the Christian bookshop CD racks. Like this nine caret beauty. It helps that you've got a church stuffed full of pop, CCM and black gospel talents like Kensington Temple. But it still needed a deft touch, and producer Les Moir gives it just that, to get all that awesome singing talent - David Grant, Nanette Welmans and seemingly a good chunk of LCGC past and present - and channel it into such a spirit uplifting praise celebration. The vocal arrangements (by David Grant and Lawrence Johnson) are faultless, the choice of songs inspired and I'll be praising God with this album for years to come.
