RATING 6 6 6 6 6 6
LABEL: Kingsway

Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Two oldies reissued on a twofer from the church which for more than a decade was Britain's biggest congregation. 'Our God Is Good' stems from 1991 and is stuffed full of well known names like David and Carrie Grant and Nu Colours' Lawrence Johnson and Fay Simpson, though it's the (uncredited) lead vocalist on Van Morrison's "Wherever God Shines His Light" which turns in the best vocal performance. After the soulful star guest pyrotechnics of 'Our God Is Good', 'Latter Rain' (from 1995) sounds more like a run of the mill praise and worship album, though it does have a more naturally live sound. This one too has some snappy Richard Lewis originals, rather than the Kendricks, Prosch, Bowater covers that dominated its predecessor.
