A mixed blessing recorded at Chapel Lane studios which definitely works in places but falls flat (literally) elsewhere -check out the backing vocals on "I Will Worship". Ouch! Some of this is well played if not exceptionally originally in execution, the only time this album really takes off is with their rendition of everyone's current fave "My Jesus (Shout To The Lord)" which features a fine vocal from Lynsey Grant. She has a beautiful voice and I am left wondering why she doesn't sing more of the lead parts since poor old Leon sounds pale by comparison, her backing vocals continually overshadow his leads. However, what he lacks in vocal dexterity, Leon makes up in writing skills. The original compositions work well with the title track pushing along nicely and "Still You Notice Me" is a tender stirring worshipful ballad. For a low budget, these guys have achieved a great deal but to really kick it in the future Leon, keep writing the songs but you really have to get out of the vocal spotlight and leave Lynsey to let rip - now that would be a worship experience worth hearing!
