Lifezone is a children's ministry from The Rock Church in York and this whole album crackles with super high energy. Although it's aimed at five to 11 year olds it isn't at all patronizing or cringe-worthy. All 15 songs are written and sung by Danny Sewell, the children's minister at the Rock Church. He writes clever, inventive lyrics, giving a clear, uncompromised Christian message. The ideas are simple and to the point, like "Give A Load Of Love Away" or "Let's Get Fruity". The whole rock ethos of the project works really well with plenty of vintage-style guitar solos, neat bass and funky drum fills. These songs must sound really exciting live and full volume. I love the wild and hairy guitar breaks from Stephen Craven in songs like "Superhero" while the witty Easter number "The Chocolate Song" and two Christmas tracks stand out. Overall, a far better children's project than many of those saccharine-sweet albums the Americans seem to enjoy.
