A generously filled CD (12 tracks, running time of nearly an hour) of self-penned and competently crafted worship music. Linda did all the production and the instruments herself and with assistance from Carol-Ann Grant on backing vocals, the result is very acceptable. Styles range from up tempo bouncy to gentle and reflective, but one track stands out, so much so that as soon as I heard it, it had to go on the UCB Europe playlist. "Jesus, Source of All Beginnings" is an exceptional worship ballad, the lyrics are simply beautiful ("Lord, hear my cry: I yearn to kiss your perfect heart, I know I've found the pearl of greatest price, all the wealth of Heaven in one life"), and Linda puts it over with skill and plenty of passion. One of the best songs I've heard for yonx, and deserves 10 squares all on its own. If Linda can write a few more like that, she might end up going places.
