Belfast-based Liz went to Nashville to record this album and the quality of production and musicianship shows from the opening chords of "Rain Down Righteousness" to the strident bonus track hidden at the end. The piano lines are beautifully understated and counterpoint Liz's rich vocal lines along with the judicious use of percussion and Chester Thompson's wonderful drums on the occasional track. Both the Celtic hymns included here, "Be Thou My Vision" and "When I Survey" are both tastefully arranged but have been recorded so many times before it is very difficult to do anything new or different with them other than showcase Liz's voice. The self-written songs tend display a much softer side to her voice, particularly the lilting title track, and give the album a very pleasant, gentle Celtic feel.
