Long in the tooth devotees of Britain's modern worship scene will, of course, know that Lou's been a favourite since her days with Phatfish. 'Made For You' is a live set of 11 new-to-the-public songs. The two true rockers on this album, "Life Giver" and "Keeper Of My Heart", are the real spice that makes the album click. The former begins with a fuzz guitar that no one would have ever expected while the latter ends with a guitar solo that is certainly appreciated on a "worship" album. The song "Jesus You're With Us" is a synth building track that shows Fellingham's Brit pop influences while also featuring some of her best lyrics as she sings "In the empty space, in the desperate place/God is calling you to him." The album feels choppy in its influences as well as quality until you get to the last track called "Worthy Is The Saviour". It brings the more formal worship songs and the rock-leaning tracks into one cohesive whole that ties the album up neatly. Though the second half of the album is the obvious standout, the whole record works well as a live worship/synth rock set.
