When lead singers of well known bands get to record solo albums the effect is often dissipated, the musical chemistry that made THAT voice and THOSE musos so appealing missing when the singer moves to new musical pastures. That is not the case with this set. Lou Fellingham has produced an album up there with the finest things Phatfish have ever released while the strength of songwriting and the intuitive togetherness of the accompaniments are perfect to show off the delicate wistfulness of Louise's appealing voice. The three opening cuts "O God Of Love", "Hard Pressed" and "Amazing Love" all sound like they'd be winners on pop radio as well as songs that would make our hearts soar in worship gatherings. Another heartening example to demonstrate that some of the best worship leaders in today's church are ladies.
