There's something very interesting about a worship album with a D M boot on the cover, especially when the boot is on the excellent Maggi Dawn. Over the past couple of years, CCM dudes have been turning out some excellent worship albums, whilst worship leaders (notably Noel Richards) have worked hard at making worship a bit more beefy, but all along this lady has been uniquely somewhere in between, writing inspired contemporary praise and worship. The album is stripped back to a musical minimum (with Maggie and Andy Cross providing all the instrumentation) so Maggi's beautiful voice is given all the room it needs to deliver the powerful lyrics. Guest vocalists Dave Perry and Richard Nicholson (aka Billy Penn's Brother) add to the atmosphere and passion of this brilliant disc. Standout track must be "I Will Wait"...Ooooh! It's so good! It's time this sister was shifting albums by the lorry-load 'cause once again her music, her vocals, her lyrics, her attention to doctrine, her talent and her album cover prove that Maggi Dawn can fill the shoes of any of the guys doing worship.
