In my capacity as music manager for UCB Europe, not only do I get to listen to all the great music that's out there, I also have to listen to all the cheap and cheerful home-brewed albums that people send in, hoping that I'll give them airtime. I always tell them that as we use Christian music as an outreach tool, the material that does get airtime has to be technically at least as good as, if not better than, the stuff on mainstream radio; the message is not enough, the song must have top quality song writing, performance and production. Sadly, this CD falls far short. Dreary programmed arrangements of dull songs, sung very badly, recorded appallingly with much distortion and levels all over the place, and presented in a cheap package. This is not the way to seek to extend the Kingdom; Malcolm is obviously very enthusiastic, otherwise he wouldn't have gone to the trouble of creating this, but I wonder if he has any idea of what good contemporary Christian music is, and how it should sound. If I could lock him in Studio Three at UCB Europe for a day or two, he might get the message.
