Mark Jones is a worship leader and songwriter at Trinity Episcopal Church, Westhill - an evangelical/charismatic church in North-East Scotland. This is their first release and is a collection of six worship songs that would be at home in any lively congregation. Although production-wise it suffers a bit in the budget department you can look past the slight "demo feel" and find well constructed songs with very encouraging lyrics. This is all a tad edgier than the usual British worship song collection and in places reminded me of The Verve. The high point for me is the opener "Be Exalted" with "How Can It Be?" coming a close second. If you're looking for something fresh or some new material to pitch at your worship leader this one is a good bet.
