The musical diversity on this album, originally released in the USA in 2001, is clearly evident. From the pipe instrumental prelude to the gospel feel of "You Are Worthy" to the upbeat "Salvation", there's definitely a range of material on offer here. It is clear to see that a lot of hard work and arrangement has gone into this release. The London Session Orchestra plays a major role on many of the tracks, giving a strong kind of medieval aura in places. There is no doubting that the music on show here is talented and passionate with Michael's strong voice complimenting the worshipful lyrics. On the inlay card, there are insights into the general gist of each song, apart from the instrumentals, and meanings of certain terminology. This album doesn't have any really bad points but doesn't have any brilliant moments either. Still, Card's fans will be glad that Integrity Music are now distributing his recent catalogue in the UK.
