I saw this band at Impact '94 and was seriously impressed, as they lead a crowd in worship with some zinging pop rock praise (not dissimilar to DKF). Unfortunately, this 4-song tape shows another dimension of the band, four pop gospel originals which, at least as performed here, lack either the passion, drive (and drum sound) of gutsy rock or the slick hook-laden catchiness of radio-friendly pop. More work in the studio lads and lasses and it could all fall together though on what I saw I'd say your future lies as a high-powered praise band.
