Producers Dan and Matt Weeks have assembled a batch of pretty strong children's songs, including several from Nick & Becky Drake, not to mention items from Hillsong's Joel Houston, Tim Hughes ("My Jesus, My Lifeline") and Nigel 'Great Big God' Hemming. Vocalist on several of the tracks is Becky Drake (remember Coastal Dune?) while the keyboards and programming of Mark Edwards are well up to the mark. All-in-all, a pretty effective slice of children's ministry, while the bonus CD ROM features sketches, sheet music and MP3 backing tracks. The highlight is the Nicki Rodgers video of "Your Love", although it is parcelled with videos of two guys who are considering cleaning their teeth with a toilet brush.
