This is the album which has taken the Aussie rockers into the big league in America's CCM scene and also established Steve Taylor (yep, the Chagall Guevara man) as a big Christian music producer (of course, we hip Brits have been saying the man's a genius for years). The band have still retained tinges of their early influences, a touch of indie, a bit of power pop, but now it's all focused and spits enough fire to satisfy rad rockers while being radio friendly enough to get maximum US exposure. Dig the oh-so-catchy title track or how they transform the old chorus "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus". Quality rock good enough to bring home the Doves. This album improves with every play. A fine rock set.
