This is Netherlands-based Nicole Angela Pacifico's first CD recorded earlier this year at ICC studios in Eastbourne. Obviously a creative person, describing herself as an artist, composer and singer, Nicole has worked with the likes of Neil Costello, Mike Haughton and Mark Prentice to produce this collection of laid back pop songs. The 10 songs on the album are all inspired directly by Scripture with the lyrics based on verses such as Ephesians 3 ("Christ's Love For Us") and Galatians 5 ("The Fruits Of The Spirit") which naturally lend themselves to be used in times of worship. Musically there are some lovely arrangements for the saxophone and lead guitar, although some of the songs, such as opener "A Day Shall Come" do sound a bit dated. Nicole's voice has a jazzy, slightly soulful, tone to it, unfortunately some of the songs don't seem to do her voice justice and I found myself longing for more tracks like the laid back jazz of "In The Last Days" or "The Armour Of God" where voice, material and accompaniment really gel. All in all, Nicole's desire to see God's glory shine through her music is refreshing and with the aid of excellent musicianship there will be many who are blessed through listening to this album.
