I remember travelling with my children, feeling a little frustrated at listening to children's songs on repeat (which they clearly enjoyed) while longing for something more adult! This collection aims to address this parental problem, and up to the teenage years mostly achieves this fine balance. Nigel has directed worship teams at his Belfast church where he works as Worship Co-ordinator, and the 12 songs (and a new version of the title track) were mostly born from that position. The opener "Like A Telescope" is a great example, a contemporary mix of drum-driven music, thoughtful lyrics and an infectious chorus which sticks with you (and a children's choir for good measure!). "Seaside Rock" is a clever mix of rock'n'roll, jazz and lyrics comparing The Rock with crumbling seaside rock! Not everything works as well however, "Song For David" feels like it's aimed more at a younger age group with lyrics such as "David was a shepherd boy/He wasn't very tall". But overall this is a superb collection which addresses the problem faced by all generations!
