Nik and Emma are greatly in demand, working as they do for the Salvation Army training worship leaders as well as being involved in worship at Spring Harvest, Easter People and Stoneleigh. This album has been put together for The Rattling which is a team drawing on the Ezekiel 37 Valley of Dry Bones episode to help people grow in their relationship with God. Produced by Patfish's Nathan Fellingham and featuring the likes of Stuart Townend, Martin Cooper and Lou Fellingham, there's no denying the quality of the sound, or the accessibility and simplicity of the arrangements, but I found the material a bit flat and uninspiring, as were the two lead vocals, despite words of recommendation from worship leaders such as Paul Oakley and Eoghan Heaslip on the sleeve. I'm sure Nik and Emma have a valuable ministry, but this album just doesn't stand out from the many others in its genre.

This is a fantastic album - creative and inspiring. With lyrics full of truth and depth. This has helped me enormously in my walk with God.
We use several of these songs in my church - Bless the Lord - which I first heard in the Big Top at Spring Harvest, is excellent! Buy this album - you won't regret it!

This review is typical of the lazy jounalism found in the Christian scene. comments full of assumptions - implying that the quality of the recording is so good due to the input of familiar names is utter nonsense - whilst add. guitars and BV's have added to quality, the stunning musicianship of the main players and quality songwriting has been totally overlooked. This is an excellent album!
