With this double CD from the London-based pioneer in fusing the gospel (black majority churches) and praise and worship cultures making Cross Rhythms Best Albums of 2006 list you would expect an album of quality and outstanding music, and that is what the listener here is given. With assistance from praise and worship notaries Matt Redman and Ron Kenoly this only helps to add to the listening experience crammed as it is with memorable hooks, some tight R&B production and a vibe that sometimes recalls Andrae Crouch. As usual Robinson and Nu Image are competent playing many styles of music from the Caribbean-tinged "Sweet Jesus" and the haunting sax intro on "Halleljujah" to "You Are My Healer" giving testimony that God is still in the business of healing. Also Noel's guitar playing skills are given an airing most notably on "The Vltava". Two CDs worth the while to get acquainted with.
