Hailing from Australia and signed to the long dead Benson record label, I first discovered this band on a singles compilation that the label sent to media. Let's face it, any band called Noisy Little Sunbeams is worth investigating! I was drawn by the catchy pop sound of the single "Always In Heaven" but the rest of the album is thumping '90s rock with a helping of rap vocals thrown in. Other highlights include a manic cover version of Bryan Adams' "Kids Wanna Rock", the funk rock "Do You Wanna?" and the seriously in your face "Turn Or Burn". Delivering punchy uncompromised Christian rock, Noisy Little Sunbeams deserved to be more successful with this album. I'm guessing that Benson just didn't know how best to sell a band that was so wildly eclectic.
