Johnsen is a visually impaired worship leader from Norway. His musical journey has taken him through the X Factor in Norway where he was a finalist. Now he's had the opportunity to record this debut worship album in Nashville for an American record label. The results are pleasant enough but in an era when the worship market is inundated with hundreds of projects and songs, a new artist has to have something very special to stand out from the crowd. 'All About Your Love' is easy on the ear with a soft pop production. But though it's competently produced, neither singer nor musicians seem to ever break a sweat and there's no song here to stop you in your tracks. The songwriting is okay but nothing original. Maybe it's because Johnsen writes in his second language or maybe it's because there's a penchant for generic songs these days but the album overall manages to pass me by without arresting me or engaging me in worship.
