What goes up must come down, that's the law of gravity as the bruises on Sir Isaac Newton's head proved (not to mention the bruises on the apple!) but then Newton had never followed the career of Out Of The Grey. Their fourth album 'Gravity' simply proves that what goes up keeps on going up. Scott and Christine Dente, with Charlie Peacock again in the producer's chair, have done it again! From the gentle pop of the opener "Stay Close" through to the romantic feel of the erm...dreamy erm..."Dreaming Of April", this album is packed with so many goodies you'll get mugged by the music police on the way home from the shop. Christine's voice is perfection personified whether she's tackling a gentle "So We Never Got To Paris" or a raunchy "Hope In Sight". The production allows the music to breathe and it feels less cluttered than earlier albums. This is particularly pleasing because it allows Scott's astonishing guitar playing to come to the fore. The beautiful "When Love Comes To Life" looks at how the love of Christ completely transforms lives. "Bird On A Wire" looks at the pressured existence of those who choose to live their lives precariously balanced between opinions when it comes to matters of faith. Songs that are challenging but jargon free, full of grace but not sloppy, songs that you will be unashamed to play your unchurched friends. Get this and pray they tour next year!
