After seven years as a successful CCM duo, album number five for Scott and Christine Dente (aka Out Of The Grey) comes following some time out from louring to concentrate on their songwriting. Well worth the trouble in my estimation - the result was 10 powerful, mostly God-orientated, 'relationship' songs, revolving around themes of faithfulness ("No Leaving", "Constant"), openness/honesty ("Come Clean") and trust ("My God You Arc", "Prove It"), most of which arc-endowed with a freshness of style which should delight their audiences. Putting the production in the capable hands of the ubiquitous Nashville CCM maestro Brown Bannister was another big plus - the chunky feel of "Sec Inside", with big guitar chords aplenty, has much in common with Brown's other work (particularly Carolyn Arends' recent album "Feel Free') and perhaps holds even more appeal than some of the duo's Charlie Peacock-produced output. Christian Dente's voice is, of course, as distinctive as ever and with a bunch of the usual Nashville suspects (Messrs Darken.'Kennedy, Madeira, McPherson, Sloas et al) handling the backing with all their usual panache, it seems sound advice to 'See Inside'.
