This is Baloche's 12th collection of songs spanning a 20 year period and those familiar with Paul's work will have a good idea about what to expect. The 13 tracks here provide just over an hour of music, with the pattern for most of the material following that of his recent huge songs - into the song very quickly, with straightforward and grand lyrical ideas helping to build swiftly to a big guitar-driven chorus. Some variation and subtlety is offered by the gentler "Your Blood Ran Down" and "Just Say" but on the whole this is classic Baloche. A considerable amount of collaboration has taken place with this offering, with songwriting credits being shared with Lincoln Brewster, Ben Fielding and Jason Ingram amongst others and performance credits for Ingram, Fielding, Kathryn Scott and others. It is the title track which is most likely to be the next "Hosanna" and be sung by churches far and wide, though whether it will be embraced by the Church to quite the same extent remains to be seen.

My favourite track is "Loved By You", but this is an album with so many good tracks it is hard to choose the best one. This is one of those albums where every track is quality. The lyrics are so important in that they need to be based on truth. This is the case with this album.
