Nearly an hour's worth of praise and worship music, the purpose of which (apart from the obvious one of exalting the name of the Almighty in song) is to help fund the Pentecostal Churches In The UK Millennium Project, the provision of deloxification facilities at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre. A lot of the songs are originals written by the members of the worship group; these are well written and contain all the right words with none of the clich├ęs and derivative tendencies of some I've heard lately. The recording quality is satisfactory, although occasionally the vocals seem a little bit down in the mix. The singers include Colin and Carol Owen, and their technique rubs off on the others, and all concerned turn in good performances. Also, it's value for money: 14 tracks and not a danker amongst them. A worthy release for a worthy cause.
