What does it say about contemporary worship when some of its key proponents feel compelled to base a compilation on the theme of God? References to the Trinitarian nature of God dominate and the message is well and truly received by the fourth track. Having said that some may find the theology of these songs is overly simplistic and may provoke even the chronically hymn-phobic to long for Charles Wesley. Apart from Geraldine Latty's irritating "Dance Of Our God", this is a good quality collection and Lou Fellingham, Matt Redman, Cathy Burton and the other friends who provide the vocals here. Highlights include Martin Layzell's rendition of "Holy Father" but best of the bunch is awarded to Chris Hanley's interpretation of Kendrick's "We Believe". Alan Rose provides electric guitar reminiscent of the Knight Rider theme giving the 20 year old chestnut an unexpected new lease of life. Nathan Fellingham has a hand in some of the writing and his masterful production brings coherence to the whole project.

Both the musicianship and the production throughout the album is superb, and the modern spin on old classics, such as Kendrick’s ‘We Believe’, is nothing short of genius.
This uplifting album is sure to stay at the top of my CD collection for a long time!

This is one of the best compilation albums I have heard in a long time. The variety of songs will appeal to a wide audience of all ages. Each song is packed full of solid biblical truth and showcases some of today’s most talented Christian songwriters. As a listener this album has helped me to gain a much deeper understanding of the complex and often confusing subject of the Trinity.

if you realise, christian music should be about worship to god now how things sound. the album is brilliant, the songs are full of truth. if i want to go clubbing, i wouldnt want christian music on. at a pub, i want chilled out indie or rock, and when i want christian music, i would want this. it sounds great aswell, the musicmanship and quality of phatfish is second to none.
