Long time Keaggy buffs, of which I'm one, who've long been bemused by the guitar Maestro's somewhat erratic albums have been hoping that his delightful 60's sounding "Sunday's Child" was the start of more consistent things and so it proves to be. On this new set the same co-producer Lynn Nichols (the rootsy Steve Taylor side kick), the same session musos (Rick Cua on bass, Mike Mead on kit) and the same "live" studio sound full of energy and a sense of joyful camaraderie connect to produce a delightful album. The songs are good as well, full of humable hooks, Phil sings with more confidence than of old while those stunning axe ids, sometimes recreating early 70's melodic rock memories, sometimes surging on into more contemporary territory are a joy to the ear.

This project seem musically relevant even after all these years. Every track is well written and recorded. I would make it a must for every worship leader. Actually, I would make most every Keaggy recording a prerequisite. The title track is a masterful combination of music and lyric complemented by soothing strings and warm melody. One of my favorite Keaggy releases start to finish. Every song is worth exploring.

Good review. Maybe I'd give it a nine. Just listening to it now on Spotify after misplacing my old cassette. A very good album.
