Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, otherwise known as Plumb, has released her first full album since 2009's 'Beautiful History' and in doing so has demonstrated once and for all that she is one of the finest singer/songwriters in Christendom, possessing a beautiful soprano voice which is both wistfully poignant and passionately expressive. In recent years Plumb has been discovered by the EDM community and no doubt in the coming months there will be tracks from this stunning set remixed to feature in the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Play charts. But above all it is Tiffany the lyricist who keeps the listener coming back to these honest and eloquent songs. Both "Unlovable" and "I Don't Deserve You" resonate with life experience, the former particularly contains extremely powerful images ("So we say we love Jesus/But didn't we kill him/'Cause we thought he was different/I bet he was saying. . .Why me?"). The Prodigal Son-inspired "I Don't Deserve You" was written directly to her young son Oliver. The picture of God's unconditional love shines through ("I don't deserve your love/But you give it to me anyway/Can't get enough/You're everything I need/And when I walk away/You take off running and come right after me/It's what you do/And I don't deserve you"). The title track of this album has already been a major hit and there will surely be others to follow. Unquestionably a creative tour-de-force.
