Remember Friends First? Their We See A New Africa' has to be one of the best and most successful Christian albums never to have received a follow-up. A multi-racial aggregation singing "prophetic choruses in an African music genre", Friends First struck a chord of hope with many in the church. Now years on, the driving forces behind that album and vision, Mallie du Plessis and J B Arthur take up a project they'd begun even before 'We See A New Africa' and this album is the result. And does it break new worship music ground in opening up a whole subcontinent of cultural expression? Well, no. In fact, its smooth, seamless performances of new South African composed worship choruses, pleasant enough, but with no real difference from dozens of slick American praise and worship albums.
