Pure-Eh! are musical ministers, not simply a Christian band who put an occasional 'J' word into their lyrics but a band genuinely seeking through worship and evangelism to serve God wherever he sends them. This is, by my reckoning, Pure-Eh's third album and a coherent musical style is at last developing for these Dorset musicianaries. The opener features an infectious R&B groove but most of the cuts here demonstrate their strength, gentle melodic pop like the haunting ballad "Water To Wine" or a little blast of blues rock on "Tongues Of Fire" to add bite to the musical proceedings. Gordon Clowrey has an easy-on-the-ear pop voice able to handle a melodic ballad and an up tempo groove while. Phil Muir is an excellent guitarist able to riff funkily, step on the effects peddle or add lyrical George Benson-style lines behind the vocalist. The Church needs ministries like Pure-Eh's and if your taste leans towards fluidly arranged pop with clear worshipful lyrics you should get a cheque off to Gillingham.
