RPM are the youth ministry of Bradford's famed megachurch Abundant Life Church. Now their debut EP was only so-so but now the band, under the canny leadership of Jonathan 'Jock' James, really kick in with a powerful modern worship set, bristling with energy. This album and its bonus DVD set out to give a real feel for what RPM is about. Musically their style is full on rock with unison vocals though there are a couple of quieter songs here. The particular standout on this live album is the emotive "Throw Myself Into You" which I understand has been picked up for Cross Rhythms radio play. The DVD includes live videos of four of the songs, a documentary explaining what RPM is all about, their promo video and all the music scores for all the songs on the album. All of this is well presented in a "youth" style - all quick cuts and interesting camera angles.
