The Bradford-based church Abundant Life Ministries are well known, of course, but now the spotlight comes on their youth culture band (their Hillsong United, if you like). This live recording of RPM playing seven original numbers will appeal to those who are fans of contemporary Christian pop, with the occasional dip into heavy rock to give it some edge. "All Your Ways" is perhaps the highlight if only because it's got a more upbeat tone to it, ie, an apparent absence of minor chords. The slower numbers like "Whatever The Cost" and "Wonderful" have their moments too. Hardly groundbreaking worship music but fairly effective in its own way.
