After almost criminal neglect from the UK CCM companies, Holland's most consistent Christian music talent finally gets UK distribution thanks to the commendable help of STL. Don't miss the opportunity. If you're looking for a grade 'A' pop rock gospel album in Steven Curtis Chapman mould but without that Nashville-cum-country twang, this is for you. An autobiographic album with the title track, the gritty opener "Testify To Love" and the haunting "Faces At The Window" all hitting home. Fine production from Henk Pool and some great playing most top US musos like Jerry McPherson and Tom Hemby. Chris Eaton adds some deft touches too in the BV department. An album that grows on the listener with every play.
