In many ways a surprising album. Considering that many of Ray's potential album buyers are...ahem...less than young, the Welsh singing pastor has avoided the middle of the road and gone down a lightly funky path. Also surprising is Ray's source of new songs, most of them stemming from the catalogue of Aussie Geoff Bullock, some of whose rock-orientated praise songs have gained UK release. Engineer/producer Pete King assembles a tight, bright bunch of British musicians around Ray - the Griffiths Brothers on horns are particularly outstanding -Ray wheezes through the material with passion - and even his version of over-recorded praise chorus "Lord I Lift Your Name On High" comes out sounding fresh. Good one Ray.
