This year seems to be a great year for new rock albums. Following on from Supervision's ICC album and Irish band [crave]'s debut release comes a full on rock effort from south coast trio Replenish. The band have been together since 2001 but this feels like their coming of age. Like another trio Tree63, they recorded in South Africa using the skills of producer Nik Fairclough. The results are a fine rock album with an uncompromised message and plenty of creativity thrown in. They have taken three previous favourites, "You Are", "Learn To Live" and "Anthem" and re-recorded them giving all the songs a new feel so that they work in a completely fresh way. I love the prayerful "See You" which is packed with atmosphere whilst the title cut is a moody rocker. The album has plenty of emotional vibes to create rock with lots of whistles and bells to pull you in and a solid spiritual heart to touch you when you get there. It is both immediate and deep, leaving the listener with something fresh to discover with every play. Not an easy feat to achieve but Replenish manage it and deserve to break through with this. Atmospheric, anthemic, emotional rock anybody?

An excellant rocked based album. Christains and non-christains alike will be left with messages that are deep and meaningful to them. It's easy listening means it can be enjoyed whether during quite time or throughout everyday activities.
This album is by far is my favourite from all of Replenishes releases. A recommened buy!!
