This 2013 album followed the earlier 'The Great Light', as the Manchester-based band continued their electronic rock worship direction with a truly infectious set. The opener "You Saved My Soul" draws you in, bathes you in an ocean of synth sounds, closely followed by "Uncreated One" demonstrating lyrically where the band's heart is - worship, "praising the maker of all the Earth." "Open Up" and the title track, present a musically different direction, demonstrating glorious harmonies, sounding like Simon And Garfunkel in many ways! My personal favourite "The Judge", is simply beautiful both lyrically and musically...if you can imagine Fleet Foxes mixed with London Grammar/XX you will be close! A great worship album that dares to break the mould!
