It all started sounding not bad, you know the usual well-produced, big sounding, average import. But then Ron David Moore's wonderful vocals began to cut through, with the even more wonderful words of the title track slicing deeper still ("My House" is a brilliant song about Jesus cleansing the temple and how God wants to cleanse us for His use). After that I wanted to hear more of what this man had to say! It was well worth the listen. To say Mr Moore is a good songwriter is like saying Michelangelo wasn't bad at painting ceilings. I loved "Spiritual Storm", a new country-ish number about spiritual warfare - then there is the beautiful ballad "There's Somebody Out There"; a great Phil Collins' style song "When We Pray", complete with a kicking horn section. "Strength Of My Heart" is a worship song, miles better than most of what we are offered on praise concept albums and what about "B.A.D." (Born Again And Delivered), a right wee rocker with some great sax work. I could go on, but I'm sure you've got the idea - if you want an album that offers loads, and delivers, get this! One gripe, playing time is under 40 minutes, so a couple more tracks would have been welcome, but I suspect Ron David wanted to leave us shouting for Moore. We're shouting!
