No doubt being released just before the Florida Outpouring this album features worship led by Judah Robertson ably supported by Roy Fields (the worship leader at the centre of the Outpouring) and Catherine Mullins. It is certainly to be commended for uniqueness and originality but I do feel the sometimes excessive use of synths on some of the backing tracks detract from the lyrical message. This is evidenced particularly in "I Bless You" while the blowing of the shofar on the end of "King Of Glory" and throughout "The Call" doesn't make for comfortable listening. On a positive note, when things have been kept simple as in "My Abba Father" the solid vocals of Catherine Mullins and the beautiful lyrics have the chance to win through. Overall, the three lead vocalists compliment each other well, each giving a very different sound and musically they are brave to step away from the more mainstream praise and worship music.
