The first time you play this album, turn up the speakers really loud and stand back. The raucous electric guitar initially blasts out with the power of a hurricane. The lyrics of this first track "Send A Shock Through The Power Lines" fit well. This is a sound that could fill a stadium. On this their fourth album, their major CCM success in the States is likely to continue. With a collection of bouncy anthems, such as "Sing" - "with one voice, one church under one King" - the songs carry their messages to today's youth with considerable passion. The title track is softer in approach but has a simplistic call to learn to love. Having toured together since 1996, the band are now showing a spiritual maturity in their subject content as personal trials invade their lyrics. "Eternal" reflects on personal mortality and that although divorce and death can separate us from love, there is no risk of losing God's love. This is a band you would want leading a youth service.
