Here it is. The first Christian rave album. The first Christian dance album that doesn't run out of steam after the first few tracks. This is a landmark alburn. It's as important to the development of Christian music as anything any Christian artist has ever released. Scott Blackwell has been involved in musical innova­tion for some time, as one of the first to bring 'live' playing to the top dance clubs in Miami and New York. But now he's committed his life to Christ and produced this album of astonishing energy. As the sleeve notes say, "it's not a question of dancing or not, it's a matter of why". The title track is an almost purely instrumen­tal hardcore rave track. "My King" is a clever groove behind an astonishing sermon by Dr S M Lockridge. "Love Comes Down" kicks out a real gutsy beat and features a rap by M C Peace. And so it goes on. There are no weak tracks and there is no compromise in the proclamation of the gospel. 'Walk On The Wild-side1 may or may not be played in the clubs and ware­houses of Britian, but it is certainly a God-send to all the emerging rave worshippers in Britain's churches. Buy this album, or miss out on the beginning of a whole new chapter
