The venerable Mr. Brown has been around the US Christian music circuit for rather more years than he might care to remember, and equally he might not like to be reminded of a few rather glutinous offerings from the late '70s and early '80s, particularly one called "He Will Carry You", covered by just about every inspo warbler worth his/her salt. These days Scott tends towards the more comfortable and less OTT end of the musical spectrum, and this self-penned and self-produced offering will appeal to all who like their praise music nice 'n' easy. Truth to tell, there are plenty of purveyors of this kind of fare, and in a crowded market-place, it helps to have a track record (no pun intended!) so that the punters know what to expect. In Scott's case, what we expect are well-written straightforward songs directed God-wards, and that's what we get. Not the cutting edge by any means, but not to be sniffed at; loads of folks get blessed by this style of music.

Wow! what a nice collection of worship songs; I just luv the starter song "YOU Are LORD". Scott wrote the songs on this project; a few of them had the assistance of David Hampton;wonderful song-writing here! CCM artist David Baroni joins in the list of bgv's; David's recordings are worth investing.
"Only YOUR Mercy" is just so beautiful a song, one of those perfect songs of worship. "The Gospel is True" is another noteworthy song; a beautiful duet:WHO IS THE SOFT ANGELIC VOCAL? IS IT TAMMY JENSEN? IS SHE THE SAME VOCAL DUET ON "HE Will Rejoice Over You"? The title song "More Like YOU" is another captivating song; perfect song for worshipping. EVERY song is worth complimenting on this cd. What a gentle inviting song of "If You Need JESUS";luv this one! I believe that this is one of Scott's finest recording projects in his career. Scott also produced this work of wonderful songs of worship:great job Scott! GOD Bless!- Don ps. it's nice to see Scott returning with a new recording after more than a decade!
