Wow! What an immense, heartfelt and powerful album. Pennsylvania's prophetic worship man Sean has in recent years lost a father and gained a daughter. He pours his heart and soul into every track on this album and it is a joy to be able to share in the experience. The live studio tracks in particular give the overwhelming impression that Sean is lost in worship even as he records; there is no hint of mechanically going through the motions here as "More Than Enough" turns into a 12 minute extended outpouring of praise to the Almighty God. The production quality and songwriting imagination are all top notch right from the outset and Feucht's experimentation with various guitar effects reflects influences as wide ranging as Coldplay, Kings Of Leon and Delirious?. The tender voice of Andrea Marie Reagan brings a special Beth Orton type quality to "Be Not Far" that adds an attractive vulnerability to compliment Feucht's clean cut and confident singing. There are very few short tracks here which is just as well because for some of these songs to end after three minutes would result only in disappointment and a longing for more. We're now left longing for the next Sean Feucht album.

Through joy and pain, celebration and sorrow, mountaintop and valley, we are beckoned into embracing the mystery of an unseen God in a fallen world. We "walk by faith and not by sight" simply choosing to trust, with childlike innocence, in the unending goodness and faithfulness of our Abba Daddy. Welcome to the pilgrimage from where the anthology of these songs was birthed. From utter despair of losing my father to the pure joy of becoming a father, I refuse to allow the unforeseen transitions of this life to snuff out the flame of love that brightly burns inside. May a generation of burning hearts arise to carry the fire of first love until the very end.
