Correct me if I'm wrong but Bermuda isn't strictly in the Caribbean is it? Doesn't stop Huntley Septimus from delivering a strong album drawing on reggae, dancehall and soca influences. It kicks off with a fake live soca track "Highest Praise" which is a lively catchy place to start. However the rest of the album is patchy in places and favours dancehall. Septimus is a powerful performer throughout but is sometimes let down by the grooves that could be stronger in places. "Made By God" has a stronger straight forward club dance groove whilst the title cut and "How Dem Fi Duh Dat" are also highlights. He reggaefies a couple of popular church songs - "Yes Jesus Love Me" and "O How I Love Jesus" which both work fine though the album does seem to run out of steam towards the end. So there are a few glimmering moments, quite a bit of padding and the results are slightly disappointing in places.
