Reviewed by Pauline Cooke
This debut album from the latest artist to be signed by Rocketown (Michael W Smith) has enough variety for even the most wide-ranging taste; from the mournful but appropriately upbeat ballad about death, "Last Notes", to the acoustic/rock thrash mix of "Should I Tell Them" and "Move Me". The US Christian radio turntable hit "Welcome Home" is wonderful, the lyrics a quirky antidote to home decorating, the focus on changing hearts rather than changing rooms! The whole album has good, well balanced musical arrangements. The lyrics, clearly centred in honest worship but with plenty to make one pause for reflection. Atmospheric and vulnerable.
