Back in August 2005 Cross Rhythms reported on the unlikely teaming of a Welsh subpop-style grunge band Cupboard with worship leader Sian Elson for events as Swansea's famed Zac's Place. Somehow though the album recorded a year before slipped through the Cross Rhythms review net - until now. In truth, it's a disappointment. The guitars twang and jangle rather than having the needed wall of sound while Sian's voice sounds shrill, the arrangements a tad clumsy and the songs, penned by Sian herself, not particularly memorable.

ACTUALLY, its a brilliant album, Sian is an AMAZING singer the guitars don't twang and jingle! Her husband Darryl plays and he's been playing since he was 10, they are very talented and don't you dare think anything different!
