Sister Ingrid is big news in her native Holland, but not so over here. If I mentioned Eurovision Song Contest you'd get some idea about the sound of this album. It's poppy, synthy lightweight fodder which will either inspire or irritate. "The Child Who Lives In You" had me shouting (tongue in cheek) "Nul Points!" On a more positive note "Lord I Wanna Tell You" is an acceptable upbeat ballad, which trundles along nicely and Ingrid's voice sits comfortably on the simple arrangement. "Mustard Seed", the title track, sounds much the same as everything else, with not a lot to arrest the attention. In fact, after a while all the songs blended into one greyish collage as I was left trying to salvage some colour from this. Bland, unimaginative and disappointing.
