When I saw this band at Greenbelt earlier this year, I was amazed that it was the band's debut gig. It just seemed like they'd been gigging for years. Whilst live, I seemed to remember elements of funk; this CD shows little sign of this - instead sticking to the indie end of Brit-rock, familiar territory for fans of the bands on Elevation Records. The vocals are slightly grungy, in a style similar to Jonah 33 or Seventh Day Slumber, and with similarly worshipful moments too ("Broken Hearts"). However, the music takes in influences from old school rock as well as our home-grown Brit-rock bands, "Glory" being the highlight but the title track and "Tonight" staying fairly strong. Here is a band with a clear streak of originality but still within the confines of what indie labels are looking for. Watch out for this band, they may well be the next Supervision; they may even surpass them and break into the mainstream.

This is the best worship cd i think i have ever listened to. It takes a unique approach to connecting with God and the amazing, awe-inspiring lyrics are perfect for coping with the wrold today and dealing with the pressures and troubles of every day life. IT IS A MUST HAVE!!
