This album goes a long way to prove that there's more to Aussie rock praise and worship than Darlene and The Hillsongs gang. Please step forward Paradise Assemblies Of God Church. South Australia, and, with the far from negligible assistance of the one and only David Evans, they turn in a cookin' set of rock praise anthems. David produces, arranges and leads worship (very sensitively, PTL), and also throws in a couple of songs of his own. "My Jesus" and the title track, which flow together as a 15 minute magnum opus to close the set. The rest of the songs are "in house" from the members of the worship team, production standards are up to scratch (given the acoustic problems sometimes encountered on live recordings in large auditorial, everyone does his or her job well, and the result is a very acceptable example of the genre and good value playing time-wise at nearly an hour. Can't wait for the video!
