Brand new for 1998 comes a further selection of upbeat gospel songs from Andrew Bromley's hardworking choir and band from the Midlands.  This collection of Pentecostal praise is very much in the vein of their previous efforts but is delivered with more punch.  You have to be pretty fit to join this choir as the songs motor along at high speed for much of the time.  The influence of transatlantic praise remains evident throughout the album and every conceivable Bible cliché seems to have made its way somewhere onto the lyric sheet which could raise the question as to whether Spirit Song have anything new to say rather than simply re-treading a well worn path.  This would be a pity as tracks like "You Mean So Much To Me" and "Kindle The Flame" show that they clearly are well trained and able to set a standard of singing that other choirs would do well to emulate.
