This is yet another quality set of contemporary praise songs for preteen worshippers from the great team at Spring Harvest. Always reliable Mark Edwards is the producer and the keyboard whiz is ably assisted in this project by some fine musicians, including guitar maestros Dan Wheeler and Neil Costello. There are songs by Doug Horley ("God You're So Amazing" and "Wonderful Lord"), Vicky Beeching ("Jesus Is My Best Friend") and Michael W Smith & Paul Baloche ("A New Hallelujah"). The lead vocals are sung with real conviction and a clearly enthusiastic children's choir help out on most tracks. And if one CD of upbeat, catchy songs isn't enough, there's a bonus disc with 15 more tracks on it, featuring songs by Dave Godfrey, Jim Bailey and Andy Flannagan. Once again Spring Harvest demonstrate what kids' worship should really sound like - it's excellent!
