With a title like that you'd be forgiven for assuming that the Spring Harvest organisers had finally realised that their worship for the 17-24 plusses had grown a trifle safe and were prepared to grasp the nettle and offer worship music closer to the cutting edge. For the opener, a Johnny Markin driving, heavy rockish song "I'll Stand" (quite good though sounding a bit like a left over from Johnny's own ICC album) you might still think there was a bit of youth culture relevancy. But soon we're into the same slightly limp pop-praise of years past. Superb vocalists of the calibre of Tracey Riggan and Nanette Welmans are almost entirely wasted. Memo to Spring Harvest - hand next year's youth praise music over to the World Wide Message Tribe. Rave and house may not be what the average British Youth For Christ committee man thinks makes an appropriate platform for praise, but it would be a lot more 'on the edge' than this tired set of praise songs.
