Yep, this SOUNDS like the one able to catapult these grassroots toilers into the big time. As far as I'm concerned, all the care and money to give these guys an infectious radio friendly sheen without losing any of their rock'n'roll edge pays off big time. Grab "Zealous Core", which a loyal clique may know and love from their EP and live gigs, but will now have even more propulsive rhythmic thrust to go with that strangely haunting vocal. Or catch "My Ever My All" where an ancient Psalm is beautifully transformed into a rock worship anthem which will surely one day resonate from stadia around the world. Or lose yourself in the title track with its goosepimple-inducing plea for the Spirit to fall. An album which deserves to be recognised as up there with the finest Delirious? and Sonicflood, utterly fresh, modern worship for a new generation. There can only be one square rating.
