This is a debut CD with an evidently simple and genuine heart behind it. My first impression was that of 'Supervision' being a Christian version of the secular band 'Gun', with the rock/acoustic feel to it. This Liverpool team have been taking indie rock and Martin Smith style worship around and about and doing support gigs with bands like Beehive. Contemplative songs like 'Sorry' and 'days of my Life' are for when you are alone in your room. With 'Your House is in Ruins' being good for when you're depressed and wanting to express those feelings from deep within. At times there was a hint of 'Extreme' and 'Skid Row' as the guitar became heavier. At these times 'Supervision' grabbed my stomach and I wanted to get up and mosh. However, it never seemed to quite reach where I thought it was going. Clearly this young band exude zeal to take the gospel to the highways and byways, but they need more time with their songwriting and more time in the studio with a producer.
