The Florida-based band have quickly established themselves as major CCM sellers and for those who have yet to catch up this six-song compilation offers their Christian radio hits. From the opening track "By Your Side" I was hooked. The lyrics are thoughtful and thought provoking ("Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough" which seems like a riposte to U2's "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"). "Hold My Heart" captures a poignant sense of longing ("I'm on my knees begging you to notice me") before breaking into an anthemic chorus. "Strong Enough To Save" is encouraging in its confidence in God while the most accessible and commercial song is "Healing Begins" with its vital message and gorgeous chorus. If you're looking for strong melodies and lyrics that are challenging and reassuring, this showcase should be investigated.
