CR reviewers who get sent this kind of kids' album should be the exception to the rule that this mag's reviewers are unpaid: we should get danger money. Even if you actually like cutesy little all-American kids singing in perfect unison (because they're all flat) that they love God "More and more/More than peanut butter" (sic!) this may still not be the tape for you. It is well crafted, reasonably well produced and most of the time theologically quite sound because it doesn't venture beyond the kind of abstract ideas you'd find in an old style adult confirmation class. Whether you approve of the direct teaching about the "real garbage" - the Devil - is a matter of personal opinion. But the tape has one major drawback which should deter most potential buyers: it is just the soundtrack to the video of the same name (side 1 stereo; side 2 exactly the same, only split tracks). Without the visuals, most of the jokes fall flat. Without the jokes, most of the music falls flat. Without effective jokes or music, most of the teaching and worship falls flat.
