The Evidence are the Men's team from Teen Challenge, a UK charity working with young people to get free from life controlling problems. 'You Gave It All' is a collection of worship material, both self-written and more well known, such as "At The Foot Of The Cross" and "It Is Well". The style is male unison vocals over a predominantly rock backing that is consistently tight and controlled. To leave enough space for the vocals the rest of the sound has a tendency to suffer and almost seem a bit muddy at times, which is a shame as it really does rock. "My Hope" is a wonderful example of getting the rock feel right and "You Gave Your Life Away" works well the other way, paring the instrumentation right back and letting the vocals do all the work. While there is nothing bad here, there is also nothing that makes it stand out in the rather saturated rock worship field.
