The brothers from Western Samoa make some of the soulfullest music in Christendom and when they emote on a tender self-written worship ballad like "Thankyou", the effect is truly magnificent. But much of this album is a live recording and there's a better studio version of "Thankyou" on the group's previous set 'Destiny'. Also, when the guys do an old worship warhorse like "Lord I Lift Your Name On High" in truth they bring nothing new to the song. So it's the studio cuts which intersperse this set which make the most attractive listening. Occasionally the live songs get through (the worship oldie "I Give You My Heart" has recently gone on the Cross Rhythms playlist). Having said that, this album is unlikely to extend the group's following.
