I must admit I am not sure that a whole album of acapella singing may be too much of a good thing, rather like too much cream on your scones, but I have to give the Martins huge credit for originality. Here we have 10 tracks which start with "He's Everything To Me", nicely setting the tone for an album of seriously strong Christian material. The picks of the album for me are "Fairest Lord Jesus", "Praise To The Lord" (which works extremely well) and a trio including the lovely "Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing". The final track "You Will Never Walk Alone" lets the album down, as I don't feel this works at all. All I can say is that if you are a devotee of acapella music you may want to investigate.
