The latest recruits to Bill Gaither's Spring Hill roster are this sibling trio who've made four good, if not spectacular, albums since their debut in 1995, and this one is in the same category. That having been said, this has its highlights, one of which is an unexpected rendition of Delirious?' "I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever"; there are reworkings of some old time gospel favourites ("My Jesus I Love Thee", "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms", "Be Thou My Vision"), a little bit of acapella, which they're rather good at, some straight ahead pop gospel ("Settle On My Soul" is very acceptable), and one or two good inspirational pieces, including my favourite track "Healer Of My Heart", which is getting airplay at the moment on UCB Inspirational. I'm very encouraged that the Cheese Factor on recent Spring Hill albums is greatly reduced, so you might like to check this one out.
