The Nottingham Pilgrim Community is a Catholic community of lay people founded in 1989, and this album is their first effort at recording. The band has seven members, five of which are female (including Katie on drums), and all the songs have been written by members of the Community. The styles range from pop to acoustic to ambient, the songs vary in quality from competent to ordinary, the vocals are rather weak, sometimes low in the mix, the accompaniment is sometimes rather perfunctory, and the whole thing sounds sadly dated. At times I'm reminded of The Fisherfolk, and whilst I don't doubt the enthusiasm of the band, and their commitment to spread the gospel, this is really only average. Sorry guys.
