Ballymena-based Timothy Grahame-Smith debuts four self-penned worship songs in this, his first EP. Three of the songs focus on how the sacrifice Jesus made enables us to "Never be the same again" and empowers us to "Come on and praise the name of the reigning King", the holy Lord God Almighty. "Father I Adore" is more of a personal song of love and devotion to God the Father. The style is a mostly energetic, guitar-based church worship band sound, although it gets a little bit samey apart from the first section of "Lord God Almighty", which is quieter. Much of the time Timothy seems to sing at full blast; fine when in "worship leader mode" where you are providing a strong lead to a congregation, but it would have been better to work on a more lyrical singing style with some emotional tonal contrast for the studio recording. In and of themselves, the songs are eminently usable in a church context.
