This is a solo project by a member of the band Selah and songs are mostly guitar-led pop rock but with gentler offerings, "Our Love Will Survive" and "Sweet Jesus", a duet with Matthew West. The album has a theme based on John Eldredge's book Wild At Heart: Discovering The Secret Of A Man's Soul, encouraging Christian men to live life to the full, a book which I happen to have had recommended to me and read earlier this year. Track titles such as "Lukewarm" and "Alive" reflect the theme and, obviously, the lyrics are a particularly important element of the album. Todd's expressive, and at times soulful, voice is well suited to this collection of 10 songs and the project is well worth a listen.

If you don't buy another CD this year, make sure you get this on, walk the journey through with Todd,
The guy loves Jesus, If he ever went into the Xfactor he would walk it to the last round, 10 out of 10. Great CD, great to here it on the Crossrhythms play list at last.
