A personal project by a Maryland-based worship leader and his band in acoustic rock style. There are some pleasant songs here which were reminiscent, to me at least, of early Wayne Drain offerings, but also some pretty ordinary ones as well. Having said that, Tom Webster's obvious enthusiasm for what he is trying to do and say grew on me and I particularly appreciated "Come Spirit Of God" (track 4 out of 14). The whole production is short of raw passion though - the sort that would lift the listener from being in passive receptive mode to being an active worshipper.
