I have matured through a variety of musical tastes and now realise that many different styles have something to offer me. To this end, my record collection is becoming somewhat cliched with the likes of Dire Straits, Fleetwood Mac and Womack & Womack. At last I have found a Christian group who can be added to ihis 'common' selection. Yes here is an album that, to my great joy, has crept into my new wave/rock slot, and its not secular! "The Eyes Of Love" is undoubtedly the high point, commercial rock at its best. The arrangement of "World Come Crashing Down" is ambitious and original, but is performed with great success. However, to single out particular tracks is unfair, the whole album deserves a thorough playing - probably several times over. If you're a metal freak, or a hip trendy who thinks anything commercial (i.e. with secular potential) is uncool, then forget this one. But if you like the occasional thump, and would like to tote at least one Christian album to your unsaved friends, then go for it. Remember, evangelism is effective when the recipient accepts it, and here's a record that may certainly help that acceptance. But I must warn - don't play this one on the car stereo - a ticket for speeding will soon be coming your way - and that's certainly no witness! PS. What about a 'live' version boys?
