A seven-piece American grown up pop band embracing a number of different contemporary styles but mainly concerned with singing songs to bless the Church with harmonies tighter than tight. Not a lot which is groundbreaking but its all done with excellence and matches anything of a similar like coming out of Nashville. Highlights? All The Way is an acoustic guitar-driven slower song with a catchy tune and lyrics encouraging listeners to take hold of Jesus and find faith. Greatest Sacrifice sets out the truths of the death of Christ in bringing us life and In His Eyes is another acoustic-driven thing with some soulful vocals describing the need to build our lives on the foundations that last into eternity. For me the track that grabbed me most and which had the most soul was Sing To You, where guitarist Phil Halstead gets the chance to get funky, not simply on guitar but vocally - reminiscent of a young Bryan Duncan! Just groovy! Polished, full of ministry and musically on the money, if you like bands like Newsong or Phillips, Craig & Dean then theres much here for you to enjoy.
