This album will not disappoint those who have enjoyed the one time Cambridge-based worship leader now based in the US. Vicky's songs and the collection spans material penned between 1997 and 2005. To tempt CD purchasers further Vicky's full length debut has been packaged with a sampler of nine songs from various artists by Survivor and Sixsteps. Vicky starts her album with the title track, a poppy, upbeat worship song with catchy chorus, followed on by the slower "Created" which moves from gentle acoustic intro to a rockier sound as the song unfolds. A mixture of upbeat and gentle worship songs all of which are well produced, some tracks stand out more than others as potential radio friendly releases; namely "Search Me", "Nothing Is Impossible", "Extravagant Worship" and the gentle "Captivated" with its piano intro and beautifully descriptive lyrics. I liked her adaptation of Helen Lemmel's "Turn Your Eyes" but for me it didn't quite have the edge over The Newsboys version. Coupled with the second CD including songs by The David Crowder Band, Tim Hughes, Brenton Brown and Johnny Parks, this would make a pleasing addition to any CD collection.
