Having just come back from USA and knowing what the Vineyard Fellowship is doing out there, I was looking forward to listening to this CD. But I am afraid I was disappointed. The album is different from Hosanna Music in the way that Vineyard don't run their songs together in medleys. But you would hardly have guessed, often here it was like listening to 48 minutes of the same song with different variations on the theme. The major problem for me was that all the songs were in the same style and they were all about the same tempo. With the orchestration again being very similar. (FLowing arpeggios; thick synth string sounds; and many songs ending with the held synth dying away). They even tried to make Graham Kendrick's 'We Believe" into the same vain as the other songs with a poor result. There were two glimmers of light, the duet "One Thing I Ask" and a good ballad called "There's No One Like You" both well sung. But overall I was disappointed.
