Such is the upside down world of Nashville CCM that this could sell half a million or half a dozen. But your trusty music mag has to state that, regardless of the vagaries of the marketing suits or public's fickle taste, this is a stone classic - an acoustic orientated worship album which works on every level. It will pull you with deftly textured rhythms that move feather light one second and then, when needed, sock with the rhythmic thrust that can only come from friends playing together and enjoying it, not hirelings multi-tracked in anaemic perfection. It will move you as you listen to those haunting vocals and deft harmonies from Don and Lori Chaffer (Lori surely has one of the most instantly recognisable voices in Christendom). Most important of all 'You Are So Good To Me' will pull you into the holy of holies, where real worship is meant to take you. Thank God that with all the sales hype surrounding praise and worship today there are still acts like Waterdeep showing how spine-tingling, Spirit-lifting real worship can effect the jaded music hack.
