Like Petra, White Heart are a band whose history is littered with line up changes. By the time they reached this fourth album, they were already on singer number three! 'Don't Wait For The Movie' saw former roadie Rick Florian make his debut as vocalist after singer number two, Scott Douglas, was arrested, tried and sadly jailed as a sex offender. The band recovered from the shock and decided to carry on though Dan and David Huff left. Musically the new line up managed a more sophisticated sound with this release, combing some slightly edgier rock tunes with some smooth '80s rock ballads. It's all very AOR but there's plenty to enjoy like the driving rock of "Holy Ground", "Read The Book" and "Dr Jekyll And Mr Christian". There's some good '80s pop as evidenced by "No Apology" and on the ballad, "Fly Eagle Fly". Modern rock this isn't but if you were there, it's likely you look back on this album with a certain amount of nostalgia. It's the sound of a CCM band rising to new heights.
