A compilation of many of their best known tracks from previous albums. Problem is, of course, in that road trod by the Manchester musicianaries - pop dance music - yesterday's rad relevance becomes today's cheese. There are one or two true classics with "I'm On My Way (To Zion)" and "Joy" - and the wonderfully exuberant "Hallelujah (Praise The Saviour)" but at around three minutes each; the tracks are too short to do justice to the writing. Putting their awful cover of David Evan's inspired contemporary hymn "Be Still" does them few favours. What this compilation lacks in today's music immediacy is more than compensated for in the busy, atmospheric delivery of their stage presence and their big heart for evangelism. A souvenir for the gig circuit, and that's about it.
