With so many excellent pop rock worship albums around it would be easy to overlook this release from a band from Modesto, California, at least until they come to visit good old Blighty. But that would be a shame as Worth Dying For have two excellent lead singers in Sean Loche and Chrissy Johnson while the songs they sing manage to avoid most of the genre's clich├ęs and are performed with an exhilarating vitality. Cream of the crop is "Let It Out" while "Infiltrate", with a lyric consisting solely of the words "We will fight for you/We will die for you/We will go for you," is an extraordinary climax. Don't quite understand why they're all blindfolded on the front cover sleeve - maybe it's to do with facing a firing squad - but with music as spirit-lifting as this I'll forgive them that obtuseness.
