If the excellent 'Year Of Jubilee' album by Britain's YFC made you wonder what their Dutch counterparts could manage, here's the grizzly answer. Songs like "Give Thanks", "This Little Light Of Mine", "Come On And Celebrate", etc, all with the '90s equivalent of a Hammond organ (actually a badly programmed synth) make up the backing tracks. Musically there is nothing technically wrong with it. All is very neat and tidy, but the "powerful celebration of life" suggested on the sleeve it is definitely not. Even a brief appearance by the seriously talented Ralph Van Manen can't save this rocky youth praise collection. Most interesting fact though, Petula Clark is found in the credits on track six, "His Love Is Warmer".
