Doing exactly what it says on the tin is this album by Zamar aka Steve Stoddart (brother of the somewhat better known Wayne Stoddart). This collection of praise and worship stays unequivocally true to Zamar's reggae roots. The Jamaican-born singer/songwriter, now residing in Canada, includes a cover of Matt Redman's "Heart Of Worship" though "When the music plays, and dull is slipped away" is not exactly how Redman originally penned the lyric. Whilst the overall standard of music and vibrato-tinged vocals are generally alright the lack of any real dynamics does eventually produce an aura of monotony. In truth there are better reggae worship albums than this one in the marketplace.
