Comment: Don't get me wrong, I love Delirious. At their best, their music is awe-inspiring and many of their lyrics move me more than almost anything else. But with this album they've changed. Musically, it's not as strong as the best of their previous releases. But much more worryingly, lyrically, this represents a move away from the evangelical mainstream. Their influences are people like Shane Claiborne and Brian McClaren who each provide a short essay in the accompanying booklet. Both of these guys deny key elements of historic Christianity (such as Jesus death on the cross paying for our sins, hell, even the knowabilityof God). Unfortunately this shines through in Smith's lyrics. Sorry; I'd have loved to love it. But I'm not convinced I know the same gospel they do.
