Antiseptic spirituality is banned on this debut from a band whose name derives from a museum in Romania that chronicles that nation's revolutionary break from communism. Rooted at Decatur, Georgia's Briarlake Baptist Church, the band falls in lock-step with modern worship groups like Tenth Avenue North and Revive. Themes revolve around God's power and mercy, not just human problems. The smooth-as-silk production (Aaron Sprinkle, Jason Ingram, et al), songwriting help from Ian Eskelin and Philip LaRue, and a hook-happy vibe make this a startlingly good freshman effort. Half the songs are primed and ready for Christian radio and youth groups everywhere.1
