Style: Pleasant but forgettable folk-pop worship; compare to Selah, Phil Wickham
Top Tracks: "Love Divine," "Above Nothing Else"
The charming child-like artwork on this album seemed to promise a listening experience that lay outside the boundaries of what we've come to expect from modern worship music. What a shame it is then that this UK-based group falls right in line with the rest of the sanguine crowd. The occasional bit of fuzzy bass and dreamy keyboard parts appear to be inspired by the current strain of indie rock, but everything else is pure gloss and artifice. Their message, though, is dead on, drawing on imagery and language that speaks to the modern heart just as easily as it would worshipers from decades past.1
