Tim Hughes is maturing as an artist, but that's not necessarily a good thing. Songs are more complex: the opening track "Counting on Your Name" starts with an angelic whisper, adds Euro-rock accents, then settles into an emotive, piano-driven groove.

A few tracks lack an obvious hook, and Jeremy Camp's version of "Jesus Saves"—written by Hughes—is much better than the one included here.
