This trio not only mines excellent cover songs from the late 1960s to early 1980s Jesus music era but also refines and polishes a number of gems so they sport a brand-new sparkle. Most notable is the iconic "Your Love Broke Through," as Bennett joins Batstone mid-song in a striking minor-key, ethereal vocal round/call-response that becomes an arresting, dusky coda—a lovely addition to the otherwise sunny, familiar melody. Indeed the Batstone/Bennett vocal blend often bewitches when it pops up from track to track—far and away the highlight across consistently imaginative treatments of already legendary tunes.1
