Very few Americans have been as influential on British Christian music in the past decade as Kevin Prosch. An important influence and mentor for Matt Redman and Martin Smith (delirious?), his own passion-drenched records have sold well but never really clicked with this reviewer...the emotion was rather overpowering.

Bryn Haworth's slide playing may not be his best, but is certainly more than just appropriate. Lyrics too are well crafted, although not quite as consistent as the music. These lyrics, the first on the album, set the tone well:
