The debut album from Texas based Christian contemporary pop rock outfit is far too short to be treated as anything but an e.p with a stack of bonuses tagged onto the package in the form of videos and interviews. Nonetheless what is on offer is well worth the attention. Starting as a Dave Matthews/Jars Of Clay covers band the band have developed into an outfit more than capable of penning their own hooky compositions. Opener ‘Glorious’, with it’s scything guitars and harmony vocals, is possibly the catchiest slice of pop rock that I’ve heard this year (2007), whilst the ballad ‘You Belong To Me’ would appeal to many an AOR fan. The vocals courtesy of Matt Minor are stunning throughout especially on the The Hoosiers sound alike ‘Where You Want’ or the phenomenal ‘Low’ where he sounds more like Stephen Tyler or James Christian. Expect to hear more from this band, as this is a quite brilliant mini album. Mike Newdeck
