A good record that's very difficult to categorise. Sort of roots/AOR exhortational liturgy - know what I mean? There are all sorts of influences here. The sound is basically Irish/American with a discernible African rhythm on certain tracks and the grittiness of Rich's voice reminds me of Sting or Bryan Adams, but there's more to it than that. Van Morrison comes to mind but I'm wary of making that comparison. Anyway, this is something unique. The record is split into two sections - the first of which is a sort of liturgy with a Gloria, a Credo and an Agnus Dei - the second half is a collection of songs about the Christian life. My favourite track is "Creed" which carries the message along on a wave of powerful driving rhythms and leaves no doubt that the most important part of the creed is the phrase, "I believe". This is one I can play to my non-Christian friends.

Great cd!! "Here in America" begins the list of timeless classic tunes by a fantastic songwriter & musician. The song has that nice nostalgic sound, I just luv the song!! The 4th # on the cd is "Hold Me JESUS", what a powerful, home-hitting song!! CCM pioneer Amy Grant did a nice rendition on tribute cd for Rich in 1998. "Creed" is another great song that was heard on ccm radio. "You Gotta Get Up (Christmas song)" is a cd favorite as well as "Hard".
I believe this has got to be one of Rich's all time top cd's! GOD Bless! -Don
