Reviewed by Philip Crawley

Paul Alan used to front the rather good pop rockers Nouveaux, but what we have here are 11 self-penned numbers recorded over the period '98 to this year. I'm a sucker for verse-bridge-chorus songs and even more so if there are lots of guitars in evidence, and so I approached this CD with some hope. For the most part I wasn't disappointed although I occasionally found myself wishing for a bit more grit and variation in arrangement. I suppose stylistically he's very similar to Stephen Curtis Chapman. "Leaving Lonely" is my favourite number but it is followed by "Can't Live Without You" which lets the side down a bit with bumper sticker style slogan-lyrics ("solid ground", "safe and sound"...etc.). The sleevenotes (and the fact that it's on one of America's smaller labels) imply that this isn't the big-budget Nashville "unit-shifter" we see lots of - and it probably benefited hugely because of it. There are some good songs of faith here and they haven't been over-produced.
