Reviewed by Mike Rimmer

Let's see...pianist, guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, arranger and producer, Rob Mathes is clearly talented. For years, he was part of Chuck Mangione's group. Musical credentials established, panoramic is probably the best way to describe Mathes' marriage of pop, jazz, choral, gospel, brass and classical styles. This is actually a concept album containing "In My Heart Of Hearts" and "Let The Children Come", both of which are song cycles - a group of songs with a narrative theme. Musically, this is sophisticated stuff, musically polished and refreshingly different from the Nashville scene. The album deals with issues of faith and existence and these are portrayed both musically and lyrically. There is a wonderful spine chilling moment where the gospel exuberance of "Sing Hallelujah" clashes with the classical brass opening of "Troubled Today" to paint a realistic picture of the clash between doubt and faith. Clever stuff! Outstandingly performed, I particularly liked the Sting-like vocal of "Gracious Good Shepherd" and the funk and truth of "Five Sparrows". This album has everything except the kitchen sink - lyrical themes that stimulate both brain and spirit and musical brilliance seldom experienced in Christian music. A rewarding listen if you take the time to enjoy it.
