The debut, 'At Rest In God', was a creative scotch broth with just about every electronic genre mashed into its genius. This second album moves firmly away from those early scribblings and we really taste the more refined qualities of Piers Williamson (aka Vivid Prophet). Enlisting ex-Blazevision singer Liz Hallam, Piers pens an 11-song album with strong lyrics and even stronger beats. Smart drums and chunky bass lines blend perfectly with clever guitar rhythms, not dissimilar to recent Massive Attack tracks. In fact, if you want to compare, this sounds like the kind of album Kosheen would have produced had they not disappeared down the MOR route. Liz's voice magically charms the ear encouraging us to draw closer to God, spread the good news and have self respect. Refreshing, unique and well-crafted (it's even got a sneaky, secret track!), this is a must have from the UK dance underground.

British drum and bass innovator recruits vocal talent on second outing.

I bought this CD after reading the review, but I'm sorry to say it is one of the worst efforts at Christian dance I have come across. It just doesn't work musically at all for me, no matter how forgiving I try to be towards it. For Drum n' Bass it is disjointed rather than rhythmic, and I honestly wish I had listened to it before purchase. Can't recommend one good track on the whole album. My advice would be to listen before you buy it.
