Reviewed by Peter Timmis

Furler was, of course, long time frontman of the Newsboys and 'On Fire' is his first venture as a solo artist since quitting the CCM hitmakers last year. Fans of the Newsboys will find a lot to like here as Peter delivers an excellent album of electro rock with huge choruses and insightful lyrics. The set opens strongly with the thumping disco beats of "I'm Alive" and is followed by the melodic, synth-led first single "Reach". Best cut of all though is the New Order-esque "Closer" with infectious industrial beats, a grooving bassline, stabs of electric guitar and an unexpected appearance of Christian music pioneer Steve Taylor. Another unexpected treat is "Psalm 23" where the familiar verse is set to electronic beeps with Furler's voice heavily disguised by vocoder. 'On Fire' is an uplifting and intelligent debut that seems sure to propel Furler to the very top of the CCM tree.

Debut solo album from the former Newsboys frontman.

Grammy nominated and Dove award winning Peter Furler needs no introduction. He has driven the sales of five Gold records and sales of over seven million albums as the unforgettable front man for Newsboys.

Peter has written, produced and sung over 25 number one hits including classics such as He Reigns, Shine, Something Beautiful, and It is You. Now, Peter Furler begins to write a new chapter in his history with his first solo album, which some are calling Peter’s greatest work to date. Like any true artist though, Peter is merely finding an outlet after God called him to take some time away.

‘’There is a fire shut up in my bones that I have not been able to hold in since I was a child,’’ says Furler. ‘’For me, I find its release through melody and testimony.’’ Furler’s fans are eagerly anticipating what will be next from one of music’s most inspirational and charismatic artists.

I purchased 4 copies of this through a Book store and was BLOWN AWAY by the music, the lyric's and for Peter Furler's voice again after 2 years of not hearing him sing. His words come from God and fill your heart with the Love of the Lord, with a special added part by his Father Bill Furler and Phil Joel on the 11th song. Amazing---everyone needs to buy one and hear it.
