Reviewed by Tony Cummings

Mega-churches, once they have established a successful line of adult worship albums, will often start releasing children's albums sometimes with mixed results. So Atlanta's North Point Community Church is to be congratulated in releasing an album which doesn't simply replicate the approach of their somewhat generic adult albums but rather finds a youth-friendly sound with many of the songs featuring a looping percussion rhythm, vocal distortion and power pop dance melodies. Lyrics too manage to stay the right side of banality as they deal with tried and tested subjects like God's love ("Your Love For Me"), Scripture ("Books Of The Bible") and an attitude of gratitude ("Thank You"). Featuring such well known North Point musicians as Eddie Kirkland, Casey Darnell and Seth Condrey the project also demonstrates that there are other strong musical talents at the church. For instance, "Thank You", sung by Karen Pearson Shelton, shows an exceptional new singer who sounds a little like Christy Nockels. Occasionally the accompaniments misfire (the cod Caribbean "Look At Our God") demonstrates again that Americans can't make the sounds of JA) but the dubstep-tinged "Tell The World" with lead singer Lizi Bailey urging kids to be a strong witness would sound good on a mainstream dance floor if a remixer ever got hold of it. All in all, an excellent children's album some of which is better than North Point's adult releases.
