Reviewed by Niall Dunne

Angella Christie is well known in the US as a gospel saxophonist. But though I can really appreciate her great skill as a musician, a lot of the album is a very uncomfortable listen. It goes from fairly easy-listening songs, like "John 3:16" (and other such secretive titles!) to the most unlistenable arrangements, such as "Total Praise". By the end of that one, the squeak of the sax could probably kill any dog within a mile radius. It has the same kind of overblown flourishes which made those Phil Driscoll instrumental albums so hard to take way back when, but now the offending instrument isn't the trumpet, but tenor sax. But I guess my biggest criticism is that there just isn't enough variety in the instrumentation for my taste. Maybe some gospel jazz enthusiasts will connect with this set but for me it was flash over substance.
