Reviewed by Allan Clare

What a strange little album this is. Right from the surreal cover (a field of sheep gazing upwards with what look like human eyes) I was wondering what to expect, and I'm still finding it very difficult to pigeon hole the style. The best I can say is that it's a sort of quirky pop-rock album (heavy on the pop), full of catchy ditties that sound as if they were recorded in a 1970s studio with an electro-roots feel. Does that make any sense at all? The nearest band I can think of is They Might Be Giants. This is Millett's first recording of original songs since becoming a Christian three years ago, and the joy of that recent experience does shine through in songs such as "The Lord Is Alive" which is a great radio-friendly pop song and "Give Praise". Elsewhere the lyrics are very evangelistic, with "Find Him" having the lines, "When repentance has arisen in the sinners/That's where you'll find Him" - and it's a sign of the quirkiness of the album that such lyrics are found in a catchy little melody! The album's joyful feel is seen on song titles such as "The Man Upstairs" and "A Dose Of The Ghost", which stretch the silliness a little too far for my liking (the latter is, I hope, a children's song). On the downside, "Living Right" is a bit of a shambles. The album ends with "Be Saved" which, to add to the eclecticism, is a quite charming acoustic ballad. Millet says on his website that he thinks "life is a precious journey and should be travelled with a big smile, a spirit of adventure, a sense of humour, and as many songs as possible."
