The opener "All Around You" has a gutsy guitar riff and a plaintive vocal but, in truth, is way too formulaic. And it doesn't help that the next song, "I Will Follow You", has an almost identical rhythm. I listen on. A cover version of Delirious?'s "Rain Down" doesn't get within a mile of the original classic. Now of course, By The Tree are a band in transition with drummer Aaron Blanton taking over at the vocal mic. Maybe it's that which explains this album's peculiar lack of freshness. All the arrangements sound like any one of a thousand rock worship recordings while lyrics like "God's love is perfect every time" hardly stretch the brain cells. I really liked the band when they were fronted by Chuck Dennie but here they sound so stylised it will take a complete rethink if they're to recapture this reviewer's interest.

This group of guys enters the millenium years of ccm, along with others like Jeremy Camp. I had seen the video for "World On Fire"; instant connection!; great song! I love it(big reason I bought the cd). "I Will Follow YOU" is another favorite; great song guys!
Great lead vocals by Aaron Blanton. I just love their sound. These guys recorded "YOU Are My Desire", and Jeremy Camp brought us "My Desire" to hear:
both are commendable. Great lyrics and tune for
"How Beautiful YOU Are"; another one I love. I really connect with "Any Other Way" great song guys!
Great worship song closes,"That's Why We Say".
This is the cd to buy if you don't have anything by this great group of guys. GOD Bless! -Don
