Terry Taylor almost single handedly pioneered the alternative Christian rock thing in the early 80s with his excellent band Daniel Amos. You'll also find him as one of the Lost Dogs and if you're very careful you may have already discovered that he is the brains behind spoof band the Swirling Eddies. Previously an opportunity for him to revel in his rather weird sense of humour, The Eddies have now become a little more of a serious proposition with this latest album which is musically akin to late 80s DA. Nothing here as controversial as "Hide The Beer, The Pastor's Here" from their previous release but still a lot to make you smile. The title song concerns the rapture and if you want an idea of what else is on offer the titles themselves will give you an idea of where Taylor is shooting from. "Nightmare At The Elks Lodge", "God Went Bowling" and "Multipurpose Man" will reassure you that he's as off the wall as ever. Creativity or craziness? Both actually! He manages to make you laugh and think at the same time - no mean feat. Unlikely to win Taylor new fans, but for those who have discovered the joys of previous material, much to enjoy!

You occassionally get a few comedic gems in other Christian groups, but you never seem to get the comedy along with true piercing thought. The Swirling Eddies may just be a funnier side of DA, but Terry Taylor still manages to weave so much impact throughout songs that might be at first glance little more than spoof. This album has a very alternative sound indeed, you only need to hear the sheer brilliant wierdness of "I Had A Bad Experiece" to know that this is at once a more piercing, and actually more serous offering from the Eddies. The great lyrics of "Disco Love Grapes" along with it funky bassline enhance the fact that this guy surely knows how to write.

The expose of too many a life has never been written any better than in "The Golden Girl" This is a very good piece. "Pyro Sets A Wildfire" is a little like "Driving in England" from the Eddies previous album, of what many a God fearing peson must feel at times. The brilliance and the lyrical precision in "Soe Helpful Advice" is catching. Zoom Daddy had to be the Eddies most probing album up to this point. It certainly has a lot to offer. Just play "The Twist" to get a song from the Lord that isnt cliched smarmy. Just plain excellent songwriting skill. Well done ddie, i love yer!
