Still playing after all these years,
This review is from: The Gap (Audio CD)I bought the vinyl version when it first came out and played it to death. I replaced it, finally, with this CD. This rocks better than almost any other "Jesus rock" album I've ever heard (including Randy Stonehill and Larry Norman, but excepting Norman Barratt and some of Bryn's others). Think of a righteous slide-playing Dave Edmunds and you get close. Bryn's trademark melodic slide (as heard on a variety of Gerry Rafferty, Ian matthews and other albums) is deployed to greatest effect on such strong songs as the incomparable "It could have been me" and the driving, Berry-esque "New World Coming". The rest don't quite reach those heights, but they're all pretty good songs - and all brilliantly played by Bryn and the band. And what a band! - top sidesmen such as Henry Spinetti and Dave Markee are joined by Pete Wingfield to make a joyful (or at least soulful...) noise unto the Lord.
Yes, this is Christian music - but listen without prejudice and discover a true talent - who knows, you too may be playing it in 2040... I certainly will be.
Now, who's going to re-release "Bittersweet Song"?
