Riding a wave of Hollywood momentum, John Waller's second project made a clear case for his strengths as a songwriter. The title track, "While I'm Waiting," was featured in the surprise indie film hit Fireproof, and as a result, fans of Waller's Christian AC pop could not get new music soon enough. Waller delivered for fans with another pumped-up, electric collection. He took full advantage of his time in the spotlight by cranking up the volume and delivering more light rock mixed with elements of praise & worship, not far from the likes of MercyMe or Steven Curtis Chapman.

Even with an ample amount of upbeat fare, the album will always be remembered for its most pensive moment, the poignant and reserved title track, and its place in Christian film history.
