Mixed Feelings

Conceptually, there is nothing wrong with a worship album...primarily because there is nothing wrong with worship. I was, however, disappointed by the hackneyed and shallow lyrics found in most of the songs. Beyond that, though, the sound is really not bad. "Hallelujah 2000", makes my heart both flinch and smile. If it were an instrumental track, however, I would have considered it well written. The one high point: Psalm 19 is an amazing song, musically and lyrically. When you get your lyrics from somewhere else (The Bible), you may have less chance of lyrical failure. Besides this, Code of Ethics is writing new electronic music this year. If you didn't like this album, check Barry's myspace before you make your final judgment.

New record label, new sound

I don't knock Barry Blaze for trying something new with this praise project. (its a lot different) The first 6 songs are quite excellent and have aged better than the Soulbait project. (especially good: Father, Psalm 19, & Move Me)

Good production with little lyrical support

The production on this album is very good. Unforunately, this album falls short in the way of songwriting and lyrical style. I admire his passion for the Lord and his desire to integrate musical worship and electronica. However, it's evident to me he tried too hard, giving the album a gimmicky and instantly dated sound. Worship should flow, sometimes with slight stimulation, but should never be forced. I am interested to hear some more recent work from this artist since the realm of "Christian" music has since learned that it's okay to have appeal in the secular market.
