Dated album| Posted October 28, 2008
This albums sound is very dated and nothing really stands out on this disc. I like some of SCC songs but I just couldnt get into this album that sounds like early 80s ripoffs of some secular artists.

I remember that I didn't buy this CD till I was already an established fan of SCC, but it has one of the greatest Christian songs of all time: "My Redeemer is Faithful and True"
