In 2002, Jeff Deyo (the original voice behind Sonicflood) came forth with Saturate, a worship project that served to make a connection to previous works while forging new ground. Jeff's debut solo project showcases nine original worship songs written by Deyo and the band, along with modern versions of the hymn "I'd Rather Have Jesus" and worship favorites, "This Is My Desire" and "More Love, More Power."

One Of His Best| Posted January 29, 2008
Jeff Deyo was the heart and soul behind the original Sonicflood, and Saturate continued where Sonicflood left off, providing a worthy follow-up record that fans did not see with Resonate. It's impossible not to listen to this record and be recaptured by the brilliance of the former frontman of the band that changed the face of modern worship. The album includes several dialogue interludes"prayers, sermonettes and the like. Although well-intentioned, these quickly become the CD's only weakness, tending to interrupt the praise flow more than they facilitate it. Still, the songs' music and passion more than make up for that minor detail. Jeff penned 9 new worship songs that included "Let It Flow" and "Satisfy." tobyMac also is arresting on background vocals for the blazing remake of "More Love, More Power." A surprising favorite is the orchestral-rock cover of the classic hymn "I'd Rather Have Jesus." Originally written in the 30's by Rhea Miller and Geaorge Shea, "I'd Rather Have Jesus" is a very rocking tune that keeps it's hymnal roots while still sporting a modern edge. This is done in what seems to be the new fad of redoing old hymns. Much like "Before The Throne Of God Above" from Sonicpraise. The album closes with a duet with Rebecca St. James on the song "Sing For You." There is simply not one miss on this album as each song provides great music and more importantly a great message. Jeff's latter albums have not come close to duplicating this release.

I bought this cd after being at one of Deyo`s concerts. This cd made me feel like I was there. Every song is amazing! I love the duet with Rebecca St. James. Great modern worship!
