Eight songs concisely capture a series of journeys through the Holy Land and describe raw encounters with the people living there today. Jews, Palestinians, Christians, and Muslims are caught up in the songs' search for peace, justice, and reconciliation. Polished, hard-hitting lyrics fleshed out in smooth melodic vocals from the two Jonnys, Baker and Birch, and the seductively sweet voice of Laura MacGregor accompany moody trip hop beats and some seriously funky basslines. This is an album of substance both lyrically and musically, that grows with repeated listening.
