Awaken To LoveNever For Nothing
After releasing two singles from the album, Ian’s new release is finally here. Listening, it’s as if he’s found a new depth to his writing, as he hinted with the single “Dream Again.” A renewed relationship with God sees less of the uptempo tracks and more medium paced songs than previously. “High Wire” is one of the exceptions, as we hear what I like to call the charismatic sound and excitement of multi instruments. “Great is the Lord” is a very simple song, while Ian’s reworking of the Beatles’ song “All You Need Is Love” is a very interesting move. On “No Longer I”, it’s a declaration that Christ lives in him, and the chorus becomes almost chant-like. Musically, the song begins quite quietly but towards the end, reaches a great crescendo. I liked the guitar riffs on the Talking Head’s influenced “Coming Home”, while the building rhythms on “My Hope” are equally as enjoyable. God’s promise on “Not Alone” is there for all to hear, as Ian sings; “You are not alone. Even though you’re crushed, you’re not forgotten.” “Deeper” has a very catchy tune, whilst the closing “Safe” has an atmospheric feel about it. Concentrating once more on the theme of a deeper relationship with God and knowing His presence in your life, the songs fit well with the rest of the album. I must admit, that this album took me two or three plays to appreciate, but that time was well worth it. 9/10
Awaken To LoveLouder Than The Music
I am so impressed with the number of top quality tracks on this album. I have fallen in love with this album from the first listen. Yet even after listen number two and three, and even listen number fourteen, I am still enjoying this album. Most albums these days would love to have at least two tracks of this quality on their album, Awaken To Love has plenty of top songs. What really stands Ian Yates' album above others is his vocals. His passionate, honest and warm voice creates a safe place, and you always feel at ease in his company and that doesn't distract you from the main purpose of an album like this, to bring you closer to God. This album is the best of Ian Yates in songwriting, singing, musicianship and brave creativity. His last outing, DNA, was a firm favourite of mine for a very long time (still is). I actually think Awaken to Love could even surpass DNA as a new Jono favourite album. 5/5
Awaken To LoveOne Man In The Middle
The first glimmers of the quality of the new project were seen in June's UK Christian Singles chart from Astepfwd.com which saw Ian reach number 1 with the leading track "High Wire". So it just remains for you to buy the album. I promise you it will be a treat for your ears, but also for your soul. You will be comforted, lifted up, begin to dream again and you will be able to soar in worship as you "Awaken To Love". 10/10
