On With All Our Love the Children perfected their sound not a clunker in the bunch, with all four contributing to the song-writing. Some of their best moments are on slower delicately constructed songs like ‘Under The Shadow (Of My Wings)’, ‘You’re A Gift’ and ‘Where Went The Days’, each of which is aglow with the group’s fragile harmonies and sincere creative presentation. Hand-clapping folk-rockers like ‘If You’l1 Take My Hand’ show the group equally adept in a livelier format. ‘Be Ye Still’ throws in an accordion to melancholy effect. In fact quite a few of the tunes are on the somber side. Influences of The Carpenters are present throughout, especially in the background vocals. String orchestration is used effectively on ‘Can I Show You’ and the saxophone-enhanced ‘Two Lives, One Moment’. Pastor Chuck Smith steps in for a brief narration toward the end of ‘The Crucifixion’, a convicting account of the cross. If I had to pick out my favorite of all their albums, this would be the one.
