Fantastic! Adam Crossley has such a smooth voice and exquisite tone. The lyrical content and melodic rise in the chorus highlights this in an uplifting and inspiring way. Beautifully crafted tune with lots of commercial appeal. If this isn't a contendor in the top 3, I'd be very surprised. Two big thumbs up!
