One Way
Holy Preservatives

Album length: 8 Tracks: 27 Minutes, 43 Seconds
Street Date: 2001

With Worship music reigning supreme in churches and youth rallies galore, younger and younger people seem to be coming out of the woodwork to try setting their own tone on to the ever-present scene. "One Way" is one of these bands; working on a sound and following to call theirs. With Holy Preservations, time is definitely on their side.

"All About You" begins in an old dc Talk fashion but heads into a repetitive Jars of Clay type chorus while "Let Everything That Has Breath" begins the Worship cover trend. "Holy Preservations" brings a small Third Day feel with some Southern rock flavor while "Hungry" adds another cover. Front man Lane Wood's lyrical ability shines in "Nonexistent" for a mellow groove that is truly a bright spot. "I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever" is always a highlight for any Worship album and One Way keeps that fact alive while "You're There" ends on what sounds like something any Youth Group would definitely get down to.

This is a nice Worship-filled debut. With all three members still in high school, a bright future is to be had. This is nothing new, but definitely something not to pass up. The vocals and musicianship are very strong and when they find that sound to call their own, this band will only be going one way to the top.
