Product Description

Amazon.com

An impressive thread of praise and worship runs through the career of Michael W. Smith. After all, he's penned two of today's finest modern praise songs ("Great Is the Lord" and "Agnus Dei"), and he was the creative genius behind Exodus, a brilliant collection of worship material. Yet that same artistic spirit seems sadly lacking on Worship, Smith's first solely praise and worship release. All parts are assembled, with Smith on vocals and keyboards, and an all-star choir of Amy Grant, Phillips, Craig & Dean, Chris Rice, Cindy Morgan, and others backing him on this live release. But outside of a few selected tracks ("Let It Rain" and "Draw Me Close"), Worship falls flat. Smith's decision to cover the day's most popular praise songs and not focus on new material of his own weakens the record's impact. In fact, "Purified," one of two studio tracks on the release, was cowritten by Smith and his wife, and it's the CD's brightest moment. While Worship is not a forgettable release, it is, unfortunately, predictable. --Michael Lyttle

I would like to disagree with the Editorial review posted by Michael Lyttle. I think the comments made by him about Smitty's talent are definitely on track. However, his comments saying the album was flat and predictable are way off track.
I think Smitty chose correctly by only including one of his original songs on the CD and not perform it with the others. The purpose of the concert was to record live a meaningful Praise and Worship event. Other artists were giving of their time with their recording companies blessing to help create a moment in time that would move other's. How could Smitty selfishly do something like play more of his own music when other's were giving selflessly? He was selfless as well.
That intent was more than well met. This CD is absolutely awe inspiring. The way the songs flowed into each other from beginning to end could not have been more well thought out. I still get misty eyed when I listen to certain songs and not just Let it rain or Draw me close.
From the beginning with the two girls reading scripture to the ending with More Love More Power, the presence of the Holy Spirit was obviously present. How else could you explain the powerful blending of artists who have never performed together as a group? They came together the day of the concert to perform. To my knowledge that was the only time they met.
The way the voices flowed and meshed is nothing less than God planned. Think about it. No one voice other than Smitty's really stood out and that couldn't be helped because he had his own microphone at the piano. His blended in as well.
Each song has hit me harder than when I heard the orginal artist perform it. I take this CD with me whenever I am helping my landlady out by painting or cleaning an apt.

Michael W Smith has always wanted to record a worship album like this. On the EXODUS project he worked to create a multi-artist collaboration that focused on creating modern worship songs for the church. On his new album, WORSHIP, he is able to actually lead a live worship service that absolutely succeeds in putting the focus on where it's supposed to be: God.
The song line-up is a good one. Newer tracks like "The Heart Of Worship" and "Open the Eyes of My Heart" are sung right along side classic songs like "Awesome God" and "More Love, More Power." Smith has led worship at his church for years, and that experience shines through here as he proves to be most adept at taking the spotlight off of himself (and the "all-star" cast in the choir) and directing it towards the One who was being sung to. The album flows well and though it's not really a "modern" worship album (musically it is more traditional) it's got all the passion and genuine spirit associated with the modern worship movement. The studio tracks included as a bonus are also superb (and Smith writes with his wife, Debbie, on "Purified," for the first time in years), and sit well along side previous Smith classics like "Agnus Dei" and "Great Is the Lord."
If you're a fan of Michael's you're going to pick this up automatically. Even if you're not, you should give it a listen. It doesn't rock and there's nothing particularly innovative here, but it's a real worship experience that brings you into the presence of God, and that's what it's really all about. WORSHIP is definitely one of the best of a growing number of worship album options. FIVE STARS.

Well, he finally did it. Michael W. Smith's first worship album. And, not even surprisingly, it's THE best collection of praise and worship songs I have ever heard. Every single offering on this album is absolutely beautiful. The first time I heard the opening track, it stirred my blood and sent a shiver up my spine, and the only reason I wasn't clapping along with the crowd on the CD was because I was driving at the time. Michael's ability to take an already great worship song and turn it into a masterpiece is unparalleled. I only wish I could have been in the chapel at Carpenter's Home when this blessed event took place. His amazing piano is joined by a wonderful band and a choir that reads like a Christian music All-Star roster; Amy Grant, Phillips, Craig, and Dean, Chris Rice, Out of Eden, members of Plus One, Cindy Morgan, and many others all contribute to this powerful experience. A few of the songs on this CD aren't very well-known, but by the end they'll be forever etched on your memory, thanks to this ensemble. "Unforgettable" is an understatement. You'll be inspired, lifted up, brought to your knees, and shaken to your foundation, all in one hour. When I heard the chorus for "Let It Rain", I cried for the first time in over ten years--it's that moving. I could go on for days about this album, but the review has to end sometime. Get this CD and listen for yourself...it could very well change your life.

I had always been a fan of MWS since his early works, but I'd never been much of a "worship album" buyer. Most of the time, recorded worship music failed to evoke the same sense of reverency and spiritual connection as the live experience. All that changed for me when MWS released this album. Not only did he bring his incredible mixture of professionalism and humility to this medium, he also set the standard for worship music- both in the professional venue and in churches- and everyone else has been trying to match it since then.

It is also interesting to note- with no small amount of irony- that this album was released on September 11, 2001. I'm sure that the news of its release was eclipsed by the events of that tragic and fateful day, but its release on that day was noteworthy nonetheless, as it provided comfort and healing and a refocusing for many Americans of faith, just as it did for me. It's especially ironic to hear Smitty's spoken segue, unknowingly recorded months earlier to 9/11, to "Draw Me Close": "...I think we're just living in a day and age where we just want to grab ahold onto something... and cry out to God."

Of all the tracks, two stand out as especially powerful. Unlike a previous reviewer, I found the live track, "Let It Rain", to be particularly touching, especially at the center section during the reading of Psalm 97. It sends shivers up my spine and brings tears to my eyes to hear the people in that auditorium shouting praise to God in one voice in response to His Word, and it segues beautifully into "Agnus Dei" to complete the declaration of God's glory.

The other powerful song is "Purified".
