"One Way" is all about Jesus being the only one who will always be with and protect us. "Light" asks Him to show us the way to go. Living for Jesus is the topic in "Evermore." "Open Up The Heavens" and let Your glory fall they sing in the fourth track. A quieter track, "Take All of Me" pleads with Jesus to take our hearts and lives. A female soloist begins "Always" singing about God's wonder in the Earth. "Sing (Your Love)" is about the darkness that is now gone. To throw ourselves at the mercy of God, "Where the Love Lasts Forever." Seeking more than we know, seeking more of God, in "Consuming Fire." "More Than Life" is the love we have for God. The unfailing blood is sung about in "Jesus's Blood." Being a light to the nations and living for God in "Shine For You." "Soldier" is a call to all Christians about becoming bolder, about standing on God's promises so the world won't be able to stop you. "I don't care what they say about me, it's all right" is the first line in "All Day."
These songs are incredible. They slow down in the middle of the CD for those who like slightly softer music. But they pick back up at the end, and end with a flourish with "All Day." The last two songs, "Soldier" and "All Day" are my personal favorites.
If you are a fan of previous Hillsong albums, this one HAS to go into your collection. If you've never heard Hillsong before, this is a great place to start. It's not soft worship music... there are loud drums and electric guitars. But the artists have an amazing passion for Christ which comes across in this CD. There is a similar CD to this one, Hillsong's Look To You, which was probably recorded at the same concert. I also recommend that one.
The lyrics are perfect to help you focus on prayer and worship, and the instrumentation allows that. I love it, and out of my 400 cd's, I play this one more than anything.
By the way, I'm a mom with a teenager.
Hillsong is my fav worship.
My reasons for purchasing this cd/dvd pack were not entirely pure to begin with. I purchased it mostly to ogle Marty Sampson of whom I saw a video of singing the standout song 'Evermore'. He's very talented vocally, plays the guitar and sings mostly with his eyes closed.
Also, United being connected to the popular praise and worship singer; Darlene Zschech didnt hurt their reputation either.
At the first few listens, the songs can be loud, all over the place and slightly aggravating but once you get used to them, they are indeed a prize.
The arrangements do strike one as amatuerish but when you really get into it, the sincerity of their love for and desire to praise Jesus can not be doubted.
Also, very important is that the focus of their songs is on praising God. There is no me or I involved. It's totally all about Him and that is quite rare in today's praise and worship.
Their voices are very good and they are talented and vibrant. The songs are mostly rock oriented.
The cd/dvd value is also great. The bonus dvd is fun to watch and you are infected by the energy of this band.
It's a good way to perk yourself up and praise God who is more than deserving of our praise.
