I remember how moved I was the first time I saw it. The opening segment and song medley are electrifying. A New Hallelujah DVD also has a dramatic opening (something characteristic of Smith's live performances) but it doesn't quite reach the same level of excitement.
It was also inspiring on Worship to see and hear 15,000 young people enthusiastically worshipping God on some classic contemporary praise and worship songs. A New Hallelujah is set in a larger venue (Joel Osteen's church) with a more subdued audience.
MWS set the bar high on that first release. What it lacked technically it made up for in passion. However, in some ways, A New Hallelujah DVD is more satisfying. It's a little more artistic. Some songs have more depth lyrically and musically, and it's technically superior as far as the stage, lighting, sound and camera work. For those who are tired of the rapid MTV-style movement often seen in concert videos, this has a welcome relaxed pacing.
One reason the first DVD was such a phenomenon is that some of the songs, though simple, were classics. This DVD comes close to that on songs like "Mighty to Save." Smith is also in fine form on "Deep in Love With You," a signature MWS ballad addressed directly to God. Another highlight is seeing Uganda's African Children's Choir sing and dance in their colorful clothing.
It's hard to replicate a prior experience. It's best to approach this as something new rather than a continuation of an earlier event. A New Hallelujah may not be as moving, but it is rewarding for those who appreciate excellence.
The music, video, sound quality and the flow of the concert are all outstanding. I have already watched it several times. With my upconverting DVD player over HDMI, it has near-HD quality. The videography is very well done. It always contributes and never detracts from the music.
The only things I wish they had added is options for on-screen lyrics and the ability end the concert after the 14th song (Where the CD ends). The remainder is more of an encore.
I liked the behind the scenes extras. You realize how much effort goes into capturing a live concert for video.
