The same rough & raw sound, penetrating lyrics and beautiful voices (lead and background vocals) you're already familiar with are here once again, with new and familiar material. The tempo of these songs are not as fast as some of their songs like "Sky Falls Down," but if you're a Third Day fan, you won't be disappointed. For folks who've only heard a few of their singles on the radio, you'll be happy to know that all of their music is of the same caliber of those few songs that get radio play. Easy on the ears and great rockin' music. I highly recommend this disc.
As with any live recordings, the guitar and bass parts vary slightly from the original songs, but that's usually a good thing. With Third Day Offerings, you get to hear more of Tai's great bass work (tight tone, too!) and Mark's and Brad's more energetic/ hyper live playing styles. Most important, however, is the reason this album was made: for Worship. It really is great to hear all your favorite Thrid Day songs being sung together with a live audience in praise and worship to the Lord.
You get to hear a song done originally for Conspiracy No. 5 (one of my favorite Third Day CDs) with the same dark mystery that colors most of that project. On Offerings, there's a secret track at the end of #11. It's cool little acoustic tune (almost sounds like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers turned Christian!) that comes in at 6:32.
If you don't have the other Thrid Day CDs, this is a must-buy. If you do, it's still very much worth it for the new songs that are on here.
The project starts with "King of Glory" an original song that answers the question "Who is this King of Glory?" It's easy to get caught up in the praise offered here. "These Thousand Hills" is next. While not original, it is the first time they've recorded it. This one takes off from the idea that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Similarly covered on this CD is Bob Dylan's "Saved" and Michael W. Smith's "Agnus Dei." This last one gets the live treatment since they had previously recorded it for the EXODUS CD that Rocketown Records put out a few years previously.
Mixed in are some live tracks. The first of these is actually the third song, "Your Love Oh Lord." I've loved this song which flows out of considering God's love and faithfulness to us since the first time I heard it. "My Hope is You" is a worship based cry of trust in the only Person we truly can trust in this life. Both of these songs would work well in a church service as well as on this album.
The album closes with my favorite Third Day song of all time, "Love Song." (Ok, so there's a hidden track after it, but I'm not counting that here.) This song, written from Jesus' point of view, talking about all Jesus has done to save us still stops me every time I hear it.
Third Day's passion for worship God comes through in every song, making it easy to worship along with them. This is a standout in the modern worship field that will be enjoyed over and over again.
Lead singer, Mac Powell, uses his deep, rich voice throughout the CD to give the CD a "Majestic" sound. The first song, "King of Kings," starts with "Who is this King of glory with strength and majesty and wisdom beyond measure, the gracious King of Kings." Mac Powell was born to sing these words.
The energy level that this band puts out is incredible. You don't even want to sing to it; you just want to sit in silence. At the beggining of the first track, which is recorded live, Mac Powell says "I hope you didn't come here hoping for a Third Day concert. I hope you came for much, much more. Cause we gonna have us a church service tonight."
Unlike most worship albums, these songs have a faster, stronger beat. People who enjoy worship music, but seem to be bored by it's slowness should buy this CD. If I could have given this CD a rating over 10, I would have. I highly reccomend this CD for anyone seeking a closer relationship to God. These songs put you in the mood to worship God.
