This is a hugely impressive memento of Casting Crowns' Lifesong Tour which drew more than 357,000 people and, according to the statistics, brought "43,000 salvation responses." Clearly Mark Hall and his musical compatriots have something special and this celebration of powerful pop rock worship hits home. The CD portion opens with powerful versions of "Lifesong" and "Praise You In This Storm", both of which were number one radio singles in the US, while the track "Does Anybody Hear Her?" is currently getting major American radio exposure. The seven-song CD also has a bonus song, "Set Me Free". It's the DVD disc which will probably attract the most attention, though. As well as a 5.1 SurroundSound mix there is a short form video of "Does Anybody Hear Her?" and a 30-minute documentary of a day in the life of a busy band which portrays Mark as a Godly man as he juggles fatherhood, ministry and touring. All in all, this is a release which many Casting Crown supporters will want.
