I like an album that declares its intentions from the opening track, and so it is with this live set from the worship team emanating from the Texas mega Gateway Church. Featuring driving male vocals and powerful percussion "Every Day I Live" is exuberant worship personified. That sense of confidence and commitment is maintained throughout the CD. The mid tempo "Sun And Shield" is outstanding and the slow "Holy Holy Holy" is one of the most prayerful songs here. But it gets better - on the fourth song a soulful female vocalist takes over on the beautiful "My Everything" - "Rendered speechless by your beauty, Lord I'm blown away". One song in particular, the power balled "When I'm With You" acts as a kind of theme song for the recording - "I was made for loving you, I was made to worship/I was made to give you praise, all of my days O Lord". The penultimate track "Victorious" has the makings of an anthem. All in all a good set, so it's a pity they didn't add another three tracks to make a full album.
