As most people now know, United is the youth praise offshoot of the world famous Hillsong church in Sydney, Australia. Produced by Joel Houston, this album was recorded live at Encounterfest in October 2003 and features a wide variety of songs from upbeat rock praise to quiet meditational songs which wouldn't be out of place on a Hillsong album. Musically there is not much to make it stand out from the many other live worship CDs in the market, although 'More Than Life' does comes with a DVD featuring footage from the overseas worship tour, behind the scenes rehearsals and interviews. Overall it is a professionally made project but hardly breaks new ground in youth worship.

This cd rocks! It's the first Hillsong United cd i heard and I just fell in love with Hillsong United and got all their other cds. This is a great cd to do praise and worship with and I especially love to dance to the song "All Day" because it's got an awesome rhythm and awesome bass guitar part. Thank God for the talents he's given the United team so they could praise his name in all the earth. God Bless Hillsong United!
