Personally I'd always preferred the more youth-orientated Hillsong United to the more adult (and MOR) big church version. The three albums boxed together here, 1999's 'Everyday', 2001's 'Best Friend' and 2002's 'King Of Majesty', were released when the youth offshoot albums were still being put out under the confusing moniker United Live. And pretty darn good they are too. Enough overdrive guitar to keep all but the most speaker stack-obsessed youth happy while several of the songs here have since become acknowledged as contemporary worship classics. Even the occasional moments of soft worship work well. Buy with confidence.
