This album contains remixes of popular Hillsong United songs from various projects, giving them a new sound or twist in the process. The remixes from such people as Chad Howat, Black Rodeo and Family Force 5's Solomon Olds tend toward a dance and techno style providing atmospheric renditions of the songs which take each one to a new level and often enhancing the already engaging and distinctive melodies. The pulsating Tim Yagolnikov Remix of "With Everything" is layered with swirling electro rhythms and vocals which catch you up in its sound. Another highlight is the classic and inspired "Hosanna", totally transformed yet still mesmeric and the soulful HXLY KXSS Remix of "Where Feet May Fail". It is important not to judge this album with too much reference to the original tracks but to look at them presented in a new genre and you'll see their genius and inspiration. A second and third listen only serves to underline the music invention of a familiar set of songs transformed to a new level of creativity while simultaneously uplifting the soul.
