This CD does exactly what it says on the tin: 13 loud rock and roll worship songs from a dynamic new Australian youth conference. Lots of big riffs and choruses that are best heard in big tents full of people, "The Maker" being my personal favourite. With a number of different songwriters and artists, this is a varied set and not everything is anthemic. "The Wonder" is a simpler, piano-led prayer. "Just For Me" segues into a repeated refrain of "All I want is you," borrowed from the U2 song of the same name, the memorable riff creatively reinterpreted on the piano. If I had a criticism, it would be that at times the vocals aren't gritty enough to match the music. But this is a minor point on an otherwise energetic and passionate album that should give plenty of ideas to those seeking something a little more edgy for their worship set.
