This album contains 12 songs making up more than an hour of music which is always an encouraging sign, especially when you have to spend your hard earned cash. If that was not enough, many of the songs are well known and sung in many churches today. The list includes "Jesus We Enthrone You", "Ancient Of Days" and "I Stand In Awe". When add that entire up along with Keith's voice and new arrangements in the style of Commissioned, expectation begins to run high. If we were to stop here, this album would be very good, but the sleevenotes indicate that this was recorded live at Trinity Hills Christian Centre, which is not how it sounds. It sounds much more like it was recorded in a studio with bits of a live recording added at various moments. Consequently, it loses the atmosphere of a live recording. Integrity Music have become associated with capturing splendour of live worship so well over the years that this was a big disappointment for me. Laying aside what's not there, this is still a good album for all the reasons I stated at the start of this review. Simply do not expect a truly live recording.
