In a recent interview the Newsboys’ Peter Furler was anxious to stress that this, the Newsboys’ first ever worship album, was definitely not an act of opportunistic bandwagon jumping in a market which has exploded with modern praise projects since the Delirious?/Sonicflood phenomenon. Rather, ‘Adoration’ is a veteran band’s desire to do a whole album instead of a single worship song (as on previous projects). The first response to this project is almost entirely favourable, thanks to the band’s unerring ability to craft memorable melodic hooks but even more importantly lyricist Steve Taylor’s ability to offer lyrics which go beyond stereotyped Bible paraphrases. Just catch the first song “He Reigns”, “It’s the song of the redeemed/Rising from the African plain/It’s the song of the forgiven/Drowning out the Amazon rain/The song of Asian believers/Filled with God’s holy fire/It’s every tribe, every tongue, every nation/A love song borne of a grateful choir.” I suspect this will be the Newsboys’ best selling project for years and it deserves to be.


Sample Track Listing:
1. He Reigns
2. You Are My King (Amazing Love) [Listen]
3. Great Is Your Faithfulness [Listen]
4. Take My Hands (Praises)
5. Adoration
6. In Christ Alone
7. Lord (I Dont Know) - Live
8. It Is You - Live
9. Father, Blessed Father
10. Hallelujah

What a great cd to have! I just luv the whole thing!
I'll never forget the first song I heard, was actually the video version for "He Reigns";awesome video shoot. This song is so alive with springing worship; I cannot sit still! I cannot say enough what this song does to lift my spirit within: wtg Peter & Steve! The follow up "YOU Are My King (Amazing Love)" just gets a hold of me; what a beautiful song. I really like the newly recorded version of "Praises "(i.e. Take My Hands). Peter Furler's vocals shine out wonderfully!
The cd title "Adoration" is another great notable song.
I just love the words to "In CHRIST Alone"; another song of beauty:"fullness of GOD in helpless babe.....scorned by the ones He came to save...".
I'll never forget when I saw the concert to promote the cd "Thrive"; the song "It Is YOU", what a great worship song! (words and all). I love Peter Furler's last 2 songs on the cd, especially closer "Hallelujah".
"Hallelujah" was for then and is for now!: I would have liked to hear more of the song, too short in the recording. WE KNOW THAT THE GLORIOUS DAY IS COMING! wtg guys, GOD Bless! - Don
