Australia's worship collective has reaped heaps of praise and tons of sales across the world. This release recorded live during spring 2015 Awakening conference in Melbourne is a CD/DVD package and offers 15 high energy rock-fuelled devotional tracks and eight live renditions captured on the DVD. The first track "Intro" does exactly what it says on the can and is the perfect lead into this kind of worship event. A clarion call that builds a sense of anticipation speedily transitions into the hurtling dynamism of the title track, the dazzling keyboards mooring another anthemic rally cry. "Nobody Like You" builds on a similar foundation while "Home" offers a moment of quiet reflection, slowing the pace with a heartfelt congregation-friendly ballad a refreshing listen. "Just One Touch" continues in the same vein, gorgeous guitar riffs and sweeping keyboards build a perfect setting for the wholehearted lyric venerating the name of Jesus. "Born To Praise" hits its target of urban pop, gospel and hip-hop flowing through, with unswerving accuracy showcasing the Planetshakers range and variety. In a fitting climax "Jesus Is Lord (Prayer)" develops the live concert atmosphere whilst also turning up the worship. This captivating prayer/song packed with emotion comes just before the closing track "I Just Want You" which is as elegant as it is low key. The whole release is a roller-coaster of a worship ride. Perfectly paced at each turn to carry you through the devotion behind the music - enjoy the ride, raise your hands if you like but keep them inside the car.
