After the unprecedented success of 'Burning Lights', recorded live at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Colorado, it has now been released in a 'Deluxe' edition packaged with a DVD of the worship leader's sell out show at the picturesque venue. The CD is the same as the original release which received a Cross Rhythms 10 square rating while the DVD contains the additional songs "Indescribable", "Our God", "Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)", "Revelation Song" and "How Great Is Our God". Missing on the DVD are album songs "Crown Him", "Jesus, Son Of God", "Countless Wonders", "Thank You For Saving Me" and "Shepherd Boy". The worship concert conveys an electric atmosphere, with Chris's humour weaving its way through the evening. Louie Giglio's full 45-minute talk is also included, which may not receive so much repeated playing as the music, but is worth watching. I felt that the video quality lacked a little given the technology available today, but this should not distract from this great record of an amazing night in a fantastic setting.
