I don't know who Laura Storey and Jesse Reeves are but I can state categorically that they have composed one of the GREAT worship songs of this or any era. I refer, of course, to "Indescribable" (no, it wasn't written, as many think, by Mr Tomlin though we first heard it on Chris' 'Arriving' album). His version here is a jaw-dropping opener and even betters the previously released version with a slowed down rendition which swells from voice and acoustic to a full band anthem. Nothing else on this set quite reaches the poignant majesty of "Indescribable" though this praise concert in Chris' hometown is full of gems tightly executed by Chris and his band. You actually get to hear the audience too. So if you want atmospheric versions of "Forever", "How Great Is Our God", "Famous One" this is an album which fully displays Chris' winning ways with pop rock modern worship.
