Now here's something! Dynamic Australian worship and it's not Hillsong! A live worship CD that captures a huge amount of energy whilst managing to avoid any unnecessary hype. This is actually a groovier approach than Hillsong so you get some stonking stuff here including the title cut, written by main worship leader Chris O'Brien. "I'm Gonna Praise Your Name" is good and funky, blasts of horns and soulful vocals - WOW, a praise record that you really CAN dance to! Every now and again you get some huge drumbeats as a massive team of drummers lets loose and the whole thing is suddenly magnificent. There are other worship leaders too so you get to be inspired by the smokin' vocals of Katya Winspear who would give Kate Miner and Rita Springer a run for their money, and the gentler approach of Christie Moussa. Everything that a worship record should be! Uplifting when it's upbeat and inspiring when it's downbeat!

I love it! I was overwhelmed with the great music... I love singing their songs. Listening to the album, it's as if I was there joining the Live Praise and Worship. How I wish to really join them live.... Hopefully.... Keep it up! You are all an inspiration to me as a Praise and Worship Leader in our church.... Blessings to all of you... May all continue to be blessed and a blessing to others...
