When taking only the music of this album Missouri-based worship leader at face value it comes across as vague and confused as it meanders, perplexingly, between soulful, passionate worship and hip-hop praise a little like Toby Mac. Some of the worship sounds a little like Robin Mark with some Celtic stylings and a penny whistle on "Hallelujah" and "Always Faithful". Cory's voice is not too dissimilar to Matt Thiessen of Relient K while thematically the lyrics are clearly intended to channel the listener's focus toward God rather than toward the music itself with plenty of Bible passages quoted, in particular the Psalms. Cory also uses his gift of tongues in his music. The clear focus on the Godhead enables one to overcome the jarring stylistic changes. And the song "Hallelujah" is a contemplative gem which would go down a storm in the global Church, if they ever got to hear it.

I really enjoyed Corey worshiping the Lord. My passion is to worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth and we need more music like this to draw souls back to Christ. Worship the Master of Music not the music and I feel this music does that. Glory be to God. The Greatest artist is Jesus Christ and He rocks! keep letting the Holy Spirit use you and thanks for your encouragement hope I can come to studio one day heard you are looking singers for the Lord that is my main focus and the only reason I sing and I pray one day He uses me to minister to the world and minister by using the gift of voice He has given me:):)
