Like, I suspect, many other fans of Delirious? the thought of yet another live album from the Littlehampton wonders hardly set the pulse racing. Yet in truth this is a truly magnificent CD and DVD combo with the DVD in particular showing the band in breathtaking form. On the DVD their mix of songs, taking in everything from "History Maker" to "Paint The Town Red", makes for a magnificent set while their performance here before 5,000 excited fans at Chicago's famed Willow Creek mega-church is truly riveting. Probably my favourite moment is when Martin begins the song "Miracle Maker" on his knees though the "holy" climax of that song with the word in numerous languages flashed on the screen is also highly effecting. The audio CD is beautifully recorded and the compilers have wisely shied away from songs which have appeared on other Delirious? live albums. Again, tracks like "Take Off My Shoes", "Majesty" and "All This Time" are deeply moving. If you are only going to buy one worship project this year, this is one you need to consider.

9 out of 10 is generous, leaving only 1 more star for Sgt. Pepper, Ok Computer and the Joshua Tree. It's not in that league. It's good, using new songs because we've all got the other live album, and the new material is great. I wish it wasn't in a mega-church (can anything else in modern Christianity be more opposite to Jesus Himself?)
Any weaknesses on this album trace back to the studio albums, but the strengths of this are the passion and sweat of a live gig. 7/10
