Filmed live on 21st September at Gateway Church, Southlake, Texas, this is an impressive showcase of church on a grand scale, with a 20-piece worship band accompanied by two large choirs encircling the band. This DVD leads the viewer in 15 worship songs including "New Doxology", "Alabaster Jar", "Real", and "Revelations Song". It is full of uptempo tracks to get the worshiper jumping and calm, reflective songs to allow the worshipper to relax with God. A very effective track is "Real", opening with an amazing delayed guitar riff, with pace driven by the drums while the whole praise band jumps around the stage, as if completely lost in worship. Later on in the set "Alabaster Jar" with its slow pace works very well in enticing the worshiper to come into God's presence with its opening piano chords and slide guitar. This song is followed by a powerful reprise song "We Cry Out". Overall this is a hugely effective DVD.
