The commercial debut CD from the worship band from one of America's fastest growing mega-churches contains 12 songs where every sentence draws you to clearly-stated Gospel messages. High production values give this a polished sound more closely associated with studio albums. Starting with the energetic "We Are", listeners are presented with a balanced mix of meditative and active worship songs, ending with the gentle but powerful title track. Youthful congregations will connect easily with the performance styles here. Older believers, however, should not overlook this album as there are some strong songs here which would work without the bombastic rock-driven approach. A good example of this is "Arise" which brings to mind the Christmas hymn "O Come All You Faithful". This is also an album that you can buy for personal worship as it features praise and prayer, songs to shout from the rooftops and songs to sing on your knees. Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, Highlands Worship could well establish themselves as an international worship brand.
