Hillsong favourites including "You Are My World," "Irresistible" and the title track "Forever", all in an instrumental format. I found it pleasant enough, but not compelling listening. I think I may have benefited more from it if the song lyrics had been printed on the sleeve, instead of it being filled with advertisements for various Hillsongs products and events. As it was, I was alternatively trying to remember the words to the ones I knew, and wondering when the tune was going to start on the others. As for the musical style, my wife walked in during my first play through and kept expecting one of the tunes to turn into a Dire Straits number! It's OK I suppose, if you are a Hillsongs (or Dire Straits) fan, but there are more creative and original instrumental albums out there.
