It seems that whatever Hillsong church do they do it well and to the best of their ability, and this album is no different! From the start to the finish it pulses with energy and draws a picture of a church worship environment that is vibrant and rich in quality musicians, songwriters and singers. In fact the worship and creative arts team have come up with a brilliant album with tracks that give glory to God, point the way to Jesus and affirm our faith. From "My Redeemer Lives" and "The Potter's Hand" to "Now That You're Near" and "Still", each one is there as an inspiration to join the choir and sing along to excellent lyrics recorded live at Hillsong churches in Sydney, London and Kiev. The only down point for me was some of the fade-outs were sometimes to sharp as they needed a slow fade to keep the atmosphere of the auditorium going as I was caught up with the worship - which I suppose it is all about! Great album - all 17 tracks of it, yes a single album yet pulsing with 17 tracks just waiting to bless you in the car or at home. For me the track of the album was "Shout Your Fame" as this has a great beat and is a real foot-tapper or for me a song where I can use my steering wheel as my drum! Crowd participation is spectacular!
