This worship collection has a great mellow start with "Simply Worship", which seems a change of direction from some of the previous "proclamation-style" offerings, and therefore this is an album of pure reflective worship rather than uptempo praise. With songs from Tanya Riches, Reuben Morgan, Russell and Darlene Zschech (to name a few), this album is bound to have some gems on it. Though musical variety is a little lacking, there is an instrumental piece which is refreshing in a climate of lyrical worship songs. The lyrics of any of the songs tend to concentrate on the relationship between the worshipper and the Father, and the feelings that emanate from this. It's good to see Hillsongs move from their stereotypical live albums and the production on this live set is effortlessly smooth but the lack of variety stops this from appealing beyond the Australian church's existing enthusiasts.
