As most people now know, United is the youth praise offshoot of the world famous Hillsong church in Sydney, Australia. Produced by Joel Houston, this album was recorded live at Encounterfest in October 2003 and features a wide variety of songs from upbeat rock praise to quiet meditational songs which wouldn't be out of place on a Hillsong album. Musically there is not much to make it stand out from the many other live worship CDs in the market, although 'More Than Life' does comes with a DVD featuring footage from the overseas worship tour, behind the scenes rehearsals and interviews. Overall it is a professionally made project but hardly breaks new ground in youth worship.
