These days, Integrity pump out so many worship albums that finding anything that stands out from the usual ear candy is a rare experience. Thankfully this is one of those rare moments although I wasn't expecting it. The hymn-like "Let The Peace Of God Reign" which opens this album had me reaching for the remote control! The second song, "I Believe The Promise", is where the action starts and this becomes an all singing, all juggling, all dancing worship album! Darlene "Shout To The Lord" Zschech leads the crowd in a passionate worship experience from Australia's Hills Christian Life Centre and it soon takes off into orbit. The presence of the title song, one of the current faves with the Spring Harvest crowd, will no doubt draw in the casual worship buyer but there is so much beyond that to grab the listener. "People Like Us" bounces along before the pace slackens for "Jesus Jesus" and a chance to catch your breath! A strong mixture of ballads and up tempo songs but none of them are as strong as the classic "Shout To The Lord".
