This, I think, is the eighth live recording of Hillsongs Australia praise and worship, so they have to be doing something right don't they? Listening to Hillsongs is almost the ultimate worship experience and can leave one drained, but still wanting for more, being carried on waves of worship ranging from the exuberant to the gently devotional. Reading the track titles lets you know that you're in for something special, "That's What We Came Here For", "Church On Fire", and the title track "Touching Heaven Changing Earth", the singing being fervent, emotive and involving - then dropping down to the slower almost personal one-to-one me-to-God level. Track arrangement is good, with most tracks blending to provide a smooth transfer to the next - once you start to play this CD, you'll want to play it to the end. Through it all the inimitable Darlene Zschech is in control, at times I feel with a little undue vocal prominence, but then, she did write the words and music to most of the songs. As I said at the beginning - this is perhaps the penultimate worship experience, I'm not in Heaven yet, and I can't afford a Qantas air ticket to Sydney.
