In past years there has perhaps been a tendency towards a production line mentality in the area of praise and worship, a sort of "Now That's What I Call Worship Vol 59" syndrome. However, to classify this recording from the Hills Christian Life Centre. Australia as mere mass produced product would be a travesty. The CD kicks off with the title track as a good warm up and then it's into full on R&B with "Joy In The Holy Ghost" which is in simple terms a real gem. the Hillsongs choir storm their way through the song making it one of a few moments of genuine greatness. Other songs that arc worth a mention are "And That My Soul Knows Very Well" and "Thank You, Lord". The level of professionalism in the singers and musicians is frighteningly high and one of the things that comes over in the recording is that not only are they very good but they also are really enjoying what they are doing. Overall, the album comes across as a genuine act of worship, well recorded, produced and played. The only suggestion I would dare to make is that perhaps they would change the order of songs - four slow ballads side by side made me reach for the fast forward button but do not let my personal preference put you off buying this great CD.
