In some ways one knows exactly what to expect from MercyMe, skilled musicianship, solid production and the powerful heartfelt vocals of Bart Millard but this hard to get hold of collection previously sold only at Family Christian Stores locations in the US and on concert tours is still a worthwhile addition to the MercyMe catalogue. This is a collection of worship songs, with a few hymns thrown in for good measure.
