When I reviewed Michael's 'Worship' CD in 2001 I had the temerity to suggest that there were hundreds of worship albums already released that were better than this. But of course for huge numbers of people it was the CCM star's run through of songs from Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Rich Mullins, Paul Baloche and Lenny LeBlanc which connected with their hearts and drew them closer to God. And certainly this recording in Lakeland, Florida does have its own atmosphere and a rich sound - which comes over more powerfully on the 5.1 Surround sound mix featured on the DVD side of the Dual Disc. As well as that you've got concert footage (disappointingly of only two songs "Above All" and "Awesome God"), some over-edited interviews with Michael W Smith and Don Moen and, best of all, a short depiction of what God is doing around the world through worship. Plus, rather incongruously, the DVD offers a trailer for The Second Chance feature film.

I have dual disc copy of this Worship cd (orig. released in 2001); the flip side offers a couple songs in concert footage:to include Awesome GOD from 1998 tribute cd for the late Rich Mullins. I luv the opener, "Forever"; I have a special bond with "Draw Me Close"; this is just a beautiful song of worship; thank you Kelly Carpenter for this song, that Michael wonderfully interprets. "Above All" penned by the
artist who released it in 2000, Paul Baloche; this
is definitely a song for Michael to sing! I luv "Let it Rain"; another great song!! I also have Michael's worship concert that includes many of these songs.
GOD Bless! -Don
