Following on from the huge success of 2010's 'Born Again' and with Michael Tait now sounding like he's been with the band for years, this worship set is again produced by Seth Mosley. The album opens with the strong "God's Not Dead (Like A Lion)", composed by Daniel Bashta, that is underpinned by impressive drumming and guitar work that give way to allow Michael's vocals to emphasize the message of the chorus. The track would also not be out of place in dc Talk's 'Supernatural', having a similar style and also featuring another one-time dc Talk member Kevin Max, providing some beautiful harmonies. Max returns to add his vocals to the closing track "I Am Second" that starts softly with an acoustic guitar followed by vocals and strings and builds into a powerful ending. Other standout tracks include "Savior Of The World", "Forever Reign", "More Than Enough" and "Mighty To Save" (which despite being on the previous 'Born Again' is well worth another outing). Overall an edgy worship album that is worth the listen.
