What was previously an annual tour of North American college campuses has finally broken out into a world tour, albeit with the same Christocentric focus and youthful exuberance. Passion describe themselves as a movement of young people inspired to change the world in Jesus' name, and this is their soundtrack. Passion's worship leader mainstays are Chris Tomlin, David Crowder and Charlie Hall who are joined here by Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and Kristian Stanfill. The compilation is bursting out of its case with 14 of their best tracks, four music videos filmed at a huge stadium and two talks from Louie Giglio. If you are not familiar with Passion, this is the best introduction you can get save going to one of the events (assuming you fit the criteria to get in, being a student aged 18 to 25). The CD contains their best work, such as Chris Tomlin's "How Great Is Our God", David Crowder's "No One Like You" and Charlie Hall's "Marvelous Light". The pinnacle of the compilation is the final song video that features the four worship leaders together being enveloped in a visual representation of the Glory of God.
