Recorded live in Seoul, South Korea, this is the latest from America's most enduring worship songsmiths. It contains some of Paul's best known songs, like "Open The Eyes Of My Heart" and "Hosanna" while Baloche's vocals get increasingly more confident as the album progresses. However, there are a couple of weak spots. "Rock Of Ages", for example, suffers from a poor vocal performance and insubstantial lyrics and even powerhouse drumming and tasty lead guitar can't rescue it. As the album leads onto "Open The Eyes Of My Heart" Paul steps up a gear with the congregation singing enthusiastically along to Paul's classic song. One of the most beautiful tracks is "Offering", mainly thanks to the clean tone of the keys and guitar, while Brenton Brown provides distinctive lead vocals for "Our God Saves", a clear highlight. With a powerful rendition of "How Great Thou Art" to close, this is an atmospheric live worship experience.
