The first Planetshakers conference took place in 1997. Since then the Australian worship team serving the event have gained an international following through 25 albums (including 14 live recordings) and numerous tours. This, their latest release, follows in the footsteps of last year's studio set 'Nothing Is Impossible'. Produced again by Joth Hunt (who leads worship on many songs here along with Sam Evans), high octane rock kicks in on track one with "Supernatural" with guitar playing that would feel at home in any rock concert. "Good To Me" could simply be described as infectious worship with a driving beat and an anthem audience response. "Do It Again" is led with drums - guaranteed to move the most complacent listener, before the chorus firmly implants itself in the brain! As on previous albums there are some atmospheric ballads here as well, the most outstanding being "Hallelujah To The Lord". The DVD accompanying this package was produced by Chuck Peterson and features seven of the songs as well as containing an extra track "Nothing Is Impossible" which features the renowned Israel Houghton. Plus there's a 22 minute documentary on the 2011 Planetshakers tour of the USA. An outstanding worship package.
