Down the years the Melbourne-based conference and church has become an influential force in modern worship. This latest offering is live worship from the 2012 conference which was held at the vast Hisense Arena in Melbourne. Featuring predominantly big, punchy guitar and drums-led tracks punctuated by sections a little more thoughtful and reflective, this is similar in style and approach to Hillsong. These elements combine to deliver a collection which captures an intense, high-energy worship experience, with memorable anthems and hooky choruses. Standout tracks include "This Is The Day" which one reviewer reckoned reminded him of "Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto on a beach in Spain" while "I'm Gonna Praise" features some particularly tasty bass playing. Of the slower songs, the nine-minute ballad "Great Is Your Love" features some beautiful female vocals. The 13 tracks and 79 minutes of music on offer here will appeal to those who like their worship "big event"-style, representing as it does a very good example of the approach.
