Another varied album from the vocals, skills and mind of Florida's Rawsrvnt. This time it's an "expanded and rebranded" mix of his 'No Ordinary' album available as a digital release. New takes and new guests give the original, Grammy-nominated album a fresh feel. Most tracks - like the lead song "No Ordinary Love" (featuring the silky vocals of Lisa McClendon), the original "On Fire", "Bow Down" (featuring Sean Slaughter) and "Hear I Am To Worship" (with CCM star guest Audrey Assad) are very similar, if not the same as the originals. In the fresh mix of "On Fire" (now with Richie Righteous) there's still the incredibly infectious (almost Outkast-esque) vibe as Rawsrvnt rocks out in worship, on fire for God. Another standout is the awesome "Jesus Jam" with KJ-52. If ever you need a banging, party worship tune - get this one playing! Other musical styles include the reggae "The Almighty" featuring St Matthew. The album also includes a dub version of the same tune. Finally, worth mentioning is that Rawsrvnt adds a beautiful worship mix to the project in the soulful "Beautiful/Be With You", replacing the original hip-hop version. If you haven't got 'No Ordinary Love' then it's well worth getting 'Love Deluxe'.
