Although they are still a relatively young band, Salvador have quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting live acts in Christendom. Checking out this DVD which captures them in full flow it's not hard to see why. The Latin grooves of "David Danced" and "Lord I Come Before You" see the band working up a full head of steam complete with horn section and infectious beats. Moving from Spanish to English and from celebration to worship, the band show their versatility. However Salvador run out of steam, wasting their talents on cover versions of songs like "Here I Am To Worship", "I Love You Lord", "Open The Eyes Of My Heart" and "I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever". So the second half of this performance becomes very ordinary indeed. Much better if they wrote some more of their own worship songs than to become a covers band. It's a DVD of two halves - Brian and the team really threw away their chances in the second half. Shame really!
