The release of the yearly live album from the Christian conferences Soul Survivor and Momentum was delayed somewhat due to the STL debacle at the end of last year. However, it's been well worth the wait as once again the quality of performance and songwriting is top quality. The predominant worship leaders this time are Ben Cantelon, Beth Croft and Tim Hughes, all demonstrating passion and flair, while the new songs here are memorable enough to circulate around the national church. Again the music from each conference is presented on a separate CD, the Soul Survivor disk holding 10 tracks and the Momentum one holding six. This year's album includes the great anthemic songs "Not Ashamed" and "Jesus Saves" that show how well worship and rock can be intertwined; and the power ballad "You're Beautiful" that does a great job in speaking of the overwhelming beauty of God. With so many live worship projects released these days it's impressive that Soul Survivor to be the market leader in the field.
