Like any other Spring Harvest album, songwise you get a mixture of often recorded songs with some newies by a variety of worship leaders (this time Steve and Velveta Thompson, Kate Simmonds & Stuart Townend, Robin Mark, Graham Kendrick and Geraldine Latty). Sometimes the effect is invigorating - Marty Sampson's joyful Hillsong romp "God Is Great"; sometimes the effect is rather dull - Stuart Townend slowing down Tim Hughes' classic "Hear I Am To Worship" doesn't add anything. Graham Kendrick's slow, haunting "Lord You've Been Good To Me" isn't, of course, as good as his studio version but then that's the nature of live albums like this one. An okay purchase if you were at Minehead or Skegness but discerning worship album buyers will be able to find better albums elsewhere on the racks.
