The singer/pianist is well known in worship circles. Somehow though, this recording comes across as contrived and veneered. The business of recording live albums is admittedly a tricky one, where inevitable re-takes will ensue unless the band and congregation are well practiced already. However, after a certain point the magic of the live atmosphere inexorably vanishes. This album may well appeal to a number of listeners, but I did find Terrry's vibrato a little forced. And I always look for a worship album to spur me to do just that - worship God. I did not find this helped my quiet time.

Yet another brilliant recording by Terry and his group. This music stirs up the worshipper's spirit immediately, and I have to say that this album has brought me deep healing after the loss of my wife. Great instrumentals and vocals, with Terry's massive anointing in full measure. I have to say also that this site's reviewers seem to have a problem with Terry's music, and once again their opinion differs from those who have been blessed. Maybe they should stop being critics. Maybe critics should get a life. I don't know. But this album is certainly one of Terry's best.

Just yesterday I put this album on to play while I was praying with two friends. This music may not be acceptable for a critic's ear, but if you are seeking the presence of God, this album is anointed to usher in the glory of God. As we sang and worshipped with Terry, the power and presence of God was with us... in a way I have never experienced before! Terry has 'the real thing.'
I was disappointed in the low rating of this album.

Upon my first listening I may have agreed.
After a few more times I truly found the intimate place with Jesus that Terry has shared with this album.
There is a beauty and love found in this album that if you ask Jesus to reveal you will be blessed out of your socks!
If you want to look at the surface of things you could miss the grace and glory in this album.
Sorry, I simply don’t agree with Ralph.
