Just what you've come to expect of the United youth team - lively new worship songs with a rock edge, played before a packed throng of young people at the annual Encounterfest Hillsong Youth Conference. Accompanying the CD is a DVD, with documentary background on Hillsong youth team and some of the CD performances. The sameness of some of the songs leads me to prefer the more imaginative and varied songs from the writers of the earlier established Soul Survivor conferences in the UK. However, this package will be a further encouragement for the army of young worshippers out there.

I bought for me a United We Stand Album but when I watched it I decided to swap it to Mighty To Save. I loved much all of your songs but your video made it awful. May be it is better if you will made it in such a way that it can be distinguished from worldly performers. Overall, I am overwhelmed.

This album is the best the United team have given us yet. They show raw passion and enthusiasm for God and his church reaching a lost world. Musically, it is phenomenal - not a better Christian cd yet. Worship to this in spirit and truth and you will reach new heights. Our young people love it!
Also, in response to the slating 'Look to You' got, this is biblically founded and is inspired by revelation and scriptural authority - more than just a skim over the surface!

"look to You" was amazing, 'united we stand' is a little less than the other one, its got awesome songs, great lyrics, and passionate worship, its the United sound, it would be cool if they could put a different touch to their songs, love their lyrics, but same progressions, like i said its the United sound,
"Revolution" its got some complexity to it, and overall i think "From inside out" its the greatest song!!!

God bless United, passionate worship, and always looking forward to their new CD's
for me its a MUST HAVE!!! :)

this album is beautiful, the lyrics are the cry of my heart. 'fire fall down' and 'from the inside out' are two awesome tracks that really impacted and brought me into worship...
the lyrics for indide out; "my heart and my soul, i give you control, consume me from the inside out, let justice and praise become my embrace... everlasting your light will shine when all else fades... the cry of my heart is to bring you praise!"

This cd is amazing. The only dissapointing part is that many of the songs aren't able to be adopted by other congregations. "Revolution" is a great song, and will be a cry from our generation. The guitar parts are more complex, the drums are amazing...but the "choir" sound get's annoying sometimes. Overall a great lovesong to God. The cd could have done without some tracks...however..the songwriters are crazy talented.. Go buy it!!!!!!!!!!

just picked up this hot cd today in Aus, its seriously a great CD... if you were a fan of the last CD "Look to you" then you will propably like this one even more. They've gone for the ROCK style even more, but the HOLY SPIRIT just moves through the songs... those that like it loud will like it, those that like good ballads then you'll like it too.
Its growing on me the more I listen to it. LOVE IT... haven't had a cd make me cry for a while, but this one did
