There is no denying the impact that Jesus Culture (from Redding and more recently Sacramento, California) and United Pursuit (from Knoxville, Tennessee) have had on the international Church. The 12 tracks presented here are clearly meant as an introduction to those worshippers who are only now waking up to the breadth and depth of the worship emanating from these revivalists. In fact this cheap and cheerful compilation at a bargain price offers a discount voucher for future purchases. Particular standouts for me were Chris McClarney's "Everything And Nothing Less" and Chris Quilala and Ian McIntosh's "Light Of The World" (from Jesus Culture's 'Unstoppable Love' album) are present alongside some which might escaped your attention. For me that included two tracks from the Will Reagan/United Pursuit album 'Live At Banks House' originally released in 2010, which has now been chosen for UK distribution by Elevation music. Although raw and stripped back musically, the passion is undeniable! There is also the title track from Kim Walker-Smiths "Still Believe" (2013) which is worth the price of admission alone! This presents a great opportunity to discover worship music of high quality.
