Reviewed by Tim Holden

This is the second album from the Chicago collective and continues with the theme of corporate worship aimed at God as a foretaste of Heaven. The large scale rock worship arena is quite full so it is no surprise that you can hear hints of other bands here - mainly Hillsong but there is some Bethel and Jesus Culture hiding in there as well. It is also a touch formulaic with the same rhythmic and melodic feel turning up more than once. This is not to say that it is a bad album, the songs are well written and arranged and the performance has spirit and passion. The standout title track and "I'm Going Free (Jailbreak)" are both excellent and the album as a whole will encourage worship. It is just that there is a feeling of having heard it all before.
