As we all know, Vertical Worship have emerged to become one of the big names in the modern worship movement and are part of Chicago's Harvest Bible Chapel. Here, they have re-imagined six of the most popular tracks from their album 'Bright Faith Bold Future'. These new arrangements were recorded live at the Chicago Planetarium. "Yes I Will" starts the EP singing about a God who will never fail; "Open The Gates" is the most uplifting song on the EP and is a song about asking God for more power; and "Real Thing" has some powerful lyrics ("I searched the world for Heaven but it was Heaven chasing me"). 'Planetarium EP' is well produced and sung, the harmonies work and this is a thoroughly engaging stop-gap release while we wait for the next blockbuster album from Chicago's worship phenomenon.
