Vineyard UK have produced a handful of albums that have changed worship times all over the UK. This collection is a reminder of some of those projects' songs. This box set is actually a repackage of three albums: 'Rain Down' (2008), 'You Are A Holy God' and 'Turn It All Down' (both 2006). The fact that their most popular tune "Hungry" appears on two of the albums might give you an idea of the amount of thought that has gone into these compilations. All the songs you would expect are here: "Be The Centre" (this also appears twice!), "Surrender", "Lord Reign In Me", "All Who Are Thirsty" and many more. The problem with this kind of compilation is that you remember the original albums that the songs came from, so you end up digging out the old albums, because each one is an entity, rather than a 'greatest hits' collection. Some will enjoy this compilation and I'm sure it will enrich personal worship times, but personally I'll wait for a new Vineyard UK album.

The Reflections box set from Vineyard Records UK brings together three popular themed albums, focusing on holiness, intimacy and closeness. 31 beautifully arranged, powerful Vineyard songs that encourage us to surrender daily in order to experience greater intimacy, to respond in worship to a God who is holy. A hunger for more of God and His desire for our lives has been a prominent feature of the songs coming out of Vineyard churches in the UK for over 10 years, and these popular songs express not only that longing, but something of the freedom and wonderful intimacy that we experience as we give Him more of our hearts.
Featuring Worship Leaders BRIAN DOERKSEN, BRENTON BROWN, KATHRYN SCOTT, NIGEL BRIGGS, MARC JAMES, SAM LANE and WENDY O'CONNELL.
