Jam-packed full of great songs penned over the years by the Newcastle rock worship stalwarts, this release, both CD and DVD, is a live recording from The Riverside Centre in Derby. Songs from the 'Universal' and 'Revolution' albums feature heavily as well as a stirring version of "Holy, Holy, Holy" from their first album 'Rainmaker.' It was this song that lead singer, Ken Riley, says opened doors for the band. It certainly did. Nine years on, five albums down the line, here is the evidence from when Yfriday walked through those doors. This album is energetic, dynamic and also gives a sense of how the audience respond in worship to their music. The accompanying DVD is the same live session as on the CD and with the on stage visuals the atmosphere is, if anything, increased. A full-on rock worship experience.
