Re.vive is certainly right; this is spiritually and musically lively enough to wake the dead. Dominated by Paul Oakley, he blasts open the live worship with one of the best guitar riffs ever used in CCM. Like most 'best of' compilations, most of these tracks are well known and nothing new. Balanced between the youth worship and tracks from the late night concerts, the major fault of the compilation is that it is missing a track from Delirious?, who regularly packed out the venue. Tree63 stand out as the class act, next to tracks from Phatfish and The Tribe. The graphic design should win an award.
