Recognising the contributions that Australia and New Zealand have made on the charismatic worship scene in the past twenty years, Integrity Music draw together a pile of classic songs from people like Darlene Zschech, Chris Falson, Jo Vogels (his "Victory Chant" is always a winner!) and Geoff Bullock. You even get an old chestnut or two thrown in like the first song I ever learnt when I got saved in 78 - "Jesus Name Above All Names". Now that's what I call old and yet it feels fresh in this setting. Overall, this is nicely produced and although it leans towards bland here and there, the album has enough soulful moments to connect. Falson's "All Honour, All Glory, All Power" gets all intense and vibey and Geoff Bullock's "The Power Of Your Love" sounds fab (I suspect it's crooned here by David Evans but as with a lot of worship albums, precise credits are hard to come by!). I doubt whether the world really needs another version of "Shout To The Lord" but its inclusion is unfortunately essential if we're mapping out the songs from down under that have changed nations! Interesting concept which works in places, but suffers from some terrible tracking, with some tracks running into each other like an audio version of a car crash. Other than those jarring moments, this just about works.

Since the late 1970's, we've been on a journey to a newer, more honest way of worshiping. It began in Australia and New Zealand, a welling up of the Spirit that put a new face on praise and worship music. Since then, the songs from that part of the world have been more than just spiritually significant; they have been essential elements in the development of praise and worship in the Church. In A Cry from Down Under, we've selected 11 songs that capture the spirit of this change.
